340 miles … in reverse!



October 6th, 2006 by Kat Kingsley-Hughes

Driving down the highway the wrong way is one thing, but driving down the highway the right way but going backwards is something else, even if you are down under!  After 12 miles on his journey to Perth he was caught by Police who were shocked to find that he planned to drive the entire 340 mile journey in reverse gear after he’d discovered his forward gears didn't work . 

When he was stopped he was doing 35 mph because he’d found driving at 50 mph caused him to swerve wildly.  He did have some sense then.   What makes me think this guy's reverse gear wouldn't have lasted out much longer? 

And imagine the neck ache from looking over your shoulder all that way.   Or maybe he was just using his mirrors … doesn’t bear thinking about!
