Man Clings To Car Bonnet For More Than A Mile Following Road Rage Row

A lot of us struggle to be our best selves when behind the wheel, and as a result, seemingly minor altercations can easily escalate into full-blown roadside throw-downs.

But a road rage row in India went way beyond the run-of-the-mill verbal abuse exchanged between motorists, with a man left clinging onto a car bonnet for more than a mile.

The incident rapidly escalated following a prang in Ghaziabad, with police intervening and asking both drivers to park up. But as the driver of a white Hyundai hatchback attempted to flee, the driver of the other vehicle, 32-year-old Jagbir, jumped on the bonnet.

Evidently not interpreting this as the checkmate move Jagbir had hoped for, the driver put the pedal to the metal and took off with his new human hood ornament. But both men were clearly extremely determined to win this high-risk game of chicken, with Jagbir refusing to dismount and the driver refusing to stop, weaving through traffic for more than a mile.

Eventually though, the hollering of Jagbir and the beeping of other vehicles appeared to persuade the driver to stop, with Jagbir proceeding to bang angrily on the bonnet, clearly unimpressed by their excursion.

A local source said: "As Jagbir parked his car, the other driver tried to flee with his vehicle and the victim tried to come in front of the bonnet in order to stop his car, but was driven on it instead.

"A few road users who saw the mishap unfold took out their camera and shot the incident.

"The victim was dragged for about two kilometres before the car came to a halt.

"Jagbir then asked the man to come out of his vehicle."

Other people surrounded the car and the driver was handed over to police, the source said.

So the moral of the story is, if you have a bump, don't be a dick and try and drive off, 'cos you will get caught - particularly if the driver of the other vehicle clings to your bonnet and refuses to let go.

That said, if you have a collision with another vehicle and they try to drive off, we can't condone jumping on their bonnet... even if Jagbir was pretty damn successful in the end.
