As one would imagine, this could create unbelievable damage if anything were to suddenly appear on the road. What’s even worse is the fact that the SUV is being driven like this in rain. This could easily cause the vehicle to skid and lose traction. Since the driver already has no control of the SUV, terrible consequences await. Being a social media influencer, many people will inevitably try to imitate this stunt endangering their lives and that of others in the process.
