Thumbs down Pics of Vehicles that don't deserve to be On-Road

Hi All.

This thread is for posting pictures of Vehicles that don't deserve being onroad from a LEGAL or SAFETY stand-point. Thus, pictures of bad-looking cars or dirty/weird/whacky mod-jobs don't find their place here.

For example, the following type of pictures could be posted here:
  • Terribly polluting vehicles: We see a lot of such Sumos, Indica's, Omni's, Auto's, Trucks etc.
  • Dilapidated vehicles missing head-lamps, tail-lamps, and badly dented etc: I have personally seen many such vehicles being used for ferrying goods in city
  • Cars/Bikes with Illegible Registration number plates or text to small. In places like Faridabad etc. I have often seen bikers ride with Blank No. Plates. And some of these vehicles are over 2-3 years old.
Many such cases exist on Indian Roads and the above are mentioned simply as illustrations. Please feel free to add to the list.

As a starter, I am posting a pic of a Matiz with a SHATTERED rear glass, absent rubber-lining at the edges and a gaping-hole in the centre. This glass could fall off anytime he went over a speed-breaker - it was shaking so violently.

That is hilarious. And scary, with the amount of traffic around.

Vehicles that do not deserve to be on Pune roads = Entire fleet of Pune Municipal transport buses, all rickshaws (inclusive of the six seaters).

I will try and get a few pics.

Aza, except for the creased boot, the NHC is perfectly road worthy. Lets focus on cars which pose a danger

@aZa: Infact I used to see such cars and wanted to click pictures but couldn't find a relevant thread on t-bhp. That's what gave me the idea of this thread. In that context, I think it's a really great pic.

@ajmat: I believe we can go with this one . Refer my first post.

When I speak from a Legal standpoint, I don't mean like India legal, but would this car be allowed on-road in the U.S. I've heard even broken tail lamps are not allowed there, but let's not go extremes, ok !!

I'm sure you guys get the drift.

Manveet

He was on the Expressway speeding away to glory.



In addition, later on the wise guy stops his car before a tunnel on the fastest right-most lane.

It is very irritating to see such people drive
On top of it they are oblivious to the fact that they pose a danger to other drivers
