A Coast man captured the unbelievable moment on his dashcam and posted the clip to the social media, where hundreds of residents shared in the man's surprise.

One woman said it wasn't the first time she had seen a car on the footpath.

"Unbelievable isn't it - I saw this happen just after the new bridge opened in 2009," she said.

"I don't even get how it's possible," another wrote.

Some stated the driver would have had to enter the bridge from a adjoining service road.

"This bloke would have had to drive the entire service road under the bridge just to be able to get onto the footpath," one lady said.

"Not surprised, everyone on the Coast has no idea what they are doing on the road," another wrote.

One man joked that the driver must have been looking for the quickest route to the pub.

"Just in case you were wondering what the quickest way to the Maroochy Bridge Hotel was from Pacific Paradise," he said.
