SAARLOUIS, Germany, June 28 (UPI) -- A bad driver who ended up with a wheel going over a stair at a German park doubled-down on his bad decision making and drove down the steps.

A video posted to Facebook by Bjorn Knorst shows a driver at Ravelin V park in Saarlouis with one wheel over the edge of a steep staircase.

The driver takes a moment to decide how to address the situation and apparently decides to try going down the stairs rather than reversing back onto flat ground.

The car bounces violently down the steep steps but appears still able to drive at the bottom.

Reports indicate the driver was a 79-year-old man who ignored rainfall warnings in the area and his car slid on the slippery surface to end up in its precarious position at the start of the video. Damage to the car will reportedly cost several thousand dollars to repair.
