Driver Shows Off In Car Park But Get's It Badly Wrong

A show-off driver, performing handbrake turns in a supermarket carpark, has been ridiculed on Facebook after Greater Manchester Police posted pictures of the aftermath.

According to GMP Failsworth and Hollinwood, the Audi driver had been showing off at Tesco with donuts (not the food kind) and handbrake turns.

However, it went wrong when the driver managed to crash into a metal bollard, rip it out of the ground and get it wedged under the wheel arch.

It is understood that the car was abandoned after the incident.

In a post on Facebook, the police wrote a mocking message to the driver. It read: "The result of irresponsible driving coupled with bald tyres.

"The driver was showing off performing handbrake turns and donuts on the Tesco car park. Got it wrong and paid the price.

"Oh and we have the car should you decide you want it back!!"

It is understood that no one was hurt during the incident.

Comments on the post from members of the public saw them brand the driver as a 'plonker', 'prat', and 'prick'.

Another added: "What a stupid idiot could have been a whole lot worse could have injured somebody or even could have written off some vehicles. Serves him right."

Maybe, though, there is an answer to this bizarre happening.

A recent study by Privilege Car Insurance showed that first-borns are worse drivers than their younger siblings.

The study looked at the driving habits of 1,395 motorists, concluding that a huge percentage of older brothers and sisters are more likely to develop bad habits.

89 percent of older siblings are likely to speed, 35 percent of those will be slapped with fines as a result, 47 percent will cut off fellow drivers, and 46 percent are likely to use the middle of the road, Metro reports.

All the information indicates that they're more likely to either cause or be in an accident, proven by them trying to multi-task while driving.

30 percent were found to break the law by using their mobile phones, while another 17 percent admitted to applying make-up. This resulted in 22 percent having a minor accident and 15 percent having a serious incident in the last five years.
