Default overspeeding causes tyre bursting

here is the pic of a tyre burst i had on the pune expressway while a little over the speed limit. Tyre bursting can cause a nasty situation fellow drivers. Please follow all safety precaution before leaving on a road trip.

Saw this spanking new innova near the Olympia Tech Park in Chennai. Was probably being driven back for repairs. Must have been rear ended by a truck at high speed.

When i busted this tyre, I realised that i didnt have a jack in the boot of my car. I walked almost 2kms in the scorching sun to find a yellow coloured Phone booth which reads "SOS" and guys ,as a matter of fact the SOS push to talk phones on mumbai-pune expressway dont work. Also the helpline number was busy for the next 1 hour(which is how long i tried before i got out of there through other means of help).
Thats what you get for paying Rs.118 as toll (one-way)on the expressway everytime. So just an off topic tip to all my fellow bhp-ians, please have all the necessary tools for the most unforseen circumstances.

Play Safe. Adios..

I have a feeling KP goes around hyundai service centres looking for tyres and ends up seeing all these accident car's.

Some accident car's may actually have tyres missing i feel. And I think we all know where they must be stacked.
