Topic tags/keywords: video stupidity blind

This is absolute INSANITY! Do these people even LOOK before they make their Move? Defensive Driving? What’s that?

There is also NO Signage or Traffic Lights that I can see!

I think the “Driving School For The Blind” must be around here somewhere!

WARNING: There are some pretty gruesome scenes in this video. Some of these people could NOT have survived their Accidents!

We spent a month in India in 2016 and I can confirm, traffic is crazy!!!! Actually this intersection they are showing is fairly tame. People would drive the wrong way on a crowded divided highways to get to a closer turn to cross over rather than going with traffic and doing a U-turn farther down the road! Families of 5 on a single motor scooter, having to stop to let herds of goats, sheep, etc cross let alone dodging the cows that roam everywhere and will just lay down on the road to take a rest. Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia weren’t much better. If you ever go (Vietnam is highly recommended) Hire a driver. Do not, repeat, do not drive yourself

I found it very entertaining. Watch them all the time with my kids as instruction video of how NOT to drive what happens when you drive stupid.

I found it quite sad… it captured the last moments of life for many of them.

Having been to New Delhi to visit my wife’s parents, I can tell you firsthand that traffic and the driving habits in India are pretty shocking to Americans. How many times have I seen a guy driving a motorcycle with his wife on the back, holding a child in each arm and one sandwiched between the two adults? Add to this that the ONLY person wearing a helmet was the driver, it makes for some very scary stuff. These guys usually like to go around traffic waiting at a light by driving on the sidewalk, scattering pedestrians and homeless individuals in their paths.
Children who are fortunate enough to go to school are very often transported standing upright in farm wagons pulled by tractors….yes, in NEW DELHI, the Capital city !!! One of the most disturbing things I saw was an ambulance (a RARE sight in India anyway) which had lights flashing and siren blaring, while COMPLETELY gridlocked on all sides, with NONE of the adjacent drivers giving ANY thought letting the ambulance through. It’s really sad and shameful.

lol, sounds like one of those sh….hole countries someone was talking about.

going to what some consider 3rd world, throw out any assemblance of driving or living rules, that an American would know and adhere to, doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.

We are spoiled and rightfully so, we earned it, or at least several generations ago earned it for us.

the world certainly is a crazy place, and if i see it right, some of it is showing up in the ole USA, maybe time to right the ship some.

happy tuesday

and you are welcome, and the name is Knockonit, lol, its an old term, meaning step on it,
When i was young and learning the cowboy way, i raced team horse in a wagon at rodeos, and in lieu of cussing at the four legged beasts, KNOCKONIT was the term used.
got it from my old grandfather, a pioneer in early ranching in arizona.

beautiful day here in arizona, time for a nap in the hammock

Thank You Mr. Knockout.
