You sure knows that phrase means that you’re going all out, pedal to the metal, right there on the edge. The thing is, on this particular occasion, it had a very literally meaning, as the car was actually stolen.
Now, since the authorities contacted the owner of the dashcam car only after the footage was uploaded to YouTube, it stands to reason that the thief was behind the wheel.
The incident took place last week in Shepparton, Australia and here’s what the cammer had to say: “I was driving home from work and this idiot nearly hit me. Car was stolen locally the night before from a kutunga. The owner of the car and police contacted me shortly after posting this.”
By “a kutunga” we assume he meant Katunga, which is a town in northwest Victoria, just 44 km away from Shepparton.
As for claiming that the driver of the Falcon “nearly hit” him, we reckon he was referring to the car slowing down too much at one point while he was drifting, where the cammer came perilously close to rear-ending him.
No other information was provided, but we’re hopeful that upon reviewing the footage, authorities will be able to track down the car, together with the person(s) responsible for stealing it.
