If you’re planning on driving anywhere this weekend perhaps you’d better not watch this (or take notes to know what to watch out for!). Otherwise, sit back and watch over seven minutes of close calls, crazy antics and some pretty harrowing crashes taken from primarily China and Taiwan.
No blood or death though, so no fears queasy-stomached readers!
We’re certainly not implying that Asians drivers are worse than any other, especially considering road rage in the west is so bad it’s even considered a medical disorder, but those who have lived in the east know that driving here has a certain… flavor to it that is unlike anywhere else in the world.
Highlights in this particular video definitely include:
- 46s: The mundane background of a language learning tape makes a nice juxtaposition.
- 4m16s: Seems as good of a place as any other for a nap (hint, it’s not a person)
- 4m47s: That’s a cop on the hood of an illegal taxi in Chengdu! Kudos to that bus driver!
- 5m56s & 6m23s: Check out the shirt in the rear-view mirror, this guy’s had a rough day.
