Bloke, 92, Filmed Driving Down Melbourne Highway On Motorised Scooter

If you're a slow driver then sitting on the highway can sometimes be a bit stressful. You've got cars flying past you and some people can get narky when you're sticking a little below the speed limit.

Well, spare a thought for this bloke who, at the tender age of 92, decided to jump on a Melbourne highway in his mobility scooter.

It seems like the man didn't care that the speed limit was a casual 100km/h while he was chilling on less than a fifth of that.

Balls of steel that one.

Thankfully a motorist behind him slowed down and chucked his hazard lights on to ensure any other drivers would avoid him. Audi driver Bruce Bromley tried to encourage the older bloke to pull over a tiny bit so he was off the road.

"Move over. You're on the freeway - you're not supposed to be on the freeway," he yelled to the scooter rider.

He called the cops to see if they could get him off the busy highway and the recording has been revealed to the public.

"I just told him to try and pull over and he told me to fuck off," he told the 000 responder. "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."

Mr Bromley's good efforts ended up paying off as a paddy wagon eventually turned up and pulled him over safely.

Police released a statement to 9 News, saying: "Police quickly arrived and spoke to the Glen Waverley man and determined he had been reported missing a short time earlier by family members.

"He was taken to Glen Waverley Police Station where he was reunited with his family."

That could have easily have ended badly so we're glad that the cops also didn't charge the 92-year-old. The same can't be said for this pensioner in the UK who was denied Macca's while on his mobility scooter.

Michael Green, 62, arrived at the fast food chain on his scooter but was refused by staff as the drive through is only intended for 'road worthy' vehicles.

The lad caused hour-long delays for takeaway meals as he refused to budge in protest.

However, after police showed up he was breathalysed, after which he was arrested. He was charged with being drunk in charge of a carriage under the 1872 Licensing Act.
