How about press coverage for such events ? Is that illegal too in that case ? I dont think so, unless there is a restraining order from court which gags media/people from talking about a case/evidence there is no such restriction on clicking pictures of such a car.

Tanwar, read what he said again. The bold words say it all. He meant to say the policeman told him that doing so was not illegal, but sometimes, one can end up paying a hafta/bribe to someone or might be questioned.

Sorry everyone for going slightly , but this discussion can be useful for those who hesitate taking pics of cars outside Police stations (for posting in the forum) . I hope it ends here.

BTW, when I 1st saw the pic, I thought the i10 had banged into a pedestrian and the pedestrian died. Didn't expect the driver to die in such an accident.

On one occasion, I put my foot on the clutch --- except it wasn't there, I hit the brake, and luckily the person behind me stopped in time.

Jumping to conclusions, but it looks like lack of seat belt was the killer in that car.

Yes lack of seat belts usage was the culprit here.

When experienced people speak its better to keep quite if you cannot acknowledge.


MODS: Please put a not to others not to go and take pics of cars in the police impound unless you are the owner/related to the owner.


Pramod

Reason why i ended up clicking up the pics is to bring notice the issues in changing from a manual car to A/T suddenly.

My relative told me the story of this car as he knew the owner and he told me its the top end A/T version then i asked why didn't airbags deployed at the impact and he went blank. so i stopped over on the way to make sure it's a A/T car without airbags and ended up clicking pics

@ pramod - thanks for remembering me about issues that can happen

Default i10 T-boned

this evening my brother's i10 was t-boned by a TVS star city bike on one of the cross roads of malleshwaram. The people there start accusing my brother for rash driving , he somehow managed to hold back the crowd till the backup i arranged arrived at the scene and spoke him out for a compromose. the bike fellow was not ready to come to the police station as his documents were not intact and demanded 5000 for his bike repairs, we finally paid him 1000 bucks and sent him . will have to claim insurance to repair our car. our right front fender is damaged, driver's door has a hole on it, i still dunno how it happened and rear door has a dent on it, guess that happened when the bike fella fell on the door . attaching a few pics, sorry for poor quality of snaps, dubba 5800 camera.

Default Tanker-Trailer Collision-Both Drivers Alive

Here are pics of a Tanker-Trailer head-on collision in Gujarat.

Result of the impact:
  1. Tanker somersaulted and landed off the road;the driver was reported safe.
  2. Trailer's cabin came off and landed on the side-this driver came out unscathed;not a scratch
The trailer's is an astonishing case.The cabin,apparently the hydraulically operated type, worked like a Jet Pilot's seat .

It just came off the chassis and landed on one side and thus the driver was saved.The steering wheel cannot be seen anywhere.

So just imagine .If this were a "securely fastened" cabin,it would have been curtains for the driver.

I saw a Grande Punto on Banashankari Ring road near Kamakya theatre.
Again this time the culprit seemed to be the speed breaker put up recently
The driver side bumper, light and fender uptil the door was damaged very much I couldn't stop for a snap.
Anybody saw it or have any other details?

The dent you can see towards the bottom of the door is a hole punched in. Will update bout repairs as soon as it is fixed

Our driver's employer's Indigo met with an accident yesterday. The car was turning, when the car in front of it braked hard to avoid hitting a dog. The Indigo banged into the car in front, and the Indigo's front portion got damaged. Bill - RS 30k, covered by Insurance.

the biker fell on your car and you had to pay him money! you should have dragged him to the police station or at least waited for the police to show up!

Whis is what happened when a truck moving on wrong side brushed a Siemens bus today. Pictures courtesy, a friend who was on the bus. Quality of pic is on poorer side as it was taken from a mobile phone.

I think the mob mentality wouldve forced him to pay out.
As usually, in mob justice, its the bigger vehicle's fault, no matter if the bike guy was pulling a knieval on the road.

One easy solution to pacify the mob, and the other person involved is(if youre being coerced into giving money.), to pay out,plus exchange a copy of RCs(i have at least 2 in my vehicle at all times,JIC).
This usually placates the mob as it is no big deal.And belive me, in every instant that ive faced this, the other guy refused to take the money, as people abusing vehicles in such a manner usually dont have papers in order, or are joyriding someone else's wheels.
I dont know the legality/complications in thi, but it sort of points out to the crowds that you're genuine about your concern.

enzoy.

PS: that "indigo" line reminded me of the school era jokes(mother's husband's son is....???).

No, not at all. Our indigo is fine, and I even travelled in it this morning. My dad is the driver's boss, the guy from whom we got the driver is his employer.

EDIT: Hotkar, you should've dragged that bloke to the Police Stn. He has no right to ride without proper documents. Also, was he wearing his helmet.

Doesn't look like a easy solution to me. Activities like Paying-out, exchanging doc's come only after the mob cools down and when the talks are on.
You need a lot more to pacify the mob:
  • Local language proficiency
  • Good physique
  • Cool (Presence of) mind
  • Boldness
  • etc. etc.

Unbelievable! Looking at the state of the vehicles one cannot imagine that the drivers escaped unhurt.. Good that there is no loss of life in such a major accident.
