    OMG! I've seen skateboarders doing this, but never anyone in a chair. So dangerous! Just imagine hitting a pot hole...much less getting side swiped!

        He learned it skateboarding.
        I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

          Dangerous, you've got that right. But, likely if this selfish idiot did hit a pot hole or get side swiped he wouldn't get a scratch, but innocent drivers would be involved in accidents while trying to avoid him that could kill or maim them or others. Even if he were killed, imagine the horror a driver would have to live with for hitting him, even though it was no real fault of their own. This is so not cool!

            One of my all-time favorite movies (and books). I am a big John Irving fan.

                      Absolute madness. I live close to Salvokop and get nervous driving there with the recklessness displayed by some drivers and the general condition of roads in that area - potholes and cracked paving is common

                            The motorists. Please search on YouTube 'South African Taxi Drivers'. It will give you a good idea what I'm talking about,
