I actually did that twice - once to my cousin sis and once to my then fiancee (now wife). Both were arguing about seat belt now required if we are not going fast (highway speed). I then braked just a little hard (after checking no one was behind me for a good distance) which immediately gave them a little jerk - hard enough to scare them a bit and not so hard that they hit something. Then I smiled and said "That's why you need seat belts"

Honda city crash on St.Mark's road last night.
The cop told me a drunk girl was driving it.
The car looked in a very bad shape . somehow the pics I took got deleted.
There was another girl in the car and both of them were badly hurt.(As told by the cop)

Anyone going through St.Mark's road can take a few pics and post them here. The crashed car is outside Bishop Cotton Girls School.

St. Marks road hmm.. last time I was there, a bunch of girls were sitting in a Fiesta and a waiter from the near by Bar was bringing drinks to the car. Looks like a rich kids hangout this place.
Anyway, did it feature in any papers ?

More if not less. Most passengers in my car - even rear seat MUST put on seat belts unless traveling 2-3km and I'm driving slow.

Anyone who disagrees gets a rapid demonstration of the speed of the VDi in city traffic coupled with some raw turbo kick and mad handling! I've not had one problem so far!

Oh my God! That is terrible! It's practically finished! No one would've survived to tell that tale for sure!

Thankfully, as mentioned, there was nobody in that car. Else I shudder to think of the outcome. The car anyhow is a total loss.

That white ANHC is risky as its bumper can fall off anytime, so for the OHC vtec.

Any guesses for the body frame of the car in the second pic?

There's a Santro behind so if this is a Hyundai workshop it could be an Accent.

I dont think that bumper is going to fall off any time. I've seen many OHCs (mine included) with the rear bumper misaligned.

Mis-aligned ones can be excused. Hangin ones pose a serious threat to other road users. I'd move from the line of sight if I'd find one on the road.

This one's most probably an i20. But just a guess.
