The pensioner ignored the motorist's requests to stop when he was asked to move off the busy speeding highway, until he was pulled over by the police.
In an unforeseen turn of events, a video has been making rounds on the internet which showcases a 92-year-old pensioner driving his mobility scooter on a busy freeway. The video indicates him driving at a speed of 16 kilometers per hour (when the limit was over six times more).
To top it all off, he even asked a fellow driver to 'f**k off' when he was asked to move off the busy speeding highway. Moreover, the rather 'ballsy' elderly man drove down one of Melbourne's most busy freeways somewhere this week.
He was caught doing as such by a concerned driver who informed the police about the occurrence. Bruce Bromley was the motorist who decided to drive behind the mobility scooter with his hazard lights on in a bid to warn other drivers on the 100kmh highway.
Naturally, one would be inclined to think that the 92-year-old pensioner would have been in Bruce's debt for his utmost help and support.But, well, one would be absolutely wrong! As it turns out when Bruce tried to confront the old man, he was met with a rather rude 'f**k off!'
Bruce decided to pull his windows down and warn the elderly guy regarding his actions on a rather busy road. Upon confronting the old man Bruce shouted, "Move over, mate, you're on the freeway." However, the old man didn't pay any attention to his warnings.
Consequently, Bruce decided to phone the police to explain the rather bizarre occurrence that was taking place in front of him. And it's only fair to say that the conversation between Bruce and the call operator was stressful, funny and bizarre, all at the same time!
But to be fair, he was only doing his job by getting out as much information from Bruce as possible. As the mobility scooter pulled off in the service lane, Bruce clearly stated, "I just told him to try and pull over and he told me to 'f**k off'."
The call handler at that point asked, "And you tried to..." Bruce almost instantly intervened, "Pull him over and he told me to 'f**k off'," The call handler was left stunned and then inquired, "Did he swear at you?" to which Bruce replied, "Well he told me to f*ck off, f**k off is swearing, I think."
Speaking to 7 News, Bruce said, "I was just completely shocked. I just told him to try and pull over and he told me to f**k off. It was very aggressive, but at 92, the poor bugger was just confused and a bit overwhelmed. If I wasn't there, he would have got collected, and I couldn't sleep at night if something like that happened."
