What is it with crazy girls and big cars nowadays? They seem to be the norm when it comes to being a danger out on the road. Also, I'm sorry for your baby nephew and hope he's alright now.

Just at the moment the Innova is about to change lane, the camera car is in his blind spot. Anyway, he is not having the situational awareness.

Also what was the camera car doing? Changing two lanes at a time is a big NO!

A video was posted by Tamil actor Simbhu with his nephew, shockingly the kid was in his lap and I presume he was at the wheel. Looks like, this video was taken in a traffic signal, I hope he didn't drive the car with the kid in his lap

Unfortunately, in our country actors are considered as Gods , I feel as actors one should be responsible and ensure they don't set a bad example to others.

Does the actor know it is a bad habit? If not he has the opportunity to learn only when someone points this out to him.

Another one of those reckless lane switching. Seltos driver seems not concerned about the incoming traffic before switching lane.

He learnt his lesson very quickly, at least for the time being. Using his indicator in his next lane change.

But the problem is, with these kind of mistakes, there may not be a next time !.

He got a bit of instant karma from the truck driver doing what he's just done!

That's nothing! I get a dozen idiots like him everyday on the highway. Pretty common, atleast on TN highways.

New car and his ego of driving a hot CSUV and getting overtaken by you is getting on to his heels.

OT: That song is one of my fav compositions from DSP.

I would stay away from drivers like these, it is very risky pursuing them / following these kind of drivers within close range. I'd rather downshift and overtake them or slowdown and stay little far off from them to avoid emergency / panic braking.

The song was also apt for the scenario, my heart was really beating fast when I saw those stupid lane switching by that Seltos guy.

So true, loved that part of the video, this video should be added in instant karma compilation videos on YouTube.

You can almost sense if the driver behind is driving normally or in a hurry or restless or an idiot or egoistic or sedate etc .

Depending on it, I too either give way or decide on next course of action .

Indian roads are filled with idiots like these. But @120kmph+ the reaction time does get a bit hairy.

Using low beam, when others around you high beam proponents, will make you blind literally.

He is one such incident, with high beam at your face, its impossible to see what's in front

This is another one. I do not know what he was thinking making a turn like that. What could have I done to warn the driver?
