I have started a # on twitter. #idiotontheroad. The idea is to tweet registration number of the car which is driving recklessly or violating any traffic norm. Most of these drivers think they can get away with any stupidity. Atleast twitting their car number will make them think that the rest of us do see them as idiots even if they consider themselves as machos.

I hope the real idiot who sticks to the right most lane and drives at 60km/h on an expressway with a mobile in his hand wouldn't start tweeting the numbers of all the cars overtaking him through his left!

WHen being tailgated, slow down (gently, of course!) and create even more space between yourself and the car in front of you, because you now need stopping distance for two!

That's what I was doing and that's the reason my front is intact.

Looks horrific! With a pile up this big, it was sure to have been picked up by the news channels. Still no coverage!Are we sure this is current?

Good luck with that.

Hope no one is motivated to doing this on the roads especially while driving!

Biker must have been unhurt as he sped away? Good that you did right thing but he sure didn't!

Not sure if you have opted in for overnighter but even if your ride isn't ready by then, happy to pick you along.

Happy driving (I know you drive safe so didn't need to mention!)
Yes the biker was unhurt.
Thanks for your offer to drop. I drove back in my dads car and using it here for now.

Were you able to swerve into the divider because it did not have the railing? I am wondering if the railing was present, what could have been the outcome! Brake hard perhaps?

I had an accident one year ago when a 2 wheeler suddenly veered in front of my car. Now when I drive through the highways, I am really weary of villagers in 2 wheelers popping out suddenly through medians. Once again, the importance of wearing seatbelts was proved. Seatbelts save lives. Please belt up friends,always.
I agree the seatbelts saves life and I have experienced it now.

Anyway, it's bad enough, and not a nice way to start the new year.

At least something good came of it!
Starting the year with a bang :-) Just looking at the positives!

It in a MASS in Thirunelveli.

Really saddenning to see the ride. Your's was one of the most well maintained cars that I know of in the close circles.

The damage looks monstorous from the list you have made. Lot of money and time would be wasted around. Hope there is no significant damage to the chassis and underbody.

I am happy that you were unscathed. Good things happen to good people. God bless man. Hope you and your car recovers soon from the trauma. Keep us posted on the final outcome of the repair.
Thank you, Soumyajit for the commiserations. I too feel bad that my ride ended up in this thread.

I don't know about other parts of India. But in Chennai, if an a/c Volvo city bus is behind you, it does not matter whether you are driving a Nano or a Safari, you will be bullied. Even if there is no way for you to give. A Safari can bully a car, but compared to a bus, it is just small change. Today evening while on the way back from work on the OMR, there is a non-a/c bus in front of me and incessant honking from behind. Takes some time to place the vehicle behind as a Volvo (I first thought it is one of those office/college buses). There is nowhere for me to go, but he keeps honking. In the RVM I can see him coming dangerously close to my car's rear. Finally in a cattle-free and drum-barrier free stretch, I let him pass and he goes on to bully a Tempo Traveller. So, a Safari would not even make him blink.

I saw this accident today on the service lane that runs parallel on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. This occurred at 9:15am near Sector-105. Not sure what might have happened but a passer by told us that the guy was over speeding and lost control of the Duster.

The car jumped the road divider and toppled towards the other side. Thankfully no one was hurt.

This picture shows the direction that he was coming from near Sector-105.

This is the picture of the other side when the car jumped from the road divider.Pics: Accidents in India-photo-2.jpg

These are the pictures of the damaged car with inflated air bags.

The guy who was driving escaped with minor injuries. There was no one behind him and nor was any body coming on from the other side. Otherwise, the damage to life and property could have been beyond our imaginations.

So, Duster makes it to the accidents thread.

I am worried to see the roof & rear quarters caving in.

Seems to be total loss.

Glad to note that no one was hurt.
