Things get a little more interesting when a boat jets down the canal alongside the road.
But it all goes from bad to worse when the 4×4 swings around a narrow corner and knocks a parked car into the water.
The incredible pursuit was captured by a Brit living in Amsterdam.
It was a case of right place, right time for Bryony who filmed the video from the window of her house, close to the city’s infamous red light district.
It all seems too good to be true. And in fact it is.
