Well, this is bizarre. A 16 year old has been arrested in Melbourne after responding around in his own private vehicle – having decked it out with a full lights and sirens package! He had been spotted a number of times over the past few weeks responding through traffic and was reported to police after people became suspicious of the fully unmarked white appliance carving up traffic under red and blues. Not to mention the 16yr old driver behind the wheel wearing a high vis vest….
He has since been arrested and the vehicle seized.
**UPDATE: It turns out this is not a genuine emergency services vehicle. A 16 year old has been arrested for driving around in a truck modified with police lights and sirens. I could not have predicted this outcome when I posted this footage**Does anyone know what type of emergency vehicle this is? Spotted on Beach Rd in Melbourne.It was a white unmarked truck carving through traffic with lights blazing. Seems odd to me that a truck like this doesn't have safety markings all over it
