How a driving instructor allegedly got away with decades of harassment and abuse The Big Story

    • Daily News

UPDATE: On Nov. 23, 2021, Crown Counsel decided not to proceed with sexual assault charges against Steve Wallace. Wallace died within days of that decision.

Steve Wallace claims he's taught more than 25,000 people who to drive. Dozens of them say he harassed and abused them while he did so. The allegations which now date back into the 1970s came to light after one young woman, who says he harassed her during a lesson, created a social media account about it—and the victims have been sharing stories since. Now Wallace faces charges and two communities ask themselves the same questions: How did this happen? Why did nobody come forward sooner?
