This is not the set of wheels you expect to see zipping through the city streets.

A man in a wheelchair was recently caught on camera riding pretty darned fast down a busy street in Barcelona, zipping along like he’s rushing to get to work before the boss realizes he’s late.

The driver probably won’t be prosecuted or cited because, well, he was in a wheelchair. "We've only seen the video on YouTube," a police spokesman said. "We didn't see it as it happened and so we haven't been able to do anything. The man in the wheelchair remains unidentified as it's hard to identify someone in a wheelchair in a video. It isn't like a car where you have a number plate."

Authorities also say the video may actually be a hoax – because, apparently – brace yourself – sometimes that happens online. Who knew, right?
