This footage from the United States shows an SUV driver who attempted to drive over a guardrail in a bid to skip heavy traffic, end up stuck and embarrassed.

The video (unfortunately filmed in vertical format) was captured somewhere in St. Louis, Missouri.

It shows the white Chevrolet Tahoe stranded on a guardrail after the impatient driver tried to drive over it, seemingly in an effort to bypass heavy traffic.

Watch the footage above, which comes complete with colourful commentary from the uploader…
