Not surprised at all. Most of the bikes are cheapy bored Yaam RX 100s. I see so many people pull out wheelies riding double or triple seat in heavy night traffic even.
Was the rider taken to task?

This and the CBZ Extreme is another favourite amongst the circus stuntmen. You should try the NICE road in the early morning. You will find many improving their skills there.

Bus overtaking from left and a truck parked on the road stealthly with literally no warnings... this bad accident had to occur.

May the souls RIP!

Will the govt. take some serious steps against these moron trucks!?

Just asking, are you 100% sure that the bus hit a truck from behind ?
Seems more like a frontal impact hitting the driver's side first. Like an overtaking manuver gone wrong.

Even I cannot blame the bike for this (I blame them for most other things!).

Most of those cars got damaged because they were driving too close to the car in front. Whatever causes the mishap at the front of the queue, each driver must take responsibility for running into the car in front.

Agreed Sir, the biker cannot be entirely blamed, but if he had given a thought for the fellow riders / drivers this whole thing could have been avoided, kind of a butterfly effect.

Such a Accident was waiting to happen on the Green View road; there are vehicles parked on the left side and then some morons try to push you on to the dividers by overtaking from the left.

The exit from HSR BDA to the other side itself is not aligned and I am sure there would have been a lot of minor brushes which would have happened here.

Atleast that's how the media reported.....

Ok, even if there were no tail lights or any warning signs, will not the headlight from bus gets that parked vehicle.. I always have that question... or that would be too late for any reflex

PS: I do not prefer driving in nights.. hence have not (luckily) faced any such situations with my little night driving

^^Boy that car is in pretty bad shape. But atleast the girls didn't choose a tall boy to drift.
OT: Your signature is very good, unique. Does it suit this forum?
