Footage has emerged of a scooter rider who even dodged cops as he was filmed doing 60 mph travelling the wrong way down a motorway for 37 miles.
The suspect, surnamed Huang, 43, stunned drivers on 13th February when he sped past countless vehicles in the fast lane of Taiwan’s National Freeway 3 over the township of Mingjian in Taiwan’s central Nantou County.

Footage from the motorway, which spans the island north to south, shows Huang’s 125cc Kymco scooter hugging the central crash barrier and appearing to ignore all passing cars.
According to officer with the National Highway Police Bureau who eventually stopped the suspect, Huang clipped four cars during the stunt, which finally ended after roughly 60 kilometres (37 miles).
Officers say Huang avoided three checkpoints and was finally stopped on the fourth attempt, after he swerved to avoid the cops and hit the concrete central reservation, falling off his scooter and breaking his left arm.
Upon arrest, Huang claimed he had been suffering from an episode of epilepsy, a diagnosis later confirmed by doctors at Kuang Tien General Hospital.
Epilepsy, as well as seizures, can also include symptoms such as temporary confusion, loss of consciousness or awareness, and psychic symptoms such as anxiety, fear or deja vu, among others.
He is to undergo surgery for his fractured left arm, and it is still unclear how his medical diagnosis will affect the consequences of his offence.
