AN E-SCOOTER rider has been blasted after gobsmacked passers-by spotted him dragging a PRAM down a road while speeding along.
Phyllis Smith, 19, was walking home from work when she spotted the daredevil riding whizzing down the A117.
The man held onto the scooter’s handlebars in one hand and the pram in the other as cars zoomed past in Newham, East London.
Baffled bystanders speculated that the man was a dad and he was using his scooter as a speedy way to get his baby home.
But, when Phyllis posted her recording of the incident online, others said the pram was empty.
They speculated that it was recently bought second hand.
Sales assistant Phyllis claims the bloke continued down the road as other onlookers watched on with concern.
She said: “For some weird reason, he was on the road. I don’t know why.
“I was walking home from work and there was literally a guy on a scooter using his one hand to push the pram. He was just scootering across.
“Anyone in the area would know that road leads to the A13 so it actually leads to a motorway or if you carry on straight, you’re in a bus lane.

“In those circumstances, I was so confused as to why he did that. He just carried on down the road.
“He was just going straight ahead. He was in the bus lane the whole time.
“The whole thing is just not safe. It was an interesting sight to say the least.
“It’s not something you see on a regular basis. It made me feel concerned.”
Social sciences student Phyllis claims she then showed the footage to her parents who were equally as “shocked” as the presumed dad or dad-to-be even appeared to be dragging the pushchair by its hood.
Phyllis added: “I had to zoom in to film him.
“People were just looking. I was looking at people like ‘are you seeing what I’m seeing?’.
“He’s not even holding the handle of the pram – he’s holding the hood area.
“I’m going to assume from what the comments are suggesting that he might have bought it online for collection.
“On TikTok, some people were saying maybe there wasn’t a baby in the pram, but the point isn’t the baby, the point is why is he using a pram while riding an electric scooter on a main road?
“Sadly I was unable to make out whether it was bag or a blanket [in the pram], but from my memory it looked a blanket of some sort.”
