A dangerous trend gaining popularity, now that sunroofs are mainstream

The driver thought it was funny to do a swing back and forth between lanes for no reason after crossing the speed breaker. All of this with a kid sticking out of the sunroof.

BHPian asmr recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

This was recorded on my dashcam few days back while returning to Chennai.

The new Jaguar seems to have spiked adrenaline and very much reduced common sense of the folks in the car. Not only did the car approach me so fast from the left that I had to move to my right in anticipation of a left side overtake, the driver thought it was funny to do a swing back and forth between lanes for no reason after crossing the speed breaker. All of this with a kid sticking out of the sunroof.

Here’s what BHPian SS-Traveller had to say on the matter:

What craze? It’s how people perceive cars and driving to be – a rolling picnic platform on the road, with added fun thrown in when such accessories as sunroofs are part of the car. Popping out of the sunroof is standard usage in my city – watch this.

The craze won’t end – especially when you have rules like this:

…anyone who has passed the exam at a state-accredited driving training center is exempt from taking the driving test at the RTO when applying for a driver’s license. This means you won’t have to take the RTO driving test. The private driver training center certificate is the only basis for your driver’s license.

  • For two and four-wheeler training centers, a minimum of one acre of land should be available. Two acres of land should be available for heavy vehicle training.
  • There should be a stimulator and a test track.
  • The trainer should have a high school diploma and at least five years of driving experience.
  • The center should have information technology and a biometric system.
  • Should conduct high-quality driving track tests in accordance with the transport authority’s curriculum.
  • Light vehicle training will last 29 hours and must be completed within four weeks of beginning. It will be divided into two sections: theory and practice. Theory takes 8 hours and practical driving takes 21 hours.

And how good are the driver training centres and their trainers? Here’s a video.
