A tv report aired some time ago in Brazil, shows videos of truck drivers performing dangerous tricks on brazilian roads. The filming is done purposely by other drivers who know the offenders.
In the article below from tv show Fantástico, you can see a truck from a company in the southern state of Santa Catarina, at the town of São Joaquim. The vehicle shows the name of the Regional Agricultural Cooperative of the Mountain Area(Cooperserra). In an interview to Fantastic, the leval producers cooperative said the truck belongs to the driver, who was not carrying loads of Cooperserra at the time of recording.
The trick that became famous online is known as “quebra de asa” (breaking wings) among brazilian truckers. The goal is to get the wheels of the vehicle off the ground. According to the Federal Highway Police, the drivers can answer criminally for the action.
You can read the full report on Fantastico website, where they set up a trap to catch a trucker red handed. Or watch the video below, an excerpt from the original tv show.
