A crazy truck driver was filmed at the border crossing station in Komatipoort, Mpumalanga with a traffic officer clinging to the front of the moving vehicle.
The bizarre incident was posted on SA Trucker’s Instagram page. According to the trucking publication, an issue between the driver and traffic officer occured when the driver parked in a “no parking” zone.
