Driver repeatedly crashes into parked car after getting blocked in space with no way out
| Last updated
A frustrated motorist was left with few options but to purposefully crash their car again and again into another vehicle after it blocked it in a parking space.
Even people without a driver's license will know that crashing your car is generally the last thing you want to do while behind the wheel, but this video shared online has proven that sometimes you don't really have much choice.
In the clip shared on the Reddit thread 'r/Whatcouldgowrong', a driver could be seen completely trapped in on all sides by vehicles in a car park.
Obviously the car park wasn't designed to trap its customers - instead one of the drivers had made the incredibly inconsiderate choice to pull up in the worst place possible: directly in front of another vehicle's only exit route.
The owner of the trapped car presumably returned from wherever they'd been to find their car stuck, and with no idea how long it would be before the other driver came back, they decided to move their car out of the way themselves.
Footage shows the car repeatedly bashing into the stationary vehicle, each time moving it slightly further away and providing a greater escape route for the driver.
After numerous crashes, the driver made enough room to escape and manoeuvred their car around the other parked cars, notably making much more of an effort not to hit any more on their way out.
Their car actually appeared relatively unscathed, though the same can't be said for the car that was doing the blocking, which appeared covered in dents and scratches after its fight.
The driver's method of escape definitely isn't recommended, and would be an expensive one when it comes to covering the costs of repairs, but this particular car owner was obviously willing to pay the price.
If you do happen to find yourself in the situation - and you don't fancy crashing your car to get out of it - the Met Police recommend trying to find the owner of the vehicle, contacting your local council and reporting the antisocial behaviour online.
They're definitely more sensible options, and the driver has sparked mixed reactions for deciding to go with a more head-on approach.
Responding to the clip, one person wrote: "I know it's not legal for that black car to be there. Why not just have it towed? Why even risk the damage to your own car?"
Other viewers suggested the driver could have been dealing with an 'emergency' which required them to get out fast.
Either way, the person who blocked their car will certainly think twice about ever doing it again.
