MAIL ONLINE: Daredevil young men risk life, limb and licence with hair-raising stunts / Adrenaline junkies perform their ‘dangerous driving’ near city of Ha’il

Parallel parking is tricky enough for some motorists, but for others there is nothing more exhilarating than jumping behind the wheel and performing these death-defying stunts.

When it comes to such a hair-raising hobby, nothing stalls these adventurous youths in Saudi Arabia as they bring a whole new meaning to the term ‘off road’.

The latest craze among young Saudi men is dubbed ‘sidewalk skiing’. It involves a driver racing along before manouevring – most likely with the help of a ramp – the vehicle onto its side.

The daredevil group like nothing more than to step it up a gear when it comes to hitting the road near the northern city of Ha’il.

To describe it as ‘dangerous driving’ would be putting it mildly, with motorists who perform such stunts risking life and limb – not to mention their licence.

maybe they should let women drive
