There’s not much worse than being stuck behind a slow moving vehicle. Especially one that’s clearly hauling more than they should be, causing everyone else to have to go around. But at the front of this traffic tie-up in this video from Slovenia, there is some impressive towing power despite the slow speed.
Automakers might try and tell you that you need a one-tonne truck to pull your trailer, and they might brag about how much their smaller trucks will pull, but the man in this video doesn’t care about marketing hype. He can tow a car just by moving his feet.
That’s right, the reason for the traffic tie-up is an ambitious cyclist. The man on the bicycle is towing a whole car behind him, using what looks like a pallet jack to lift the drive wheels up off the ground.
The car he’s towing is a French-built Axiam 500, and a look at some reviews for the car shows why he might be towing it. The 500 is licensed as a four-wheel motorcycle, not a car, and it’s not exactly known for reliability.
While the pair is making decent progress, even up the slight hill, things could get a little hairy on the way down the other side. Hopefully, the cyclist has good brakes. Or good insurance.
