Richmond Hill woman sentenced in ‘worst parking job ever’
A 62-year-old Richmond Hill woman whose terrible parking job became the subject of a viral YouTube video last year was sentenced in Newmarket court Tuesday.
Tripta Kaushal was arrested in October after surveillance footage captured her attempting to park her blue BMW SUV at a Markham gym. As she pulled into the space, the vehicle suddenly lunged forward, driving up on top of two parked cars.
Kaushal then fled the scene without reporting the collision.
The video was picked up on websites around the world, with audiences declaring the incident the ‘worst parking job ever.”
Kaushal pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge of failing to report, and was given a $500 fine and ordered to pay restitution to the two victims whose vehicles she damaged. She was also given six months probation and is restricted from driving between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.
