A man has been spotted sitting in a bumper car in the middle of the road in a bizarre dash cam clip.
The middle-aged man wearing shorts and sleeveless top can be seen sitting behind the wheel of the dodgem.
He appeared to be waiting at a T-junction but the clip gives no clue how he got there – or how he planned to get anywhere else.
Ben Peters, 34, shared the video to Facebook captioned with: “Not something you see on the road every day.”
In the short clip, the dashcam driver can be seen driving along a quiet residential street with cars parked along both side of the roads.
As the dashcam car gets closer to the junction, the small white dodgem can be seen.
The dodgem driver can be seen looking right and left as if he is about to make a turn.
On social media, one user commented: “New police cars. Budget cuts and all that.”
While another user posted: “He’s leaving the scene of his own crime of taking new car batteries from a few cars and using a quiet getaway car.”
Company director Mr Peters, from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, said: “It was actually shared to us from one of our customers.
“I’ve never seen a dodgem on the road. I know electric cars are becoming more popular, but this is another level.”
Ben said the driver of the dashcam car was so taken aback he pushed the panic button.
"We install the panic button with the dashcam and manage the system.

"Usually this is pressed in an emergency so we respond immediately to ensure the safety of the driver and to manage the emergency.
“Initially we thought it was quite a serious accident but it turned out to be just an hilarious video."
It remains unclear whether the dodgem spotted in Harlow has its own power.
Three years ago, Tom Evans, 69, from Glasgow, converted a bumper car into a road-legal petrol car.
Last week, it emerged that Mark Harper, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, had bought a dodgem for £400 on ebay and spent £2,500 converting it to run under its own power.
