Chandramouli, an Indian from the Salem region of the Tamil Nadu state of India, accomplished the peculiar feat last week at an event at the Edappadi Bypass.

This success wasn't handed to me on a plate. The ambitious man, whose love of driving dates back to when he was just 10 years old, reportedly put in a lot of practice for the job, according to odditycentra.com.

He acknowledged that while breaking the record, the 29 minutes and 10 seconds were excruciatingly painful for his neck.


He advised anyone considering trying to drive in reverse to use extreme caution to avoid putting their own and other drivers' lives in jeopardy. Reverse driving is reportedly a common activity in India.

Records reveal that in 1984, driving a considerable distance in reverse made headlines. James "Wilbur" Wright and Brian "Cub" Keene of the US drove a Chevrolet Blazer 14,534 kilometers (12,000 miles) backwards in 37 days, passing through 15 states in the United States and some provinces in Canada.

Due to the poor quality of the roads and the irresponsible driving that leads to traffic accidents, it is evidently not something to practice in Ghana.
