[WATCH] Motorist irresponsibly drives over pavement to avoid morning traffic

A video shared on social media shows the driver creating his own makeshift lane to speed up his morning commute

Many people living in Malta have to deal with the torture of traffic in the morning, but very few are as resourceful, and irresponsible, as a driver who was caught on camera driving over a pavement to beat the traffic.

Dashcam footage uploaded to the Facebook group Malta Dizastru Totali, shows a van mounting a pavement and driving at some speed along Triq Garibaldi in Marsa.

May users posted comments asking for the driver’s number plated to be passed on to the police.

Others noted that the incident could have had very ugly consequences had someone been walking along the pavement, while many lamented the lack of discipline and enforcement of laws and regulations.
