Police Encourage Warwickshire Joyrider To Drive Wrong Way Up Dual Carriageway (Video)
IN this video a teenaged driver pilots his silver Citroen Saxo facing wrong way down a a stretch of dual carriageway in Coleshill, Warwickshire. The police give chase. Then more police join the chase. The crowd watching the DIY entertainment cheer.
The driver escaped. He abandoned the car 12 miles away in Coventry.
Which begs the question: what is the point of the police? It was their chasing – all those bells and whistles – that gave the youth the chance to stick two fingers up to authority. Their presence legitimised the driver’s stupidity. Without the police, the video is just of a dickhead driving the wrong way up the road. That is fun for only as long it takes to casue an accident.
Toss in the excitement of police and the boy racer is a rebel given a cause to keep on driving…
