A CHEEKY music fan has been hailed as a hero for his high-vis vest trick to skip a THREE hour long traffic jam.
Nathan Twamley seamlessly slipped through crowds of cars as he headed home from a concert in Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday – all by pretending to be a traffic warden.
The 27-year-old brazenly waved his pals through the backlog of vehicles, guiding out their car in just 10 minutes after the Dermot Kennedy gig at Malahide Castle.
The lad hatched his plan when he realised other drivers had already been waiting in the queue for hours – his pal Sean Rafferty, 26, coincidentally happened to have a yellow work vest in his book.
So after putting it on, Nathan, from Dublin, started knocking on car windows, asking drivers to make room for a vehicle coming through.
The data technician managed to guide his mates all the way to the front of the queue, where a warden at the event clocked on to what he was doing.

Luckily, the worker saw the funny side of Nathan's scheme and allowed them past.
A video that captured Nathan's cunning shows him sauntering along confidently in front of his friend's car, directing the vehicle alongside a huge queue to their left hand-side.
As one car attempts to pull out in front of them, Nathan is quick to stop the car before waving his friends forward.
In the clip he can be seen looking back to the camera with a cheeky grin in realisation that he's pulled off the move.
