A dog behind the wheel of a car driving? In Port St. Lucie, Florida a black Labrador retriever accidentally shifted his owner’s car into reverse and drove around in circles for an hour until the police arrived. Fortunately, the worst that happened was the car backing into the neighbor’s mailbox.

According to WpbfNews, a neighborhood woman couldn’t figure out why anyone would be driving in circles in reverse on the cul-de-sac.  And then she thought she saw a dog driving and called the police.

When authorities arrived, accompanied by the fire department, everyone momentarily stood in amazement. It wasn’t until the dog named Max hit some trash cans and the mailbox did the vehicle slow down enough for officers to unlock the door and stop the 2003 Mercury Sable.

The owner of the vehicle had left his car running when he accidentally made a wrong turn and as he left his car to check on something, the dog shifted gears.

There was barely any property damage and no one was hurt. No charges have been pressed against Max or his human.

Check out the video. Do you agree Max should have a driver’s license?
