Driver arrested for using feet to brake

A US driver has been arrested for using his feet to stop his car, leading to him crashing into four vehicles after his brakes failed.

A US man has been arrested for using his feet as a brake while driving, resulting in him hitting four cars.

The roofer, whose brakes had failed, was charged with reckless driving after the incident, which resembled fictional TV character Fred Flintstone, who used to drive his vehicle and stop it by using his
feet in cartoon ‘The Flintstones’.

Deputy Chief James Berlin said in a statement the 24-year-old driver – who had a suspended licence at the time – "will face a judge in September, to explain his moronic decision making".

Officials explained the Fred Flintstone wannabe was completely sober and just "overly tired".
