It seems that British subjects are either easily alarmed or have forgotten one of the greatest action movies of Mel Gibson’s career, as evidenced by an armed response to a vehicle resembling a car from the “Mad Max” films.

An apocalyptic sedan suffering a breakdown near Herefordshire was surrounded by Armed Officer Units on Tuesday, reportedly terrifying the local population.

Interestingly enough, the vehicle has been driving in the area since January, and had only recently aroused suspicion.

Herefordshire Councillor John Harrington posted photos of the car to Facebook, and described the driver as a “Young chap, happy for me to snap away whilst he was on the phone to have the [vehicle towed].”

“He told me it was not a film prop but his ‘daily drive,’’ Harrington wrote. “Absolutely brilliant! I departed when I heard him say the words, ‘Good afternoon officer’ as [a] slightly concerned community copper approached him, who was shortly joined by traffic and…a firearms BMW which past [sic] me as I was going up Dinmore.”

The vehicle featured two replica miniguns, which were mounted on the hood and were determined to be non-functional.

It is unknown if the driver was taken into custody or if the vehicle will be permitted to operate on the road.
