THIS is the moment a motorist uses the roundabout slingshot method to avoid traffic – before admitting to viewers that “that’s not good morals.”
tick tock User Jobbertok has become known for his Slingshot videos, but the hack is dividing opinions among viewers.
Jobber from Newcastle can be seen in the middle lane overtaking a number of cars, a deft move avoiding long roundabout lines.
The clip is titled “It’s Definitely Bad Morality But Time Is Money Baby” and ends with the motor genius driving down an empty, open road.
In the skid, you first use the right lane to enter a roundabout, then go all the way around to exit where the first exit would have been.
This saves motorists from waiting in traffic jams, as queues form in the left lane after the intersection.
Jobbertok has become famous for its catalog of slingshot clips.
However, there is an ongoing debate as to whether the practice is legal.
The Crown Prosecution Service guidelines state that “abusing lanes to gain an advantage over other drivers” may be counted as “negligent or reckless driving”.
Graham Conway from Select Car Leasing told Yahoo News: “Careless or reckless driving usually carries a fixed fine of £100 and three points on your driving licence.”
“In more serious cases, drivers have to go to court, where they face higher penalties.”
“It all boils down to whether your driving is ‘below the standard expected of a competent and careful driver’.
“Running a roundabout – or ‘abusing lanes to gain an advantage over other drivers’ – could easily fall into this category.”
This comes after Jobbertok posted a video of the same controversial move – but viewers spotted an obvious mistake.
Elsewhere, a woman shared how she got fed up with neighbors parking on her property — and successfully plotted her “little” revenge.
The Reddit user, who doesn’t drive, had allowed her neighbor to use her parking lot for her vehicles.
