Steering a Toyota with Your Feet while Sitting on Its Roof: Offroad Form of Arab Drifting

We hadn't heard from the Arab Drifting scene in quite a while, so we hoped the mid-traffic drifting trend had started to go out of fashion. While we're still not sure about what happens on the road, it seems a way has been found for translating such irresponsible driving off the road.

While Arab Drifting or Hagwalah, as those who perform it like to call it, sees cars sliding around in full traffic, this time we're here to show you a desert trip.

This involves the ever-present Toyota and a guy who pulls various stunts until he end us sitting on the roof. We have to mention the action takes places in Egypt. Unlike Mr Bean, who used strings to steer his Mini while on top of the car, this guy steers the SUV with his foot.

Some might say that one is free to do whatever he chooses as long as he's not on public roads, but, as the footage reveals, there are passengers in the Toyota.

Nevertheless, the people inside the car seem to enjoy the stung. Actually, when the exo-driver uses his foot to honk, the passengers are amused. And since this is all happening in the desert, there might not be any law that prevents it. We want to remind you that Hagwalah is now a criminal offense in Saudi Arabia.

The Toyota handler seems pretty proud of himself, with the clip only showing moments of "glory". Alas, as we've seen in many Arab Drifting videos, this type of driving easily leads to carnage.
