Driving in foreign land is totally different from driving in India
The Indian solider forgot that in the UK hooting doesn’t mean stop.we use brakes.
This is the UK and not India where the whole country stops for the army.
The Indian solider got confused and crashed his truck in to the British and came off worst.
