Pensioner in road rug incident
The man - believed to be in his 70s - blocked the whole road as he trundled at slow speed through the town of Wincanton in Somerset.
A 39-second clip of the escapade was filmed by 20-year-old witness Gary McKenna, who was stuck in a car behind the man.
Mr McKenna, who posted the footage on YouTube, said: "I think at times traffic coming the other way could have hit him."
At one stage the pensioner stopped to allow queuing cars to pass him.
