This is the moment a boozed up dad wrecks the family car and also damages other vehicles and property after attempting to show his daughter how to park properly.

The dad, surnamed Zhang, had allowed his daughter to drive his Toyota home because he had had a few drinks during their family lunch.

But he clearly got frustrated when the young woman, still a learner driver, accidentally touched a tree while in front of the car while attempting to reverse.

As the other family members climbed out and she stepped out of the vehicle to see if the car had been damaged, her dad jumped in behind the wheel to show how it was done, and proceeded to demolish not only his own vehicle but those of his neighbours and the tree.

The incident took place in the town of Hongqi in Zhuhai City in South China’s Guangdong Province on 24th February and left the car wrecked and could have ended up even worse after he narrowly avoided running over members of his family.

Zhang, who was blind drunk, decides to take over and tries to show his little girl how to parallel park.

The video also shows the moment Zhang’s daughter walking behind the silver Toyota is almost run over with the two other female family members also fleeing to safety. 

The footage also shows the man driving round in circles smashing into rubbish bins and leaving tyre marks on the ground. It also smashes into two other parked cars.

A confused Zhang eventually manages to stop the now destroyed Toyota and climbs out the driver’s seat looking dazed.

Zhuhai police said Zhang tested well over the drink-driving limit which probably explains why he was unable to say how he lost control of the car and nearly ran over his daughter.

For drink-driving and fleeing the scene of the accident, the police fined him 4,000 RMB (455 GBP) and gave him 24 demerit points – enough to make him lose his licence twice over.

The punishment includes a six-month driving ban as well as 15 days of administrative detention, which he will serve at his nearest police station.
