Bwahaha, its a dangerous road so I will get high while driving it. Oh, and I cannot imagine that beating the person you are trying to teach to drive while he is driving is that safe of a thing to do.
Can anyone identify the model of the Toyota truck driven in this documentary? Any information would be appreciated.
Damn that guy smack the **** out of the kid. I would at least wait until the truck stops
Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow.
Lol, the memories that video brought up.....
My dad is from Afghanistan but when he was about 15 he moved to Peshawar (Northern Frontier). He told me one of his first jobs was helping make the roads up there through the Khyber Pass while he went to med school at Khyber Medical College (basically blowing up rocks with dynamite). I've been out there a few times in the last couple years and have refused to ride through the passes - just love living too much.
When my dad was teaching me how to drive, he would slap me on the back of the head if I made any little mistake. Hell, he still slaps me on the back of the head if he's riding with me and thinks I'm going too fast.
Why are they son intent on decorating their trucks and making them even more top heavy and giving it worse visibility. If these roads are so dangerous you'd think they'd want to make it safer.
Also, will the government ever build a safe(er) pass through the moutains or is that wishful thinking? Perhaps the Pakistani's/Afghan's don't want one built? Symbol of manhood if you can get through the pass alive as is?
Thanks for the answers revealing that the truck is actually a Bedford.
Here is another fantastic Al Jazeera documentary about truck drivers in the DRC. This time with an IVECO truck:
