Man takes wheelchair on joyride down interstate

FAIRFIELD, CT (CNN) - This isn't the best way to deal with rising gas prices.

An elderly man drove his electric wheelchair down I-95 in Fairfield, CT on Thursday.

Although cameras caught the driver mostly on the shoulder, authorities believe he did make it onto the highway at one point.

The man wasn't given a ticket. However, police say traveling on a highway on an electric scooter or wheelchair is illegal.
