  • Police bodycam footage captured the bizarre traffic stop in  Indooroopilly, QLD
  • Driver was issued a defect notice for the gaming wheel and other faults
  • There has been a major south east Queensland police crackdown on hoons 
  • One offender was seen doing a burn-out that caused his vehicle to catch fire 

A motorist has been busted using a PlayStation steering wheel controller to steer his vehicle down a busy Queensland street.

Police video reveals the moment a gob-smacked police officer realises the yellow car he has stopped for inspection in the inner west Brisbane suburb of Indooroopilly doesn’t have standard steering equipment.

‘Is that steering wheel actually a steering wheel from a gaming computer?’ the officer asks.

Initially the officer explained to the driver he had been pulled over for a vehicle inspection with the first obvious problem being how far the tires stick out from the wheels.   

‘The vehicle track, my God!’ the officer exclaims.

‘How far is it sticking out?’

After finding further faults the officer issues a major defect notice to get it immediately off the road.

The car was also found to also have tires sticking out too far from the wheel among other safety defects

The officer says the notice is ‘for the safety issues and the fact you are using a gaming steering wheel and your seatbelts don’t retract and also the cut bonnet structure.’ 

He also discovered fitted air horns, which are illegal. 

The traffic stop was part of a major crackdown on hoons which has been conducted across south east Queensland in recent weeks.

‘They had to pull him out of the vehicle quickly.
