Eight people on a motorbike - level 3, A12

Eight people on a motorbike - level 3, A12

Well, we’ve heard of riding tandem but fitting 8 people on a motorbike is getting a bit ridiculous.

This footage of an overloaded motorcycle driving along a road in China was filmed by a person in another vehicle concerned for the safety of the bike’s passengers.

The video shows one man driving the bike while two girls sit at the front and three women with two more kids sit at the back.

China’s Traffic Management Department has warned people of the dangers of crazy driving and reminded motorists to bear safety in mind.


Interesting words: tandem (2 people together), footage (film), concerned (worried), warn (speak about possible dangers), bear (keep).
