LAPD Searching for Backwards Driver

Quote:
Investigators with the LAPD’s West Traffic Bureau were looking into a video posted online that shows a car driving backwards for miles on Laurel Canyon Boulevard through the Hollywood Hills, police said.

According to the description, the car drove in reverse on the narrow and windy Laurel Canyon from Mulholland Drive to Sunset Boulevard, a mileslong section that is mostly comprised of one lane on each side.

Pedestrians and other motorists in the area were possibly in danger as a result of the stunt.

Most of the 4-minute footage uploaded to the video-sharing website showed a dark-colored Audi sedan driving in reverse down the busy road during daylight hours.

A man was behind the wheel of the vehicle and a woman was in the passenger seat.

At one point, the car in the video can be seen changing lanes and passing a pickup truck at the bottom of the hill, where lanes increase on both sides.

An investigation into the incident would likely begin on Monday, according to Lt. Andre Belotto, a watch commander with the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Bureau.

If investigators could identify the driver, various traffic violations could be presented to the L.A. City Attorney, Belotto said. He added the City Attorney’s Office would ultimately decide whether any charges would be filed.

Because no one was injured and no property damages reported, any violations would be considered misdemeanors, according to Belotto.

The charge, he said, could be as minor as “unsafe backing.”

Re: LAPD Searching for Backwards Driver

is there a law against driving in reverse?? i doubt it...

when i learnt to reverse a car i did the same thing...spent a whole afternoon reversing my mates mums mercedes around our suburb blaring out old queen songs....

by the way the guy recording this sounds like a real fucking pussy....like the kind of wanker who'd call the cops if his neighbours music was a bit too loud during superbowl

No big deal. The dude was just practicing for his forklift certification.

Re: LAPD Searching for Backwards Driver

What is the point? To prove you can drive backwards and look like a complete douche in the process?

Re: LAPD Searching for Backwards Driver

Maybe, dudes transmission took a shit and the only gear that worked was reverse? I've done it myself. Not as far as this guy took it but it sure beats paying a tow bill.
