On Indian roads, one can often witness bizarre incidents of people driving. One such incident has gone viral on Twitter, with user Ramandeep Singh Hora posting a video of six people sharing a scooter. Captioning the post “Heights of Fukra Panti 6 people on one scooter”, the video shows one person on the shoulders of another sharing the scooter seat.

The handle of the traffic police even asked for “the exact location details for further action” to which the user responded “Near Star Bazaar Andheri West”.
The internet was, however, quick to react with several users commenting about how unsafe this was. There were some funny comments however with user @fotobata writing, “I’m wondering what if they had a car, how many would have fit in then.. any guesses???”

Another user @neeleshp referring to the scooter’s brand said, “@Honda is giving solid competition to @TataMotors_Cars#Nano. Affordable family transport @70k.”

In India the traffic norms only allow one driver along with a pillion rider on a two-wheeler, but this rule is often broken. People driving on roads are quite used to seeing out of the ordinary incidents. One such incident was highlighted by industrialist Anand Mahindra who tweeted a video of a young man holding a bunch of clothes on his head using his hands while riding a bicycle earlier this year.
