A 92-year-old man decided to use his mobility scooter on the Melbourne highway, a place where the speed limit is 100 kilometers per hour.
In the video that was filmed by a motorist, you could clearly see that the 92-year-old man did not care.
Luckily a motorist that saw him decided to chuck on his hazard lights to make sure that drivers will not hit him and could avoid him.
Bruce Bromley, an Audi Driver tried his best to get the old man off the highway.
He yelled “Move over. You’re on the freeway – you’re not supposed to be on the freeway” at the old man.
And eventually, he ended up calling the cops to make sure that they could get him off the highway.
When he called the 000, he said, “I just told him to try and pull over and he told me to fuck off.”
He added, “I’m just going behind him with my hazards on, but the traffic’s obviously pretty dangerous at the moment. If I go off around him, he’s going to get collected. He’s just driving along quite happily.”
The efforts of Bruce led the police to find the old man and pull him over to make sure that he was alright.
In a statement that was released by the police, it said, “Police quickly arrived and spoke to the Glen Waverley man and determined he had been reported missing a short time earlier by family members.”
“A passing motorist spotted the 92-year-old man merging into traffic in the 100km/h zone and traveled behind him with hazard lights while calling Triple Zero.”
The statement added, “He was taken to Glen Waverley Police Station where he was reunited with his family.”
The police officer that stopped him handled the situation pretty well, luckily the old man was not charged down by the officer.
The police used a breath analyzer to check if he was drunk, and it turns out that he was.
The 92-year-old man was then arrested in charge of a carriage under the 1872 licensing act.
