NERVOUS NOVICE driver Zhang decided to let her dad get her car out of a narrow alley. Only one problem…
This CCTV clip shows the hilarious – if somewhat dangerous – moment when a novice driver lost her confidence and let her very tipsy dad take the wheel.
The video, which is currently a viral smash on Chinese social media site Weibo, shows the young woman named Zhang cautiously trying to pull out of a narrow alley after a family lunch in teh southern province of Zhuhai.
After dinging the car’s bumper on an obstruction Zhang decides that the manoeuvre is too difficult and swaps seats with her dad.
Unfortunately her dad, according to a report published in the Beijing Evening News, had enjoyed one or two refreshing beers at lunch.
While Zhang’s driving is inexpert but slow and cautious, her dad’s is wildly overconfident and he slams into obstacle after obstacle as pedestrians race to get out of his way.
A coupel of his furious relatives tried to persuade him to stop ‘helping’ but it was no use.
The Beijing Evening News reports that he was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
He has been sentenced to 14 days in prison and fined 4000 yuan (about £450). He has also been banned from driving for six months.
