Doing stunts on public roads is a risky thing. Especially in India, where the roads are filled with vehicles almost all the time. By doing such stunts on public roads the person is not only putting his life in danger but, also creating inconvenience and being a threat to other road users. A person driving or riding a vehicle can easily get distracted if he sees people standing on top of a moving car. This can even lead to an accident. For the person standing on top of the car, he can loose balance while the driver accelerates. He has nothing to hold on to. Chances of him falling from the car and getting injured were also high luckily nothing of that sort happened. If you are interested in doing such stunts either on car of two-wheelers, it is always recommended to go to a private property or road. Also ensure that no other vehicles come of the property or road while performing such stunts.
