Whats wrong with that truck carrying coffins? The truck is neither overloaded and nor is it a wide load. As long as the coffins are tied securely, it is very safe.

Over loading = Cargo that is over the max weight the truck can carry safely. Those coffins are empty and don't weigh much.

Wide load = Cargo that is not heavy but just wider than the truck. It is perfectly safe and legal to drive on roads if accompanied by proper warning signs (atleast outside India). In india you dont use those signs.

If the cargo is longer than truck body it is safe and legal if secured properly and you don't even need warning signs. The trucks back door serves the purpose of providing support for longer cargo. Imagine saddle bags on cruisers and a fat driver. They spill over the seats but it doesnt mean they are over loading the bike.

@ whatcanthisbe - These cars are non runners and they obviously do not deserve to be here. I thought we were discussing cars that are spotted running on the road here.

According to the pictures posted, it doesn't seem like they have moved for the last couple a years!

Doesn't deserve to be here!

Whats with the rear wheels and axel. Looking London Talking Tokyo. They are totally out of allignment. Looks like the body fell of the chassis and was just put there for the time bieng. Have seen many a taxi cab like this. A bad accident = bent chassis = bad quality workmanship or repair job (Thook-Patti Kaam) = cockeyed vehicle. Maybe the trucker wants to feel like hes drifting

Bent chassis so the truck has a sideways track, see lots of these around here too. They look like they're drifting even while going straight!!

But this one is too skewed up compared to the ones I see around here. What gives? Broken rear axle maybe? And I hope nothing was damaged too badly in the accident?

Great one Gogi. This piece of metal went over the divider about 40 kms before this place and had a twisted chassis where the headlights were facing north-east and the tail was south-west. The driver used to keep correcting his course and managed to drive. What I wonder is, how did they manage to keep the axle to keep supplying power to the rear wheels.
