    An electric scooter rider caused Brussels drivers distress on Sunday after choosing to ride through a car only tunnel in the city.

    In footage posted on Facebook, an electric scooter is seen riding through the Porte de Halle tunnel in Brussels, causing surprised drivers to swerve to avoid hitting him.

    The two-lane tunnel has a maximum speed limit of 50 km/h, well above the 25 km/h maximum speed limit on an e-scooter. It is for this reason, as well as others, that driving an electric scooter in the Brussels tunnels is strictly prohibited.

    The incident – recorded on a dash-cam – was shared on the Facebook page Alertes Contrôles De Police – Infos Bruxelles.
