As any driver knows, the excitement of a new car is definitely something to lose sleep. Even more so if this is the car you ultimately worked so hard for and spent several days researching to buy. Driving out of the dealer’s grounds after all the papers have been signed and the keys have been handed over is a critical opportunity. That’s it, you’re the key to independence (or monthly payments) and even more memories to be had. Don’t spoil it, okay? Don’t be like this guy in the video.
This video was taken in India and consists of two angles, the first being either the personnel of the concessionaire or a family member documenting the first journey of the owner, and the video surveillance camera of the concessionaire. It shows an excerpt from what appears to be a first-time car owner driving his all-new Volkswagen Polo hatchback. The story appeared on Motoroids, an automotive website based in India, where information is provided on the ease of obtaining a license through what appears to be a complete lack of proper training and effective application. Basically the system sucks and almost anyone can get a driver’s license without too much trouble. Hence what happens next.
Owning a car can be considered a privilege in developing countries, and judging by the applause this new driver got as he slowly moved away from the crowd, it may be a privilege that needs to be verified. Completely. Instead of slowly getting out of the parking lot, the driver decides to get out of a parked car and click instead. For good measure, the overturning of the vehicle was also necessary. I mean, judging by the lack of correction after making the first right turn toward the exit and the apparent confusion between the brakes and the accelerators, I think it’s safe to say that the insurance company has lots of paperwork to send.
Fortunately, no one was injured and cars and inanimate objects that have no chance against bad drivers can still be replaced or repaired.
