With over 200 million registered vehicles in the US alone, accidents and road rage are bound to happen. Some of us are decent, and some are pretty reckless drivers, but a good piece of advice is to 'drive like nobody else knows how to.' With distracted driving being the number one cause for incidents, the people in our list below contribute to this matter quite a lot. Now, we've all seen at least one PSA about the dangers of texting and driving, but how often do you see someone playing trumpet while operating a vehicle?

Yes, there are people out there reckless driving while distracted by some genuinely outrageous activities and lucky for us they were caught on camera. The individuals in the following photos could benefit from reading a book on how to drive more safely, unlike the bad driver in one of the pictures we don't recommend they read it while driving. This is our reminder for the next time you're out on the road, keep your eyes open for some genuinely bizarre sights because you never know what you will see on the highway. However, for now, you can scroll below! And don't forget - safety first!

I once helped a woman put on her spare. She said she was going to get the tire repaired even though it was now a mass of steel belt shreds sticking out of maybe an ounce of rubber (we had followed her for miles trying to get her to pull over).

People need to understand that having a driver's license is a privilege and not a right of birth. It comes with the responsibility to safeguard other people from danger. As far as I am there should be test if someone has enough common sense to drive a car. All the idiots who endangered other people in these picture should have to lose their licenses on the spot. No ifs, no buts, no exceptions. If you're too dumb to drive safely, you shall not drive at all.

His ankles and feet are quite well protected if he happens to crash. MUCH safer than wearing regular shoes or - god forbid - flip-flops. The only issue is how the fuck does he change gears.
