Man drives more than 50 yards without checking the bike rack


A man from Wiltshire has confidently driven over 50 yards without checking his mirrors for signs of the bike rack sliding off the back of his car.

Peter Thape (43) from Chippenham negotiated two speed bumps, a pothole, and a sudden braking without desperately staring into his mirror.

He did, however, ask his wife if the bikes were ok, as he and his now muted, fearful family make their way onto the motorway.

‘No way are these five bikes staying on the back of this car for 200 miles!’ said Thape.

‘We’re going to end up on the News here,’ added Thape.
