But if you're clueless about how traffic works in that part of the world, then its useless trying to explain, and the same thing shows through the whole thread. No offence meant, though.
No, please try to explain. What feature of that part of the world compels one to close on the rear end of the truck in the fast lane at warp speed then slash over and gas it trying to pass in the slow lane as soon as a miniscule, zero visibility gap appears when there is almost no other traffic on the road?

Because it's fun and a rush? OK, I can buy that.

Because SE Asia somehow requires it? Oh, BS. The video told the whole story. Wait a couple more seconds for the gap between the two trucks to grow, and the risk drops tenfold, and he probably keeps the rubber side down and gets to wherever he was going ultimately days sooner.

You know; smooth is fast.
