Ingenious life hacks and innovative easy solutions always go viral on social media, but one driver's answer to broken windscreen wipers is slightly different.

A TikTok video posted by Stephenkeeling9 has received mixed reactions, with people split over how dangerous the man's life hack was.

The clip filmed from the passenger seat of a lorry shows the driver in a small blue car using two pieces of string to pull his faulty windscreen wipers from side to side in the rain.

The string was attached to the wipers and fed through a small opening in each of the front windows, and the man was tugging at the rope while still managing to drive his car at speed, reports the Mirror.

It goes without saying that the method should not be repeated and the DIY attempt could have caused the driver to have a serious accident, and the clip racked up 2,000 comments as people were left stunned.

One commenter said: “I’m crying so hard from laughing.”

Another posted: “I’M DYING.”

While a third said: “That’s how stable my life is at the moment.”

It seems the risky method isn’t uncommon either, as several commenters also revealed they’d used similar tactics when faced with the same issue.

One person said: “I did this hanging out a moving double-decker bus on the motorway to get a school trip back home on time.”

While a second wrote: “Exactly the same thing happened to me on New Year’s Eve on the millennium.”

And another left a comment which read: “Literally me eight months ago! And before the Karens start – my motor for wipers gave up and breakdown wouldn’t cover me as it was the wipers.”

Others simply wondered how the car passed its MOT, while several people tagged their friends and stated the quick fix was something they’d do themselves.
