From the files of "wouldn't it be cool if..." comes this case of mistaken vehicular identity. See, the driver of this go-kart must think that he's piloting an actual street-legal motor vehicle. That has to be the explanation as why someone would be crazy enough to take a go-kart on city streets. The poster of this video was on his way to the Sydney, Australia's Kingsford-Smith Airport, when he spotted this brave, or very stupid, individual. (Perhaps he is both?)
At one point the kart driver nearly loses control of the diminutive vehicle, almost careening into oncoming traffic. This video should serve as a reminder to why we have sensible traffic laws, and regulation requirements for motor vehicles. Apparently the Sydney police agree, and are keeping an eye out for the driver. We hope this guy made it to work safely, but really, this is a little ridiculous. Fair warning: There is quite a lot of accent-tinged foul language in this one.
