Connecticut’s Worst Drivers

There’s no shortage of crazy dashcam videos available on YouTube, now one North Haven woman is on a mission to expose some of Connecticut’s worst drivers.

“Some people just do the stupidest things. I still get shocked after doing this for over a year,” Wendy LeGault told Fox CT this week. Wendy is the videographer behind the “Bad Drivers of Connecticut,” YouTube channel.

LeGault uploaded her 18th “Bad Drivers of Connecticut” compilation over the weekend (above). Note some language may be NSFW.

“People like to watch people do bad things and it’s just, I guess, it’s entertaining for some people, educational for other people,” said LeGault.
