Hain?! My earlier post was not to offend/counter you.
I can't imagine the time you spent to read and analyse exhaust notes and my posts. It is your post which is sounding hyper not mine. Go through it one more time.

Cheers,
Thanq, but its not a matter to be complimented. As a road user it's all our duty to be helpful at such moment. I've not done anything great, but just did my duty! I request all my fellow BHPians to always have a mind to help others when ever you get a chance, especially on an accident.

diffsoft, hope you'll take me in the right sense dude!

I don't think there is an assumption here.
Yes I was there and also yes, the car in the front did not give any indicator. But then, that is the case in almost 30% cases, and, if we consider taxis and autos, then that raises to 75% cases where indicator is not used.

@predator, yes and no. I used the word "indicate" because except me, every one else was in "analysis" mode. So decided to keep the same trend.

This event was quite interesting. Since no one was hurt, also somewhat amusing. Two guys on a bike stopped the Sumo due to some past issue. The driver kept the engine running and refused to get out. The Bike guys physically pulled the driver out through the window and started beating him. The Sumo was in the first gear and when the clutch was released, it started rolling! It rolled about a 50-75 ft and climbed the shop pavement (3 small steps) and crashed into the seating arrangement of a restaurant, broke some decoration pillars and when the front wheel started going down the stairs, it stopped.
Could have been very, very dangerous. This account of the events was given by the Pan-walla who is well known to me for some time and agrees with the description of others around that area too. I saw this about 10 minutes after it happened.

Apologies for the bad picture quality, cell phone and did not use flash to avoid attracting the owners who were not too happy, obviously!!

Absolutely hanmust - I understand it is not a matter to be complimented.

To tell you frankly I am myself not sure of my own behaviour when I encounter such a scenario. When I read what you did I feel motivated to do the same.

Cheers,

Roadrage ? If yes, then these guys need to know the garbage truck theory. I can feel the change in myself.

Thanks to muralisk for sharing that story.

This was not road rage in the sense that the driver and the guys on the bike had some past issues.

Saw a gruesome one on the Bangalore ORR at Mahadevpura, at about 7:30PM yesterday night.

Have no pics, but a motorcycle rider lost his life. He and his ride were lying between the front and rear tyres of a tipper. From the position of the vehicles on road - looks like a bad move by the motorcyclist.

My cabbie hinted that he saw the rider's grey matter all over the road. Poor family of his.

I feel sad for the car driver.
No markings nothing and an obstacle in the middle of the road.

But the damn thing looks so funny.
Of course I am very sorry it happened. But cannot avoid a stupid smile.
