Police officers monitoring CCTV in the Chinese city of Taizhou, Zhejiang Province, were stunned to see a man driving two bumper cars on a busy street.

Officer Liu Yulin said: ‘I saw on the screen that a man was driving two bumper cars. He sat in between the cars, and each foot stepped onto one gas pedal. I immediately radioed the officer at that road section to go and check.’

Officer Xiao Hu then stopped the yellow cars and their owner, a Mr Zhang, who said he was moving the battery-powered bumper cars to a nearby amusement park.

Zhang told police that he and an assistant had been driving the cars but the assistant had been called away after receiving an urgent call.

“I decided to try to drive them both because I didn’t want to leave one blocking the road where it might be stolen,” he added.

Officer Xiao said: ‘Traffic regulations say that bumper cars are not engine vehicles, so they can’t drive onto street.’

However, because the law doesn’t stipulate what punishment a bumper car driver should receive Zhang just got a warning.

So what do you do if that equipment you need to get from point A to point B is also very mobile, fun to drive and… topless? You'd be crazy not to drive it, right? Well, maybe not. A Chinese man going by the name of "Mr Zhang" was caught on surveillance camera driving a pair of bumper cars on a busy city road in the Taizhou, Zhejiang Province of China. And if you're thinking that the bumper cars were somehow daisy-chained together, think again. Mr Zhang can clearly be seen straddling the two cars with one foot on each gas pedal and one hand on each wheel. Remarkable – some people can't even walk and chew gum at the same time. The police eventually caught up to the bumper bandit, but since there were no specific laws saying that you couldn't ride two bumper cars simultaneously, the gentleman was reportedly let off with a warning. Hit the jump to watch in awe as the fabulous Mr. Zhang takes center stage with his bumper car balancing act. Hat tip to Dave! [Source: Metro via DailyPicksandFlicks.com] [...]

    HAHAHAHA! This man made my day! I will laugh so hard if I see a man driving bump cars on the road. I wonder what his plans really are. =)

    The man driving those two bumper cars is lucky he did not figure in any traffic accident. Bumper cars are not designed to be driven on the street. On a lighter note, I must say he is pretty clever for devising a way to drive two bumper cars at the same time.
