Have you run into that crazy commercially motorcyclist that has a passenger behind him and is making a phone call while in motion? Oh; you have – and you thought you had seen everything?
While the motorcyclist who is on a call is playing a dangerous game, at least his eyes are on the road ahead, though his mind is distracted. Here’s one up that:
I have seen a commercial motorcyclist with a passenger behind him, reading a text message at 50 kilometres per hour at 8pm. Reading a text message means that both his eyes and mind are not on the road. It is also pitch darkness.
It is dangerous enough for someone driving a four-wheel vehicle to be reading a text message in motion. How much more someone driving a two-wheel contraption. That’s like having a death wish.
By the way, unless you have seen a commercial motorcylcist with a passenger eating Amala and Ewedu soup at 50 kilometres per hour in pitch darkness, I’m not sure that you can beat that.
