Agree.

I have seen clamps being put in cars at the Bombay domestic airport arrivals terminal (the one where Jet Airways/Spicejet/Indigo passengers emerge). However, the errant owners/drivers start pleading/arguing and I saw at least one driver let off; did not get to see any money exchange hands. But bribing may be on.

Also, it seems that larger cars (Civic and the other larger ones) are avoided by tow trucks in Bombay and its suburbs because there have been cases where owners have sent bills on cost of damage done to the wheels/suspension to these cars. Or owners have browbeaten the cops.

So it is the aam admi with his/her M800/Alto/Wagon R/Santro and so on who bears the brunt alone.

Looks like London was the place to be this summer for all the car buffs ! Turquoise Koenigsegg CCXR, Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, countless Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV's( 5 infact) as well as 3 Bugatti Veyrons, yellow Novitec Ferrari 599 GTB, 4 Audi R8 and many more cars.
4 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SVs and a veyron at the same time in the street!

Icing on the cake in this video is the full blown tyre burnout of a
Mercedes c63 amg right in the middle of one of the busiest street in London! . And boy the Zonda sounds sweet!

Good God that was crazy! That 'wag' was incredible! And to do this on the streets of London where the 'Traffic Wardens' have their antennas up all the time!

The previous video posted in this thread was equally jaw-dropping!
