Wheel SceneThe Viral Rollerblading Video that FOOLED the World
from Wheel Scene on 12 Apr 2023

Back in 2011, Loco Skates and Sam Tuffnell achieved international attention when they released a video of him breaking the speed limit and setting off a speed camera on inline skates on a British road. The whole thing was documented by Sim Warren and went viral, clocking up over 457,000 views and gaining the attention of local, national and international news outlets.Some of the biggest newspapers in the world featured the story, the pair ended up appearing on BBC Radio and there were even people campaigning to have them arrested for being so reckless and intentionally breaking the law. It’s one hell of a story! Re-uploaded without the the clip of Jack Tierney being hit by a car door, which YouTube didn’t like and removed the original.
