Hilarious video shows the moment a worker parks his van behind a police speed camera vehicle – and dances across the road.

The cheeky motorist decided to take revenge on officers trying to catch speeders in Limerick, Ireland.

The video shows him park as close as possible to the back of the police van, blocking its cameras, and then do a celebratory jig as he crosses the road.

The stunt was dreamed up by Duggie Roche, 34, from Kerry, and Conor Harnett, 30, from Limerick, and filmed from a shop on the opposite side of the road.

Speaking of the idea, Connor, who works with Duggie at C&R Hydraulics, said: “It’s was a spur of the moment thing. We decided to do it and I took the phone out and recorded it.”

Some social media users were praising the pranksters for their work.
