This is the moment a reckless Royal Mail driver decided it was clever to mount the pavement and drive along it at speed rather than wait for a bin collection lorry to finish its work.

The alarming video was posted by Crawley Borough Council on their twitter page.

Having already passed the lorry and a waiting car the driver doesn’t pull back onto the road but stays on the path all the way to the junction.

The council has posted numerous videos recorded by the vehicles onboard cameras highlighting dangers that drivers are imposing on pedestrians.

A Royal Mail spokesperson:

“We expect the highest standards of behaviour from our people while out on deliveries and collections.

Royal Mail is investigating this matter as a matter of urgency and the appropriate action will be taken in this case.”

Ali was given a four-year prison sentence in a young offenders institute, which includes the activation of a suspended sentence of a year.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Karen Young said:

“We welcome the sentence the courts have given to Ali and hope this shows the severity of his actions.

“Issues with drugs can have a large effect on the immediate community and we are dedicated to tackling this behaviour. On the day Ali was arrested, we were out conducting foot patrols and the diligent officers spotted Ali acting suspiciously in the area.

“Our work around drugs will continue in the area to ensure those involved are disrupted and brought to justice.”
