A quack getaway! Amazing moment daredevil duck races car down M23 motorway at 60mph

This is the incredible moment a duck was spotted keeping pace with vehicles on a busy motorway.
Roland Bowler, 33, from Strood in Kent, spotted the bird flying along the M23 near Gatwick Airport while sitting in his friend's van on August 19.
Bowler was so shocked to see the duck keep pace with the flow of traffic that he started to record the animal on his mobile p
The bird narrowly dodges a black van and enters the outside lane of the motorway
The duck then travels at a steady 60mph before leaving the motorway again

The Metro reports that Rowland, who described the scene as something like from from Wacky Races, said: ‘It got bored and decided, “France sounds better”. That’s no doubt where it was going.
‘This duck was having a laugh, it wasn’t in trouble. You know when a bird is in trouble because it’s trying to pull away from the motorway. This one was having the time of its life.
‘It didn’t have a care in the world. Some people were saying that the duck was scared, but trust me, that duck wasn’t scared.'
The video was originally shared on social media two weeks ago and received more than 22,000 like ratings and shares. 
Roland, who goes shooting in his spare time, thinks that the duck in the video may have been separated from a group because ducks normally fly in pods.
The average speed that a duck is able to fly at ranges between 40 to 60 mph.
Ducks are capable of maintaining this speed over the course of an 800-mile flight but then have to eat and rest for the next seven days to recover. hone.
