An elderly man has shocked motorists after taking his mobility scooter into traffic on some of Sydney’s busiest roads.
The man’s travels were captured on dashcam footage shared to 7News.
In the footage, the man is seen taking his scooter in the right lane of heavy traffic, at one stage crossing the Princes Highway.
The driver of the car with the dashcam can be heard on the phone to police, providing updates on the elderly man’s movements.
After crossing the Princes Highway, the man took a turn into a dead-end street before heading back towards the Princes Highway.
Eventually the man returned to the safety of a footpath, away from the heaving traffic.
When police eventually caught up with the man, they found him to be disorientated and sent him home in a taxi.
