Discussion for another day but I feel the Indian currency should be devalued further. Crores of cash buried in cavities in cars and this is not the first time this is happening.

Meanwhile in Delhi, people still driving blindly in this foggy weather. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured. Such accidents have become really commonplace in this weather. It has especially become hell for bikers as some cars still zoom past at breakneck speeds in this low visibility.

Fog is never the culprit, it is the driving that is the culprit. Even without any fog at all, I have been thinking recently that some drivers may as well be driving blindfold, given the amount of notice they take of other road users.

Driving must be adjusted to the conditions (eg wet roads, reduced visibility, etc) not to the driver's ego. The alternative is accidents.

This happened on Rohtak road in Delhi.
Two cars, a brio and an i20. Both of the cars travelling at speeds upwards of 140kph.
Suddenly the i20 skids and hits the brio on its driver side door sending the brio spiralling out of control and it hits a divider, the handbrake was pulled and brakes applied.
The i20 also skidded, but was in better control and suffered less damage.
The i20 had 2 passengers, both buckled up
The brio had just the driver, without wearing a seatbelt.
The brio had no airbags or ABS, the i20 had airbag(s) and ABS.
After the impact the airbag malfunction light lit up, but they didn't deploy.
Both cars were not serviced regularly. The brio had ran 11k and was 3 years old and still hadn't been serviced once.
The i20 skid was blamed on low PSI in the tire.
All this was told to me by the driver of the brio, awaiting details from the i20 driver.
I will add the pictures of both the vehicles. From what I saw of the Brio, it did not "seem" to be a high speed impact.
My questions, everyone survived without any injures, how is that possible?
It leads me to believe that even though the speeds were high, the "impact" speed was low, but how low?
This kind of reckless driving can kill someone innocent. In this case they were racing at 1AM and it could've been some other vehicle that suffered the brunt.
I think the i20 must have had won out tires, it wasn't raining so it could not be aquaplaning.

.
About the impact and amount of damage I can still understand. But I have a new confusion here. Let me get this straight, two poor drivers were involved in a 140kph accident, whoever's fault, and you was asking them about their cars service history? I dunno, just seems a bit inhumane to me. Forgive me if I'm getting something wrong here. Just can't picturize the scenario.....

Service history was told to me about a week before the accident. They're my friends. What Poor drivers? They were street racing, that is illegal and can cause disastrous consequences.

Saw this Brand new Fiat Avventura in this condition at Carnation, Marathahalli, Bangalore. Both airbags deployed.

Guess it was a case of over speeding!:what:

Looks like the Avventura hit a Pole and at decent speed. May be an in-experienced driver behind the wheel. Very sad to see a beauty ruined :(

Witnessed a minor accident in my IRVM this morning on the way to work. Was climbing the BETL ramp from the Silkboard side and usually people tend to speed up in this section (after being bottled behind buses blocking the road), but for one fella driving a beige i20 and another an Aveo, it turned out to be a big mistake. Me and the i10 behind me stopped in time as there was a traffic build up ahead. The i20 driver might have been distracted and screeched to a halt, almost hitting the divider (in an attempt to avoid the i10 ahead). Then there was a loud bang - a maroon Aveo had rear-ended the i20. The last thing I saw before moving off was the i20 driver moving a bit forward and the bent fender and broken number plate of the Aveo.

The i10 fella behind me had huge sigh of relief that his car didn't get rear-ended

Default Tanker goes shopping in Pune!

Was on my way to the airport. Saw this near Dighi road.
Am not sure what exactly the driver needed so badly that he had to go shopping this way...

On a more serious note, the truck broke the barrier, went over the divider, on to the other side, crossed the footpath, and entered the shop.

The truck contained Liquid Oxygen - thankfully the tanker did not burst otherwise it would have been a nightmare, since the shop was at the base of a residential building.

Few pics of the truck :

Noticed a traffic jam this morning on my way to work on ORR right before the Babu Sahibpalya flyover in front of Trident Chevrolet (between Kalyan Nagar and Banaswadi). A man was sitting dazed on the road and looked like a two wheeler was rear ended by a car (not sure though). Could not take any pics as in was in a bus and lot of people had gathered.

Saw a pile up on Airoli bridge coming towards Airoli, navi Mumbai after mulund toll. This seemed to have happened between 9.30 pm to 10 pm tonight. Stuck in traffic for over 30 mins. Maybe around 4-5 vehicles involved. Couldn't take pics and not sure about casualties. One of the vehicles seemed to be pretty badly bashed up.
