- A video went viral as it revealed a traffic officer who was unable to parallel park
- Despite having the assistance of another officer, the female cop went back and forth, yet still couldn't get it right
- South Africans slammed the cop as traffic officers are meant to set the example
A traffic officer went viral for all the wrong reasons after a hilarious video was shared via social media.
Traffic cops are guardians of our road safety and often seen as the experts in rules of the road.
The irony was therefore not lost on South Africans when a cop botched her attempt at parallel parking.
The footage reveals how the female officer goes back and forth in her dismal attempt at getting her vehicle in the parking bay.
Strangely enough, she had the assistance of another traffic cop, yet still seemed out of her depth.
Ferdi Krumm shared the comical video via Facebook and Briefly.co.za noted that it's been viewed nearly 100 000 times within 24 hours.
Hlubikazi MaRhadebe Marawu couldn't hide her disbelief:
"A whole Traffic Cop."
Zilo Zwane added,
Alisdair Wolfen Mzitshwa shared an interesting theory:
"This is why they dont like us, we drive better than them."
Ebrahiem Salie asked a valid question:
"Someone help me understand how it took 2 cops to try and park one car and still get it wrong, but when you make one mistake when you pass out, you fail."
