A DRIVER has divided opinion with a car "hack" to skip traffic on busy junctions.
Sitting in traffic has to be one of the most boring parts of driving, which is why some road users have come up with smart solutions.
Posting on TikTok under the username 'Danny Tower', one motorist revealed his easy method to beat the rush.
Filming just after he claimed to "skip a queue really quickly" Danny explained exactly how the hack worked.
He said: "If you are going to a retail park for example and its chock-a-block there's usually a roundabout with two lanes.
"One lane is usually full but the other is not too bad.

"You should drive as if you're not going into the retail park, go in the clear lane and when you get to the roundabout go all the way round and just cut through."
By exiting onto the turning you wanted to take in the first place, Danny said that the method would save you "a lot of time and road rage".
While it's not illegal to make your way all the way around a roundabout to avoid traffic, it's perhaps not in the spirit of good natured driving.
Using the application of the roundabout "slingshot", Danny claims he was able to drive right past a whole queue of cars also wanting to head in the same direction as him.

As always TikTokers were quick to take to the comments section to weigh in with their opinions.
Some believed that the hack was not feasible and not good manners.
One said: "Good luck getting let in.
"I would always feel a bit twatty doing it if it’s a small roundabout and people can see."
While others praised the quick thinking of the driving hack.
"Slingshot I do it all the time," said one.
While another wrote: "Yeah I do this all the time, people are sheep."
It comes as one driver previously used the self-titled "slingshot" move around a roundabout to access the supermarket exit.
The move let him jump in front of the waiting queue in the approaching left lane.
The dash cam of the shameless driver captured the moment he skipped traffic with ease.
