Eight People on a Motorbike – level 3

27-04-2023 15:00

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

A person in a vehicle filmed an overloaded motorcycle driving along a road in China. The person who filmed was 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 warned people of the dangers of crazy driving and reminded motorists to bear safety in mind.

Difficult words: tandem (two people together), concerned (worried), warn (speak about possible dangers), bear (keep).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What can we learn from this incident about safe driving practices?
