Well heres one I saw recently, on the dwarka fyover.

Just what I think happened,
1. Mr. Swift slowed down too much for a speed breaker,
2. Mr. Esteem wasn't expecting him to slow down this much, thus braked hard,
3. Mr. WagonR spill his coffee on his pants and wasn't looking ahead and goes straight into Mr.Esteem full throttle!!

Swift didn't suffer much, Esteem and WagonR seemed equally damaged.

Its a Maruti Vs Maruti Vs Maruti. After all they have more than 50 % of our market.One peculiar thing many a time is that a Maruti in great pain drops its bumper on the road.

Could be case of mistaken perception. Agreed that IBM cabbie was rash. He might have killed that dog out of mercy, after injuring the dogs legs accidentally.

Yup Diabloo, many a times i have seen dogs un hurt even though the tyres of the car runs over it ACCIDENTALLY. The dogs run barking (in pain obviously) after the car runs over it.
I am certainly against these stray dogs, its very difficult to walk alone late in the night (say around 11ish) and drive a bike at those times, these creatures suddenly come barking at us causing panic in us and many a times we can see news that childrens getting affected by these stray dogs. In worst cases, the childrens die.

This doesnt mean that i am justifying those drivers who kill the stray dogs intentionally, I am still against that.

Thanks @Santy for freshening up the air.
Ok so what the Devnagri script says is that,
A scorp was on SB Road going towards Pune University
An Indica joined the road from some turn.
The Scorp Climbed/Banged into the Indica.
No one was hurt.

Yes from what the paper says, none were injured.

Wow! Looking at the point of impact, guess the right side of Scorpio was lifted when it met the left front of Indica; the Scorpio might have been pretty fast to have been airlifted!

Ver scary to see the pics and I wonder what speed the Scorpio driver must have been going at to have turned turtle.

Default Never thought I will be posting here.

Dont Ask for details. It was not my fault. Happened in this week. Losses: 1,01,538/-. Dont know what i will be paying from my pocket.
PS: This was a scratchless , highly envied (this is for my sadist pleasure) car the second before.

Thats what happens when one rashly drives these SUV's with high ground clearance.They topple at the slightest provocation and have zero tolerance levels to withstand such maneuvers.
So SUV drivers do not lord over the streets, your SUV (including mine too!) is invincible vis a vis the tiny tin boxes, but the mighty might fall if not tamed.

Mrinal really sad to see that accident. How does the loss come to that six figure amount? The Accent is not much damaged to be needing that huge sum.
