SARASOTA (VINnews)  A driver who frequently took an illegal “shortcut” to avoid traffic has finally been caught.

The idea may have occurred to many of us as we sit in traffic, but we’re too scared (and not crazy enough) to try it. But one man actually drove onto the sidewalk on a regular basis to get past other cars.

Stunning video footage shows the driver divert his car onto the sidewalk and speed past other cars.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office said a person emailed them dashcam footage showing a car driving down a sidewalk, and told officers that this was a regular occurrence on that street.

Deputies went to the scene on Wednesday and saw it happening in real time. The driver, after noticing police, returned to the road, but he was too late.

This video published by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, first shows the dashcam footage sent to police by the good samaritan, and then the dash cam video showing police pulling over the driver.
