People come at you from wrong side without even noticing "NO ENTRY" board
Yes even buses

As a Mumbaikar turned into a Punekar, I wonder where all the traffic cops of Pune are! While their work ethic and professional conscience may be questionable, they can still discipline traffic by being present at key spots where they can throw their weight around and extract cash from law-breakers. Even that would improve traffic discipline and make life safer for other road-users.

thats what I also agree with
Its fine by cops to take bribe, do whatever but let people take money out of their pocket.
How much unfortunate it might sound, this is what goes in Pune

anyways seems like we are off topic now
lets get back to topic

Thumbs down Yet another broken 207!!

Same bridge. Same model truck (207). Broken in a similar fashion as mentioned at the beginning of this thread. This guy too tried to force his truck through the barricades. Result : Yet another broken 207. Though not severely as the last one.


Looks like these trucks have an alarming tendency to snap into half.

ME too! But the lawbreakers got what they deserved.
But what I dont understand, instead of just the bed getting ripped, how come the entire thing bends like that? Or does it happen to all pickup trucks?
Now waiting for a Mahindra Pikup driver to pass through for comparison's sake.
The barricades (which are rebuilt) are visible from quite some distance, and a driver can easily judge whether his vehicle can pass through or not.

back on the topic, 207 does look weak at the point where the cab section meets the loading section. one reason cud b because of overloading. over the years i have noticed all the 207 to have a small bent right at that point. this cud b a structural flaw, ny body wants to put more light on this.

That bend in the ladder type chassis frame is there by design. Most Tata trucks/buses have that bend in the chassis. On the other hand, trucks/buses from Ashok Leyland have a completely straight chassis, somewhat like railway tracks. The Tata design is supposed to be more scientific. Probably it lowers the CG, thereby increasing vehicle stability. Probably a mechanical engineer can give us more informed views.

Even the Mahindra Jeep chassis has bends in the frame. The area below the front seats is always lower than the area below the jump seats at the back. I think, Gypsy too has the same set up.

with little info that i have if we have a bend in anything, be it a deliberate bend, as soon as pressure is applied on it, its more prone to collapse compared to something that is straight. now this holds true for rods & houses.

The chassis "bends" are in all Jeep Chassis too (1941..2006)!
They serve to reduce the CG of the payload area and make for a stiffer frame.



And they are not achieved by bending a straight steel channel.
(For illustration: An "L-shaped" plywood coffee table is not achieved by bending a straight sheet of plywood)

Is the chassis damaged beyond salvage in these cases ? (those pics). Does it retain its structural integrity if "forced" back into shape?

You people are really sad people. :(
You enjoy other people's losses & pain. Just think of the Traffic Jam caused by the accident.
