In similar news, recently reported on a Polo driver who left the driver's seat while the car "drove itself". Another Polo driver has been criticised by South Africans. Daniel Marven recently took to Twitter to share a clip of one such driver performing what seems like an impossible and certainly reckless "driving trick" on a busy unknown road.

In the clip, the driver of a white Polo is seen sitting in the passenger side of his car leaving the vehicle still in motion but without a driver in the driver's seat. All of this is happening when a car, in which the cameraman is sitting, drives alongside the Polo, asking the driver - who seems to be thrilled by his dangerous actions - "Who's driving this car?"

The reckless Polo driver then jumps back into the driver's seat while the car is still in motion and quickly speeds out of the camera's sight. The mind-boggling clip quickly racked up over 15 000 views from tweeps who criticised the man's reckless road behaviour.
