This is one of the stupidest things you can do on the road

Do you remember the game called ‘Chicken’?

This is a phenomenon that happens often in South Africa, and this video shows exactly just how dangerous this act can be.

The footage sites teenagers running over a road just as a truck drives by – assuming that the point of this ‘game’ is to cross the road at a highly dangerous time and try not to get hit by the truck. However, the one boy fails and the truck runs him over.

Even though the boy walks away from the accident injury-free, this is still one of the stupidest things one can get up to on the road.

No charges were brought against the truck driver as he was traveling within the legal speed limit for this particular section of road.
