Mann Ave at Wilkinson Rd. As I was preparing to turn left, a truck with contracting company markings approached at high speed, tailgated, honked at me and attempted to run me into a parked vehicle. Good Guy Saanich PD was on point!
I was contacted by the owner of the company who’s markings appear on the side of the truck and he had the following to say.
Regarding the video you posted mentioning my business, I would like to apologize on behalf of my employee. I am sorry about what happened. I will talk to him on Monday about how he was driving because that is unacceptable.
I would like to ask you to remove the company name from your youtube video title and from the facebook post. I understand your frustration but this was an incident between you and someones personal vehicle who is simply supporting the business with a sticker and it is showing my company in a negative light.
As a fellow cyclist Im glad you’re documenting incidents like this and that you brought this to my attention. Im sure the ticket has taught him a lesson and once again I will speak with him on Monday about his driving.
then on Monday, I received this followup:
I’ve talked to the employee today about his driving and have written him up for the incident.
He handled the situation very poorly and once again on behalf of my company and the individual I am glad you’re ok and that nothing happened.
I have also gotten him to remove my sticker from his personal vehicle.
Saanich BC punishment pass against a cyclist.
