Driving in the GTA on a good day is usually a headache, and on bad days — well, let's not talk about the bad days. We all have our ways of coping with traffic jams. Some people listen to music, others take deep breaths and meditate. Then there's this video of people playing soccer on Highway 401 to pass the time.
A video of two people playing a game of soccer on the highway made its way onto Twitter this Sunday. In the video, the two drivers are seen outside of their cars, casually kicking a soccer ball back and forth in the middle of the road as traffic appears to be at a complete stop due to lane closures.

Oddly enough, this isn't even the first time that a couple of Canadians turned a traffic jam into a sporting event. Back in January, a group of drivers turned a 70-car pileup on Highway 40 in Montreal into an impromptu hockey game!

Unfortunately, not much is known about the two soccer-playing individuals quite yet, or when the video was captured.
Judging by their confidence, it looks like they were waiting for an opportunity like this to come along. They definitely provided an entertaining distraction for the other drivers!
