VIDEO: Daredevils ride trikes down world's steepest street

DAREDEVILS have taken on the steepest street in the world, riding drift trikes down Dunedin's Baldwin St in New Zealand.

A group of thrillseekers posted a video on social media yesterday showing the young men riding trikes at high speed down the hill.

Wearing helmets and gloves, they finally slid to a stop at the end of the street.

Dunedin police were unable to comment last night but a spokesman said he would refer the reports to Southern District road policing manager Senior Sergeant Steve Larking.
