Fed up with their neighbor's antics, people who have been driven round the bend by a boy racer's inconsiderate driving have taken matters into their own hands.
They hoisted 24-year-old Zbigniew Filo's car into a willow tree in Lubczyna, Poland, shaming him into promising to change the way he drives.
Locals are keeping tight-lipped over who put the Ford Escort into the tree, but have admitted that one of the villager's mobile cranes was borrowed to carry out the mission under the cover of darkness.
Police spokesman Marta Pierko said: 'We received a call from a man saying his car was stuck in a tree, and that his neighbours had put it there.
'After inspecting the site we instructed him to remove it from the tree,' she added.
One local added: 'Whoever, or whatever it was, it’s probably a good thing as he was a dangerous driver and could have killed someone.
'Perhaps he’ll think twice about his hair-raising driving and about getting a license or who knows where his next car might end up?'
Now shamefaced Filo has promised to change his driving style.
'I get the message, but I think it was a bit harsh,' he said.
