A male driver reverses his Vauxhall Astra from a tow truck Waltham Forest Council/YouTube A man who angrily reversed a car off a tow truck astonishingly without writing the thing off has been criticised by a council for his extremely dangerous manoeuvre. The driver tried to remove the silver Vauxhall Astra from the grip of a parking enforcement firm by starting the engine of the car and simply reversing it off the back of the truck as it hadnt yet been secured. See the video below In the footage he can be seen storming up to the vehicle which had been parked illegally on a street in Waltham Forest east London before driving it off in an effort that appears to have succeeded as the car simply bounces back into action. Waltham Forest Councillor Clyde Loakes said: The man had an utter disregard for anyone on the street and what he did was extremely dangerous. You can see kids and other members of the public milling around in the foreground of the video and thank goodness none of them were in the immediate vicinity or he could have killed someone. The incident happened at roughly 8am on 29 August on Hazelwood Road in Walthamstow and was captured on film by parking enforcement officers.
