Another nut case expecting a fully loaded truck to brake for him. Just because he now wants to use the highway.

A mini Bus that went off the road left five people walking on the footpath injured near City Market, Bangalore after hitting a scooter. As per information, the bus ran over the scooter. The driver of the bus as usual ran away from the scene

You second chance does not seem to have made you any wiser, going from your comments. You haven't heard anyone dying in a skoda, whereas you have heard people dying in Benz, so it makes Skoda a safer car? How can you make such stupid statements, after all that you have been through?

Please do a search on this forum, you can find instances where people have died in Skoda. I am not saying Skoda is good or bad, but let the build quality of the car not lull you into a false sense of security.

+1 to this. 2 times lucky does not mean third time lucky as well. I wish and pray that you change your driving style or better keep a driver.

Remember, you can run...you can't hide.

PS: I am sorry if I have offended you. But just and advise to a fellow human being. Life is precious, respect it.

Oh my God!,this seems to be really a bad crash and i really doubt whether the front passengers escaped,i wish they should have and this seems to be rear ending a truck which doesn't have low bumpers.

I can notice that only in new truck they have the low bumpers that too only on some light heavy vehicles.The vehicles with two rear axles which carry sand doesn't have the lower bumpers and if some rear ends these truck this is what will happen.when will the RTO implements the strict rules even for old vehicles

Holy Cow!!!! It will be a miracle if the driver escaped from this mishap. This santro is really banged up. Do anyone have any updates on causalities?

Yea...right! people driving a Skoda is protected by the special guardian angles arranged by Skoda themselves. You won't die in a Skoda. Why don't you try banging your car headon with a truck or something at 160 next time? It will be fun since you know you won't die in a Skoda. Or may you can drive it off a cliff....

Dude you have this false sense of safety. No matter whether you are sitting in an M800 or a Skoda, accidents can happen and people inside the car may die because of that. Chances of survival is marginally higher in a safer car, that's it.

May God protect you well till the time you get over this feeling. Only time can change this. Always wear your seatbelts.

How about sending an email to the Traffic police commissioner along with the picture of the wrecked santro. To addlcptrafficbcp @ gmail. com? or The deputy commissioner dcptrafficeast @ gmail. com, That's the first thing i'd like to do when i log on from a computer. The safer way to travel on indian highways is by your own large bus with a million airbags

What you said is living truth. Even Princess Diana died in the safest car in the world. No matter how safe the car is made, has the most technological gadgets, it is always in the hands of the driver that matters.

To all u guys..Clevermax...Amtak..Kuttapan :

I'm not boasting about myself here plz nor Skoda..I just honestly feel Skoda is a very safe car from my experience and definitely my next car would also be a Skoda only but that does not mean i'm gonna crash my car or drive it at insane speeds unnecessarily again..I am addicted to speed, i accept it and i know a lot of guys in this forum are too..And mind you accidents happen at lower speeds as well (like my first vehicle was an esteem and it was banged by a bus driver on the rear door with no fault of mine)...still i would not want to justify my action but just letting people know in this forum how safe Skoda is and people should buy it atleast for its good safety features..I in no way want people to drive like me to harm themselves or others .
