Moment 92-Year-Old Drives Mobility Scooter Along Busy Motorway Before Telling Motorist To F**k Off

This video shows the moment a 92-year-old pensioner took his mobility scooter onto a motorway, drove at speeds of 16 kilometres per hour (when the limit was over six times more) and even told a fellow motorist to 'fuck off' when he was urged to get off the busy roads.

The old bloke drove down one of Melbourne's busiest freeways at some point this week in Australia and he was caught doing so by a concerned motorist who promptly phoned the police.

Bruce Bromley was the concerned motorist who decided to drive behind the mobility scooter with his hazard lights flashing as a warning to other road users on the 100kmh motorway.

We bet the lucky fella appreciated Bruce putting himself at risk, that's for sure. Well, maybe not initially because he told Bruce to 'fuck off' when he attempted to confront the old man.

Winding his window down on his approach to the busy road, Bruce shouted to the guy: "Move over, mate, you're on the freeway."

He then called the police to explain the situation which was unfolding before his eyes.

The conversation with the call operator is either really funny or really fucking stressful, depending on the type of person you are. He was obviously trying to get as much information as he could from the situation though, so we geddit.

As the mobility scooter driver pulled on to the service lane, Bruce very clearly pointed out: "I just told him to try and pull over and he told me to 'fuck off'."

The call handler at the end of the phone said: "And you tried to..." Bruce interjected: "Pull him over and he told me to 'fuck off'."

The amused call handler then asked: "Did he swear at you?" Bruce, responded: "Well he told me to fuck off, fuck off is swearing, I think."

When it was suggested that Bruce shouldn't put himself in danger, he simply replied: "Well, what do I do. See, if I go off around him he's going to get collected. I don't want him to get hit."

Speaking to 7 News, Bruce said: "I was just completely shocked. I just told him to try and pull over and he told me to fuck off.

"It was very aggressive, but at 92, the poor bugger was just confused and a bit overwhelmed. If I wasn't there, he would have got collected, and I couldn't sleep at night if something like that happened."

What a LAD.

Police turned up shortly afterwards and confirmed that the man had been reported missing by members of his family earlier.

In a statement, police told 7 News: "He was taken to Glen Waverley Police Station where he was reunited with his family."
