Most of us walk down the stairs, but this Uber driver found a very unconventional way of tackling a staircase – with his car.

Early on Monday morning, it was reported that an Uber driver had made a very good attempt of driving down a set of stairs in Bondi Beach in Sydney.

The Police received a call that the black Audi was perched at the top of a set of stairs leading down to a shopping complex on Hall Street.

It was supposedly a mega lapse of judgement that landed the driver in this unfortunate pickle. He had confused the entry to the stairs as a driveway and it was a bit too late by the time he realised his error.

“All the wheels were off the floor so he couldn’t reverse. He was just flustered,” witness Oscar Fowler told 9 News.

The car remained on top of the stairs until a tow truck took it away.

The police have confirmed that no charges would be laid against the driver.

  • Oops, a big mistake!


  • Oh dear! I guess these things happen, and they can happen to the best of us :)


  • Super embarrassing for the driver. Lucky there was nobody on the escalator too. It would have stopped suddenly and no doubt somebody would been injured. I’m surprised the Police didn’t charge him though. Not only is the underneath of the car damaged towing fees are expensive.


  • Whoops. That’s a pretty embarrassing mistake.


  • Oh dear! Glad noone was hurt…maybe just the drivers ego a bit!


  • Scary experience – lucky that no one was hurt!


  • oh my! that’s a bit scary! thank god no one’s hurt!


  • Lucky there were no passengers in the car. What scary experience.
