YouTube footage of incident in Japan gets more than 2 million views

Footage showing a bike cop in Japan chasing after a Lamborghini Huracan to issue the driver a ticket has gone viral since being posted to YouTube last month.

The officer, riding a bike that wouldn't look out of place on a quick trip to the shops, complete with front basket, leapt into action after the driver apparently ignored a traffic signal.

After catching up with the £180,000 supercar, the office told the driver to pull over, then knelt down to be at eye level with the motorist as he wrote out the ticket,

At least the officer didn't attempt to ride his bicycle over the Lamborghini - unlike a BMX rider in Portland, Oregon who did just that in 2015 when he spotted Italian cars parked outside a local restaurant.
