Or maybe this is yet another installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise.

Two bus drivers in India have had their licenses suspended after a video showing them in a drag race went viral. The video, filmed by a motorcyclist and shared on Facebook, shows bus drivers , who are employed by private companies ABS Ayyappa Bus Service and SVT Sreevelavan Transport, in a drag race – nearly missing causing a big accident.

The video, which took place on the Coimbatore-Pollachi highway in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, clearly shows one bus trying to pass the other bus by driving on the wrong side of the road. Check out the crazy video below.

According to officials, there have been issues like this before with buses racing on the highway to be the first to arrive at stations to pick up passengers. Um, what?

“We are exploring possibilities to increase the timing so that there is no incentive for buses to drive in such unsafe manner,” Gayatri Krishnan, a Pollachi district official, told NDTV.

So remember, if you ever find yourself in India and need to take public transportation, just don’t.
