Video: Offbeat - Impatient driver swerves on pavement to beat traffic

Have your say

This is the moment a driver decided waiting in a short line of traffic was not for them – and drove along the pavement instead.

Footage of the incident, captured on cameras in another car, shows the light blue vehicle swerving out from a line of traffic and driving along a 100 metre stretch of footpath, bypassing at least half a dozen stationery vehicles.

The 30-second film, taken near Hinckley’s Dodwells industrial estate, has been shared widely on social media, sparking a police investigation to identify the driver. The driving has been slammed by road safety groups.
