A huge percentage of the road crashes occur because of improper overtaking maneuvers. Coupling this with the very poor riding or driving skills of certain motorists and the element of surprise will account for a hefty percentage of the total number of deaths statistics record each year.

The video below is a great example that shows how taking a bad decision can lead to catastrophic results. In this case, the outcome is a most happy one, we'd say, considering the predicament. Getting caught between three trucks is definitely not the most comfortable of situations.

Inches away from the wheels of three trucks

As the scooter almost passes the first truck, it fails to re-enter the lane and is clipped by the rear section of the incoming vehicle. We have unfortunately seen a lot of similar scenarios ending in gore and tragedy, so seeing these two walking away from the crash site is unbelievable.

Lucky for them that the driver of the third truck was paying attention to what was going in front of him and managed to brake and come to a halt prior running them over. They say the third time's a charm, but this time the "magic" didn't happen

As to what drives scooter and small-displacement motorcycle riders in so many Asian countries ride in such suicidal ways, this will probably remain a mystery for generations to come.
