A Canadian driver had their black fifth-generation Chevy Camaro impounded by police after they were caught doing donuts on the grass in a public park.
According to The Campbell River Mirror, police were called to James Bay Park in Victoria, British Columbia after a driver was observed performing donuts next to the playground equipment. When authorities arrived on the scene, they found a black base model fifth-generation Chevy Camaro situated near some circular tire marks in the grass.
Victoria Police suspected the driver, who has not been identified, was doing donuts in the grass at the park in the sports car. There were also children playing on the playground equipment at the time the officer’s arrived at the park, suggesting the driver may have been doing the donuts while young kids played nearby.
Additionally, the Chevy Camaro was unregistered and uninsured and is believed to have been driven to British Columbia from the neighbouring province of Alberta. The driver allegedly planned to camp in a park during their time in British Columbia before returning home to Alberta in the unregistered Chevy.

The Victoria Police impounded the Chevy Camaro for seven days on the basis of stunt driving and issued the driver $794 in fines for having no insurance and driving without consideration.
It should go without saying that doing donuts in a public park with kids playing nearby is a terrible idea. If any Victoria, BC residents are feeling the itch to go fast or do some donuts or burnouts, we’d suggest they go to the quarter-mile oval at the nearby Westshore Speedway instead of the family-friendly James Bay park. Westshore Speedway is also home to a kart track for any budget-minded local car enthusiasts with the need for speed.
