Queue-cutting Hilux driver uses verge to avoid traffic in Wangara

Yet another Perth driver has been captured avoiding basic road rules to escape traffic.

A white Toyota Hilux took off-roading to a residential area in Perth’s north, when backed-up traffic along Wanneroo Road in Wangara became too much for the driver to handle.

Needing to get down a nearby side street, the driver was presumably so frustrated at the sight of brake-lights that they mounted the kerb and drove along a verge until they could make the turn.

Just moments before the incident, two runners were seen crossing the same verge and footpath.

Submitted to Perth Dash Cam Captures on Facebook, “Morgsy”, who caught the vision on dash cam, made light of the event by uploading the Sesame Street theme song as a backing track.

The video comes as new research released last week revealed one in three motorists in WA admitted to being perpetrators of road rage.

The survey found that drivers who used their mobile phones, merged incorrectly, tailgated or hogged the right-hand lane were the most common trigger for on-road violence.

Congestion was also ranked as one of the top aggravators and was considered to be more annoying than cyclists.

Clearly for the driver of this Hilux, congestion was the trigger.

The Hilux driver drove far enough along the verge to make the turn.
