A video that captured a man in a wheelchair, hitching a ride on the back of a truck, is making its rounds on the internet.
A Facebook user, Road Traffic Management Corporation, posted the video that received more than 5,000 views.
In a country where we lose close to 14 000 people annually as a result of road crashes this is totally unacceptable. We condemn this dangerous behaviour

It is still unknown when and where the footage was captured. Supposedly, it occurred near Pretoria.
When a red car drives past the truck, the man lets go and pushes himself away from the car and onto a nearby off-ramp.
On social media, people react with a mixed response. On one hand, people speak approvingly about the man’s antics for “gaining speed”, on the other hand, there are people who consider this as an insane act.
“In a country where we lose close to 14,000 people annually as a result of road crashes, this is totally unacceptable. We condemn this dangerous behaviour,” – the Road Traffic Management Corporation slammed the stunt.
