Wednesday, December 10, 2014, 4:28 PM - A four-and-a-half minute video featuring a woman who's now referred to as 'Calgary's worst driver' has gone viral on YouTube, racking up more than 4.5 million views since the weekend.
The surveillance video shows the driver of a silver BMW attempting to back out of a parking spot and damaging a vehicle in the process.
The driver spends more than 4 minutes trying to back out of the cramped spot on a slippery, snow-coated surface.

A pedestrian steps in to offer a hand, allowing her to finally make a getaway.
On Monday police tracked down the woman and issued a $115 traffic ticket for "unsafe backing", the CBC reports.
A person who spoke to the woman says she didn't know she hit the other car. Police didn't mention the video to her so it's not clear if she's aware of her YouTube fame.
