Default Nutjob from Bhatinda drives his car...in REVERSE

We really get all types in India, don't we? The things people will do for publicity. Seriously, how stupid. His gearbox has 4 ratios for reverse, and a single for moving forward. The way he uses his car, it's a rare combination of front wheel drive, rear-mounted engine and rear wheel steering . What's worse, while being a public nuisance, he further annoys others with an ambulance siren

Claims he now suffers from neck & back problems. Duh!

I think the RTO should give him a final warning. If he continues driving in reverse, just cancel his licence.

Look at the spelling of Champion.
What a nutcase. He needs to be locked up for causing public nuisance and the keys thrown into the ocean.

Looks like some kind of mental fetish. The video says the 'authorities' have given him special permission to drive this way, WHAT sone pe suhaga.

Your field of view is so limited while you are reversing, you can't see what's coming on the extreme left of your vision. Someone is going to get hurt real bad if this goes on.

He appears demented! He says once his car was stuck in the reverse gear and he drove to his house in reverse. He felt confident and since then he got this idea.
WHY Mr Anderson WHY??

And how can a fool like him or for that matter any non ambulance car is allowed to set ambulance siren? It happens only in India.

How can the state Government issue him "special permission" to continue driving like this in public roads?

If you also notice the escort/pilot car, white zen has black tints which again is illegal.
This guy is no notjob but an A-grade Lunatic

....and the guy has a "reverse driving academy too" as seen in the picture. No wonder the academy must also be having it's required approvals and affiliations in place, facilitated by our great government.

Well the way this Padmin driver is going in reverse looks like he has some safety sense. He is doing an insane act in a sane way!

Now see another Fiat driver! Doing reverse in narrow hill roads and hair pin bends! Must admit he is a skillful driver.



And now the most epic one! Get ready to get few of your heart beats skipped! I admit this mad guy is skillful but the way he did in busy street is really risky and definitely deserves some punishment! He had few close shaves !

Uff !. We get all kinds of such morons, and all this for some cheap publicity and to make sure there are enough and more people who can "Talk" about them. And here, we end up doing precisely that and give these guys more publicity.
Seriously, that guy should be booked for creating nuisance !.

Its nutcases like these that get all the attention, and eventually, evolve policy. He is a serial offender and the government has gone ahead and honoured him as a special case, instead of seizing his licence, denying permanent licence, and incarcerating him.

Is he the only nutcase in the story or are the officials who give him the special permissions, equal idiots, if not more.

The word Incredible is such a pun when used together with India!

Red face Re: Nutjob from Bhatinda drives his car...in REVERSE

Urgent steps to be taken by Punjab road authorities
1) Cancel the licence of this stupid person.
2) Sack those people who gave him special permission.

Does that person do everything in reverse? Just wondering....

I think its one of those loop holes. Do we have any rules in MV Act specific to reverse driving? This special permission he is talking about sounds bogus.

"doing something what no one has done before" !!!
Really? Come on man. Do something else.
Bhatinda guy. Open a good Punjabi place.

BTW what about his neck? I can take pity with what the poor neck is putting up with unless he has got any special skills to reverse it too?

Notwithstanding the (il)legality of what he is doing, and the consequent justified remonstrances from our esteemed members; I was just wondering, why could he not have gone about this, using a combination of Mirrors and Rear View Camera, like we all use on a regular basis?
Surely, that would have helped keep his neck straight, while giving him a much better view of the road and obstructions behind, than sticking his neck out like a Canine!
