A recent video that is going viral on social media platforms now shows two buses in Tamil Nadu racing with each other, even as they weave in and out of lanes amid heavy traffic. The incident is believed to have taken place between the town of Pollachi and the city of Coimbatore, both of which are in the Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu.

The video, uploaded on April 29, seems to have been shot by someone who was travelling on a two-wheeler — an act itself deemed dangerous. However, even more dangerous seems to be the manner in which the two buses are seen jockeying for position amid thick traffic on the highway. One would not be amiss to mistake the actions as being from video games like Grand Theft Auto. 

The video is two minutes and two seconds long, and the actual action begins 12 seconds into it, where one bus is seen going completely off the road and even into a different lane — where it faces oncoming traffic. The other bus is soon seen following suit, as it overtakes several cars and two-wheelers, with nary a care for the safety of other vehicles or people on the road.
