However much car bodies are improved, poles and trees seem to be able to do a huge amount of damage, even including killing occupants.

@Thad....the poles and trees were stationary all the time all year around. The homo sapien that decided to take matter into its own hand and drive like neanderthal should be blamed here and not the trees or poles for causing the damage.

Intent is that the cars were built to protect to an extend only. when the driver decides to test poles strength through his stupidity please leave the poles alone

Absolutely noting against pole, or trees, and will, I hope, be leaving them alone.

Our Nursing School bus met with a minor accident.
Two drunk morons banged their moped into our bus. Both suffered from broken femur bones. The bikers were so drunk that they couldn't even give their residence address to the cops.

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Ahmedabad: 21-year-old Daksh lost control over his car and hit a power pole and then a signboard near Shivranjani Crossroads early on Sunday morning. Police identified Daksh as the son of Gujaratís betting kingpin, Dinesh Kalgi. Cops have booked Daksh for drunken driving and damaging public property.

According to police, Daksh Thakkar, a second-year commerce student at a city college and resident of Paldi, was returning home from SG Road at 3 am. While crossing Maruti Complex near Shivranjani Crossroads, he lost control over his vehicle and hit an electricity pole on the footpath. In an attempt to get away from the spot, Daksh tried to take a sharp turn but the car turned turtle. The vehicle dragged on the road for 15 feet, damaging a signboard on the way.

ďA team of Home Guard jawans deployed near the crossroads had seen the car coming at great speed and were about to start on a chase when they heard the crash. One of the jawans checked on Daksh who had received a few bruises. He was reeking of alcohol and was apparently sloshed. He was brought out of the upturned car and was taken to a nearby clinic for treatment before being arrested,Ē said a police official.

Police said Daksh had not been found involved in any other criminal activity so far. Dinesh Thakkar, alias Kalgi, was detained a number of times recently for his stake in Sudama Resorts and in several smaller clubs known to be gambling dens and part of betting networks.

Around 120AM this morning a white MINI Cooper open top rammed into the median at the junction of Greams Road and Greams Lane near Apollo Hospitals Chennai. The MINI was not having registration plates. As seen in the pics the right front side was damaged fully. The Head Light broken, alloy wheel was jutting out of the right front tyre. It seem to me a major repair job. The occupants were fine and escaped unhurt thankfully. A joy ride gone wrong!

Its like a smart phone. It doesnt matter how smart the phone is if the user is dumb. What a beautiful car and my current crush as well.

Case of either drunken drive or inability to understand basic physics. To every action there is twice the reaction when you are inside a car

I had a similar bump on a santro rear bumper, was much worse than yours, my mech removed the bumper, poured hot water ( not the painted outer surface but from behind) and then pushed it to place. The was no damage to paint ( mettalic grey). Using a hammer or even a mallet will break the paint into chips. It has worked for me, you can try it as a last resort.

So finally I got that dent removed from Trend Automobiles, B'lore.
HERE (Body Repair & Painting, Glass Repair, Detailing etc. - Trend Automobiles (Bangalore)) are the details.

Came across this video.

A real eye opener in terms of g-forces in action under impact.

I had a nasty dent on the bumper of my NHC removed in a similar way. The mechanic just searched around for a candle, lit it and heated the inside of the bumper. In about 5 mins and 100 bucks i had saved a few thousand bucks that the H.A.S.S had quoted!
