Came across this today:

Quote:
Surveillance footage from Gujarat's Morbi shows a speeding car losing control at a turn. As the driver loses control over the steering, the car crashes into a pavement outside a petrol pump. The car, which was seen coming in at full speed, turns upside down as it hits the pavement and drags along the concrete. To everyone's surprise, just a few seconds later, two men are seen coming out of the toppled car, appearing unhurt.
Seems like both were wearing seatbelts

I told him to floor the accelerator but he floored the engine instead!

One person was killed and three received grevious injuries when the car they were traveling ploughed head on onto a tanker near Shirali. The impact was such that the tanker toppled over. The victims were returning from Sirsi after the jathra when the accident took place.

I'm sure the collision with the Ertiga was not the sole cause of the tanker topple. These big boys are top heavy and prone to toppling on themselves without an Ertiga(or any other car) involved and toppling here is easily caused with a mixed concoction of hard braking and simultaneous swerving.

Here I think the tanker driver tried to avoid the collision as a natural reaction and ended up braking hardly while swerving at the same time and ended up in the bushes as a result. Of course the Ertiga might have helped him with a hard shove too aiding the momentum.

Now the one thing I'm scared of here is the " impact (with a MARUTI Ertiga) was such that the tanker toppled over" quote giving rise to a Maruti "build quality" long debate. Well, everyone is obviously free to have their opinion and on the same lines I wish to say that I believe that no matter how hard an Ertiga hits a tanker head-on, the tanker is very unlikely to topple because of it. We've all seen what happens to an MPV like an Ertiga the Innova, for example, when it even rear-ends a truck just some posts earlier. Just my two cents.

I can, however, imagine the possibility of a stationary tanker tipping over if a vehicle like the Ertiga t-bones it at very high speed. But it will end up being just a ball of metal after the stunt and not even recognizable as it is now.

Someone trying to commit suicide under a Bolero/Commander (not sure).

Driver took timely steps to be at low speeds to avoid crushing the person. He saved not only the other person but also himself from the police and legal issues later.



Some more accidents spotted online recently.

The accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. Please be cautious, careful and be aware of surroundings.

Thank god that the CCTV was on and was working. The car driver would have been in soup and would have been struggling to prove his innocence if this CCTV camera was faulty like it is in most of the cases in India.

The rider was plain stupid and is for sure not alone on the road.

That guy commited suicide within 10 minutes by jumping under a truck in Kottayam town. The people were shocked to witness him getting crushed live. He tried 3 times , the second one was by jumping in front of a Taurus, the driver of which braked just in time.

Another reason a dashcam is an essential and not an optional device in this country. Car manufacturers in India should really look into adding them as an integrated device in the car, shouldn't cost them more than couple of thousands per car. Self precaution is the only way we can save ourselves from legal troubles here.

Can't conceive of the agony or mental illness that caused this.

Nothing, though, justified inflicting one's death on others on the road, rail, etc.

Seems to be a case of stunt gone wrong . The speed at which the car was approaching the intersection and the way it swerved , points to a possible stunt , where the driver seems to have applied the hand brake ! unless there is a tyre blowout , I see no other plausible reason for the vehicle behaving in the fashion it did .

For the Bolero incident, all one can say is it's probably a good idea to have a dash cam installed. All we had to worry about were people driving like maniacs, now we need to watch out for people trying to coming suicide.

The bus incident, the driver was clearly distracted trying to avoid the man crossing the road and completely missed the woman on the other side. Although the place seems to be a roundabout and the bus is taking a wrong turn, although I could be wrong!

The biker in CCTV footage is again something I always worry about. If he crashed into a car, the driver would be in some unwanted trouble without the help of a CCTV footage.

And then the Biker who actually crashed into the car, both of them should have just stopped. From the video it looks like the biker went around another trying to turn right. Seeing this confusion the car driver would have switched to his right not expecting the biker to recover and come back into his lane. Most of us would decide to act in a similar way but braking and stopping is probably the best solution.

Defensive driving is the best course of action with a dash cam. The ugly wire hanging all the time is what has stopped me from installing one so far.

This scooter just tipped and fell over at Parel. No apparent reason. Luckily the driver had a helmet and the passenger too seemed fine.

Watch it in full screen HD.
