Travelling at around 210 kph and throttle stuck for 30 mins is no easy job. We all can speak of different ideas to stop but as kpzen said when we ourselves are in such situation, we really won't get any ideas to stop it.

You know what guys... if you are doing something above 200kmph on any road anywhere in the world is plain insane. period. So forget about everything else, I think the guy had no business running at that kindda speed He should have been charged for overspeeding. Remember his accelerator was jammed but it was not working on its own... He himself took the car to such a crazy speed.

Yaar vo air planes me fuel dump ka option hoota. Ab jab crash karne ka mood hoo vo saa*a button press karo, fuel dump karo n crash karo.

There should be a switch in car too and it should read like
" DUMP FUEL "
pls. forward this idea to BMW n mercs,
if there is no fuel the car wont be running. rite?

Imagine police chasing you, they are following you, all you do it dump some fuel n throw a match stick. bang cops will be gone then i guess


BTW this option is in planes coz a full fuel filled plane is heavy n risky to land.

Well... the idea is good on the surface but there are more problems to it. If you dump fuel on the road you will cause 10 other vehicles also to crash.... even though you may manage to save yours. Moreover with all those sliding and crashing vehicles will cause sparks to go off lighting up the road and causing even bigger accidents!

That was my point!
ie. that there was no clutch in the BMW as well since it was automatic!

Well, given the fact that he was driving an automatic, if he was doing 40km.h and then pressed the accelerator all the way to overtake or something and it got stuck at that moment, that would eventually lead to him accelerating to 200km/h! so cant blame him for speeding!
