But as intense as the agricultural industry may be in India, the delivery drivers don’t have it easy either. To begin with, a lot of people on Indian highways have a loose concept of safety. And there are areas of the country where the roads themselves are overgrown or damaged – and full of potholes.

However, it was another hazard entirely that had people talking in the middle of 2017. On August 1, a video was uploaded to YouTube that showed how a potato truck got waylaid by a massively unlikely highway robber. Indeed, the culprit managed to bring the tater truck to a complete standstill.

Actually, the thief is just another example of something that can go wrong on the roads of India. This particular incident occurred in West Bengal in the east of the country, and it amazed startled onlookers. In fact, one of them filmed the event on their cell phone as the bandit emerged from the cover of the Garhbeta Forest.
