Driver’s Fred Flintstone Braking Technique Results in Multiple Crashes [VIDEO]

Man breaks like Fred Flintstone
Macomb Daily

A Georgia man was aware that his pickup truck had no functional brakes when he took it for  a drive Wednesday afternoon. But the 24-year-old was under the mistaken — and likely Saturday morning cartoon-influenced — impression he could just stop the vehicle by sticking his foot out the door and dragging it across the pavement, Fred Flinstone-style.

Four collisions and one blown red light later, he learned this is not the case. “This guy is no rocket scientist,” explained Roseville Deputy Chief James Berlin.

The man, whose name hasn’t been released because he has yet to arraigned, was jailed on multiple vehicular violations. Check out his comic attempt at cartoon driving below.
