Reckless driver backs up on busy road to steal peaches

WATCH as a reckless driver in China backs up on a busy highway - to steal peaches, and unsurprisingly later gets his licence revoked.

Police released footage showing the driver backing up and making a U-turn as he headed for an orchard, before stopping on the emergency lane.

Then, together with two passengers, the driver climbed over a fence into the orchard and returned with a large bag of peaches.

When he was stopped by police the driver tried to justify his peach pickings, saying it wasn’t illegal.

However, he was fined for his reckless driving and had his licence revoked.
