THIS is the shocking moment a driver pretended to be a cop by flashing blue and red lights in the back of his car to intimidate another vehicle.
Dashcam footage caught the Toyota Corolla suddenly veering into the right hand lane in front of another car during the Sydney rush hour.
The dashcam driver slammed on his horn before the Corolla slowed down and started flashing blue and red police lights from the back window.
The Corolla sped off from the scene after the illegal stunt.
The footage was shared on YouTube channel Scott’s Car Cameras – which showcases “crazy driving from Australia And New Zealand”.
Many viewers called for the driver with the “fake lights” to be reported to the cops.
One said: “If the ‘fake lights’ were verified as being fake I hope they were reports to the police.”
Another wrote: “Fake police lights are illegal, I hope they get sprung and fined.”
But others suggested the car might not be fake.
Some said they had seen cops in Sydney “driving Corollas exactly like that, so it may not be fake after all”.
Yet others insisted they had never seen a cop car in the Australian city with the same style of flashing lights.
Meanwhile, one punter searched the number plate of the vehicle, discovering the car was four years old with a 2018 registration.
They joked: “No police department would hang on to their cars for that long.”
Another said: “If it was a real undercover cop the plate would not be easily searched.”
A NSW vehicle standards report said blue and red flashing lights are only allowed on emergency services vehicles, such as police cars and ambulances.
It said: “The use of blue, or blue and red flashing lights is intended to advise other road users that the vehicle displaying them is responding to an emergency situation.
“They must only be used when the vehicle is being used for police operational functions or urgent purposes arising from an accident, fire or other emergency.”
And impersonating a cop can lead to time behind bars, ranging from two to seven years in jail, according to the NSW Crime Act.
