A brazen Mercedes driver sat on a tow truck in a bid to stop his luxury car from being towed away.

The man was filmed sitting on the tray of the truck on Plain Street, near Hyatt Regency, in Perth on Monday morning. 

A photo posted to Facebook page, The Bell Tower Times, showed a police officer arrive at the scene amid the man’s refusal to move out of the way.  

Social media users were quick to make light of the man’s protest by questioning why the owner of a luxury car couldn’t fork out the extra money to pay for the service.

‘When you live a lavish lifestyle on a tight budget,’ one person said.

‘Gotta save the towing fee to be able to afford to service the Merc!’

Another joked: ‘You can take my car but you’ll never take my freeeeedoooomm.’ 

The incident was also described as ‘Perth’s Tiananmen Square’. 

It’s understood the Mercedes was parked in a clearway when the towing incident occurred.

‘The irony of holding up traffic to tow away a car in a clearway with the car owner there,’ one person said.

‘Those tow truck drivers sit on that street like vultures when you leave your car, that sign f***s so many people over, re-word that sign so people can understand it,’ said another.

Another photo showed the Mercedes was eventually loaded up on the towing truck to be removed from the street.  

‘What did he think he was going to achieve?

Did he honestly think the towie was going to not call the police, unhitch the car, apologise profusely and skulk off?’ one person said.
