A man has been banned from driving for 15 months after he was filmed doing these ‘donuts’ the wrong way around a roundabout.

The actions of Daniel Bassett, 26, were branded a ‘danger to the public’.

he was filmed driving at high speeds around a roundabout in Swindon, Wiltshire, on May 7.

In the video his car is seen skidding around the roundabout, which thankfully appears to be deserted, while chucking out smoke from its tyres while stunned pedestrians look on.

At one point the person filming is heard muttering that the driver is going to ruin his car’s tyres.

Bassett was banned from driving for 15 months, will have to take an extended driving test and must carry out 200 hours of unpaid community service work thanks to the stunt.

He plead guilty to dangerous driving at Swindon Magistrates Court yesterday.

Wiltshire Police Assistant Chief Constable Deb Smith said: ‘We welcome the sentence handed down to Bassett, his actions represented severely reckless behaviour and clear danger to those present and the wider public.

‘Op Staysail remains focussed on relentlessly pursuing those who are responsible for creating extremely dangerous situations on our roads whilst participating in disruptive car meets, we will continue to seek the strongest possible sanctions in such cases.’
