I think the most unsafe vehicles are the call centre cabs. These guys drive like maniacs and don't care about the passangers or anybdy for that matter. The drivers are not at all properly rested, the timings are odd. There have been so many incidents recorded in and around Gurgaon and Noida.

for me the most unsafe car in India by FAR is the Maruti Omni, where incase of an accident, you are the crumple zone

So you are suggesting a chauffeur-driven Omni perhaps. Which is anyway the case since these days, it is largely sold as a cab.

Default Without a doubt the Auto Rickshaw

The Auto Rickshaw is a regular one vehicle accident machine. Purely for the disruption and dislocation that these guys cause to all others this is by far the MOST dangerous vehicle on the road. these guys have no rules to follow, stop anywhere, turn anywhere, no wrong side no signal. For a few days in Pune there was a Rickshaw strike - believe me when I tell you that the traffic was the best I have ever seen!

I think no car is unsafe if driven by sane / alert minds .It is the driver who makes a car safe or unsafe.But yes if to be involved in an accident i would say Maruti Omni is extremely unsafe.

Default Re: Most Unsafe Vehicles on Indian Roads!

I find the Force Traveler mini buses quite unsafe. Maybe its got to do with the way their drivers 'fly' these vehicles. Also, I think they are allowed to ply in city roads and the 9am-9pm restriction is not applicable to them (applicable to heavy vehicles).

I always maintain a safe distance whenever i see one.
