Amateur cameraman just happened to be in the right place at the right time to capture this. Filmed yesterday at Alexandra Headland on Qld's Sunshine Coast, not so sunshiney at the moment! That white snow-like stuff is foam whipped up off the surf. Just keep your eyes on the two policemen.

I'm surprised that the cops aren't making a move to arrest that driver.

I believe they did. The clip posted to youtube was a truncated version of one posted on facebook via Vimeo, where I first saw it. In that version you can see the car stopping for a bit and the policemen move towards it so I'm assuming the driver was fined at the very least.

Last thing you'd expect, hey. What an idiot!

Did the driver get a ticket for dangerous driving?
He could have killed someone!

I would hope so. As I mentioned to draycevixen above, in the longer version of the clip the police do move towards the car which has come to a halt, so I imagine he would have been fined.

What an IDIOT! Thank heaven the officers were able to scramble out of the way in time.

Lucky, huh. That was the last thing you'd expect. Idiot is right; in the longer version on facebook the cameraman can be heard calling the driver a dickhead, a sentiment with which I agree totally.

What a dickhead!! I bet the cops were on to him quick smart. Imagine what all that salty foam will do to the car too.

Had a bit of a break in the weather this afternoon. Went out the back to find the lawn littered with mangoes that had been blown off the tree.

One can hope that the car will rust away after that.

Ouch, hope you felt like mangoes for dinner! It cleared up here for a bit too and I went to the shops; feeling stir crazy being cooped up in the house yesterday.

I haven't heard that, but earlier today the Qld police website was saying that Bundaberg North had to be evacuated. Could have been that.

Yes, in full agreement about the car driver. That was such a stupid thing to do.

One of my favourite songs, too. Loved Zep, back in the day.

Re: Amazing!
Saw this one on the Ch 9 news today while we were at M's place, doing the Federal work ... we just sat there and thought NO WAI! Then they played it over a couple of times and when we finally realised just what was happening, we couldn't stop laughing (M included) ... yeah, definitely a dickhead, but still quite amusing. Those two coppers were certainly very nimble, weren't they? *g* Definitely one to save and keep ... ;)

Re: Amazing!
It blew me away that anyone could be so stupid! What a dangerous stunt. Lucky for the cops that they were nimble. Did the tv news report say if any charges were laid against the driver?

Re: Amazing!
Only in Australia! Sorry late replying but things have just been "strange" for a while for me .... anyway, not a thing on the TV news that night about the driver being charged for his "ride in the wild surf". Truly makes you wonder just how he managed to do that tho (and yes, I have saved the video for the giggles). :)
