Saw this VDI just now when i went to get my Alto reverse lights repaired.

Guess what was written on his windscreen - " Sadak pe Rahi Bhai Bhai". someone didn't take him seriously

the swift seems to have undergone below a truck, only to stop before its too late.
Saw a car like this DZire, that guy had the front bumpers in his boot, may be some thing on the road caused him to put it there.

As I already told in my previous post, if you drive 100 Kms through NH 47 in Kerala. you can see at least one accident.

There was this big traffic jam when I was driving to Karunagappally from Cochin today afternoon.

The reason, a truck carrying an LPG bullet had toppled yesterday, and they were trying to lift it by fixing those cables across the road.

and, here's what happens when you're so lost in a mobile conversation while driving uphill on a curve when a bus comes down fast. Driver escaped scratch less, and he was leading a team of local people happily, to lift the car up.

Oh, right... people standing around cables under tension with makeshift anchorage points. One ping, and it's legs one way, body the other, and an awful lot of blood and guts on the road.

Yes, that's right... They are enjoying the scene without being aware of such dangers.

Yes, one each from two of my stories..

Traffic being diverted from a distance. This was managed well, thanks to the old NH47 road which is still available parallel to the new one, in these stretches.

And a close up of the Alto which fell asleep by leaning against the wall.

Speedy,
I saw this Accident on Marine Drive.
Do you know how it happened? When I passed, there was a santro cab facing the opposite direction, a NHC right there in front of the Santro Cab and the S320 next to it.

OT - All our office cabs sport this sticker. These were distributed by their vendors in order to 'try' and reduce road rage.

Yeah, and a cop playing pocket billiards on the scene too - ready to be martyred!
