Just when you thought you’d seen it all, something new is spotted out on the road in China.
This time its a couple on a motorbike, a blind man and his wife. The twist is that the blind man is the one who’s in the driver’s seat.
The couple were spotted by a pair of guys driving around Yichun city in Jiangxi province. The guys slow down to film as the motorcycle rolls steadily forward, the man driving admirably considering his lack of sight and the woman shouting directions from behind. Soon, the motorcycle pulls off the road and comes to a comfortable stop outside a building. It’s like they’ve done this kind of thing before?
Well, turns out, they have. Tencent reports that local police tracked down the blind man in the video earlier this week. He works at a massage parlor in the city, but goes back to his hometown each month to visit his mom.
To save money on bus fare, sometimes he just takes the motorcycle for a spin. He says that usually he wears shades so other drivers won’t be alarmed.
Watch the video below:
And count that as another reason that China’s elevated bus concept might just be a bad idea.
