This taxi driver was caught on camera driving down the pavement in what looks like a bid to avoid a traffic jam.

The driver, believed to be from a Leeds firm, appears on screen after mounting the kerb - before motoring along the pavement.

And an unwitting pedestrian seen walking along wearing what appears to be headphones is forced to step into the road to avoid him.

The video was captured at 4.50pm last Tuesday by dashcam user Richard Broadbent.

He was waiting in traffic in Elland Road near Leeds United's football ground.

Richard shared the video on YouTube, saying: "Thankfully this guy was awake enough to get off the pavement."
