That's India, and a very affluent area by the looks of it. Obviously illegal; but the reality is nothing would happen to the owner/father if they were caught. They would simply pay off the Cops and the whole thing would go away.

That brazen behaviour doesn't excuse the total irresponsibility of the parent(s)/car owner.   :irked:
 
Risk attached to that stupid exposure are evident, it would have been poetic justice if that vehicle was damaged (by no means wishing harm to the children)

In a country where people (even children) hang off buses and sit on trains where a whole families travel on scooters and someone dies on the road every 30 seconds the concept of 'safety' is very different to our perception here.

Maybe so but for those in the clip who clearly demonstrate haveing a different standard of living and would be in a position to be far more aware, its inexcusable

For nostalgic reasons, my aunt recently went back to India and visited her childhood home (having left about 30 years ago for good).

The childhood home is on Marine Drive, which is a waterfront road in Mumbai, not the most affluent area, but it's not in the depths of poverty either. When she was a teenager, she could see across the bay to the other side, a distance of a few hundred metres. When she returned this year, the pollution had gotten so bad that visibility across the bay was less than 100m and you couldn't see anything beyond the shore.

Marine Dr is a main road in that part of the city (similar to the way New South Rd is a main road in Sydney's eastern suburbs). Notwithstanding that, cars were double and triple parked on the road, turning a multi lane road into a one land street.

The short point: India is screwed.
