Sure, one vehicle rolling through a red light can be enough to turn heads.

But how about not one, not two, but five?

Such was the case at a Vancouver intersection recently.

In dashcam footage captured by Henry Yu and shared with Daily Hive, two cars can be seen pulling up on either side of the vehicle and stopping at a red light.

Apparently deciding that the rules of the road don’t apply to them, or just deciding the light is simply taking too long to change, the driver on the left decides to simply drive through.

Then, in an apparent case of following the leader, the driver on the right does the same thing. This is is then followed by three more vehicles who run the red light.

It’s not like it’s an empty intersection either. Two pedestrians can be seen walking between the two cars as they roll through the light, a cyclist is seen in the distance, and other cars with the actual right-of-way are also seen.

Yu told Daily Hive the incident happened at an intersection near Quebec Street.

While it’s hard to know exactly what was going through any of the drivers‘ heads to make them think this was a good idea, here’s a quick reminder that a red light does, in fact, mean stop.
