Viral video: One police officer was caught on camera in an embarrassing situation

The car continues to creep backwards

The video shows him walking up to the car in front and leaning into the front window of the car.

Filmed from his police car dash cam, the car in front appears to be driving away.

On closer inspection, it is actually the police car rolling backwards due to the handbrake not being on.

The car continues to creep backwards, with the police officer none the wiser.

It is only when it gets to a junction with traffic lights, some way down the road that the police officer notices and runs towards it.

He then manages to stop it and drive it forwards again to the side of the road.

Thankfully the red lights are shown at the junction and no one was hurt.

The video has since had over 448,000 views on Imgur, and has amused online users.
