Just when you thought that people who drive their cars without clearing all of the ice off of their windscreens was bad, along came the chap in this video.
He obviously thought better of clearing off the snow from his windscreen, so he instead decided to drive his pick-up whilst standing on the foot rails.
There’s no-end of reasons as to why this could go wrong not just for the driver, but for other road users as well.
One slip of his foot and not only would he vanish underneath the vehicle, but his massive (by UK standards) pick-up truck would then effectively become a huge wrecking ball.
Maybe he has seen footage of the Queen riding in her open carriage with her footmen perched on the steps of the carriage and thought that he would try and replicate the ‘outriders’.
Or perhaps he was just enjoying the fresh air and so he wanted to remain on the outside of the car instead of keeping in the warm on the inside.
What we do know, however, is that on the 0-10 danger scale, then this would come in at about a 9.
