I agree that the City driver deserved banging on to something, did the Indica guy, who was 'perhaps' following rules, deserve it?

Palm Beach is one motorist's nightmare. I dreaded driving on that road, especially during early mornings/late nights. Usually preferred the highway instead. The worst case on the Palm Beach were Auto guys, who'd take turns without even bothering to check if something was approaching.

Saw this Sumo in front of Spice mall in Noida today. Looks like a BPO cab. Wasn't able to click good pics as the traffic light turned green when I started clicking. Check out the Santro being driven without anyone in the drivers seat...

School is better than Institute
College is better than School
University is better than College
Open University is better than everything else.
Take a pick which one you want

With his right hand. I've seen this. Driver will be sitting in the passenger's seat. He will control the steering wheel from that position. Gears with his right hand. But he is supposed to do this when there is a learner with him.
Not when there is no one in the driver's seat!!!

Looks like the Sumos rolled over atleast once. Probably negotiating a curve in high speed.

Default Another Swift bites the dust on PUNE-MUM Expressway

Within a week of my posting regarding a Swift accident claiming a family on the Expressway, another accident yesterday claims another family. This Swift is supposed to have gone out of control hitting the divider and rolling down 40 feet !! Guess this must have happened on the Ghat section. Seems people are throwing caution to the wind and driving at high speeds using the Swift stock tyres probably.

Saw this at the Body shop. According to the mechanic all 4 people died on the spot when the car's left side hit a stationary truck. He did not know where the accident had occurred. Happened 3-4 days back.

Does not the magnum comes with front airbags? The pics suggest that no airbags were deployed.

And No ABS too! (correct me if I am wrong)
The car seems to have taken the hit at a very high speed!

^^ AFAIK the LT model comes with both ABS and Airbags. The LS model does not have ABS but still has airbags(not sure).
