A WHEELCHAIR user has been filmed speeding through cars on a busy Spanish road.

In a video that has since gone viral, the disabled man can be seen building up speed in the bus lane before weaving through the traffic on the Barcelona street.

A nearby motorcyclist, intrigued by his Formula One abilities, pulled out his phone to capture the speedster on film.

A police spokesperson said:

“We are aware of this incident but unfortunately there were no police officers or traffic police there at the time to tell the person to slow down,

“It is definitely illegal to ride a wheelchair in such a dangerous way, putting the safety of other road users, as well as yourself, at risk.”

Disability scooters can use the road only when there is no safe sidewalk.

Most can reach maximum speeds of around 8km/h but some can reach around 24.
