Saw a MH registered white VOLVO S60 on a flatbed on NH48 when I was driving from Hassan towards Bengaluru somewhere near Yadiyur.

Manali and Himachal being tourist attractions, have seen a boom in towing sector. People do bring their own cars and sometimes due to unfamiliar terrain end up in various accidents and other mechanical failures. Only the mechanical failures have been included below:
1. A Renault Duster. No accident damage hence most likely a mechanical failure.
2. A Harley Davidson on a pickup derived tow truck near Chandigarh.

P.S. Pictures via social media.

Yesterday morning, my neighbour's hardly one month old New Honda City (diesel) was being push started. In the evening I saw a flat bed truck waiting to transport the City. I wonder what can happen to such a new vehicle? Sorry no pictures since the neighbour was standing next to the car and he might have been affronted if I had clicked a picture.

A few days back (last Thursday afternoon to be precise) saw a mighty R8 on a flatbed. Accompanied her all the way from Innovative, Marathalli till ISRO where we parted ways. No pics as I was driving.

Any point to consider [paper wise or any other] to take care of prior to loading your car on a flat-bed?

That i8 was just being transported, no issues though right? Wonder what kind of message that sends though - that the car can't be driven on our roads?

Saw this Audi outside my office near Trinity circle in the morning today:

To my relief the culprit were the rats who cut some lines/wiring while my car was at the garage.
