Scandals with driving schools and commercial driver licenses
are not limited to the United States. Police in Canada are cracking down, and a
current investigation suggests that one driving school in Calgary may have put
hundreds of unqualified drivers on the road.
According to reports from Canadian media, Calgary police
arrested the owner of Delta Driving Feb. 18. The driving school was allegedly
involved in people obtaining illegitimate Class 1 licenses. A number of those
people were later involved in serious collisions, according to reports in the Edmondton Sun.
The police sting
operation included the review of 172 “suspicious” Class 1 licenses, the Sun
reported. The alleged illegitimate licenses were reportedly obtained
with false information about residency and medical exams.
