One commuter had a bad morning this Thursday when they found their car had disappeared after leaving it unattended outside.
The culprit in this case, however, wasn’t a thief. It was gravity.
According to Saanich Police, the car had rolled 100 metres down the street before colliding with a pole.
The owner had apparently left the car idling to warm up their engine.
The Saanich Police reminded the public in a tweet to take proper precautions when parking by turning vehicle wheels to the curb or shoulder.
Idling time is also limited to three minutes within the CRD.
