This video has been around for a while on Youtube but it remains entertaining to watch nevertheless.
No traffic lights, no lanes…. no accidents either though!
Lots of people wonder whether this was shot in the Phillipines or in India, most people seem to think that this is India. Some people also say that the video has been ‘sped up’ to make it look more crazy – but still, even if one slows it down somewhat it still seems an insane way to drive.
A friend of mine said that her dad drove a car like this in India – apparently every driver is responsible for what happens in front and to the right of the car – anything else is free game!
Not sure if this is true though, it would simplify road rules somewhat but frankly I really don’t know whether my nerves would be able to stand it.
The problem is that South African taxis would probably conveniently forget about the ‘in front and to the right rule’ in any case and just go for the ‘anything goes’ rule!
