thank god everybody is saved. looks scary. and I would like to know bus driver's stand. I mean, what was he thinking? did he at least feel sorry.

off topic, does anybody know the ratio of accidents on highways vs accidents in urban/residential areas. looking for a rough estimate.

rehaan: In sweden, the traffic fine is similar to what is stated. Fines are according to income.

http://www.whiterose.org/michael/blo...es/000498.html

Quote:
Nokia board member stopped for going 47 mph in a 31 mph zone is fined $103,600. Sweden bases traffic fines on ability to pay as determined by income tax returns. This staggering amount is the equivalent to two weeks pay. I would be very sad to pay two weeks of my salary for a ticket, but we are talking about how to get the attention of a guy who earned more than $2M in income last year.

Lesson Learned: Donít admit your income to traffic cops in Sweden
http://www.radioink.com/listingsEntr...publishersnote

Quote:
In Sweden, the police could not control the problem of speeding because wealthy violators would pay the fines and continue to speed. When legislators examined the problem, they realized that fines would not stop people unless the fine was proportionate to the income bracket of the person violating the law. Therefore, the government began basing fines on the income of the person speeding.

The police have a database of income levels that are entered into a formula that involves a combination of income and severity of crime. Violations less than 12 mph over the limit mean a fixed fee in the $400-$600 range, but violations more than 12 mph above the limit kick the fine into a percentage of net income. In one example, a well-known hockey player was caught speeding on two occasions. In one case, he was going 14 mph over the speed limit and was fined $71,400; in the other case, he was fined $44,100

Glad to know that all the passengers was safe after that accident. This shows how essential seatbelts are, and Innova's a solid car.

to sum up all of this, "WE NEED TOUGHER LAWS", but before that the police must be equipped with recording cameras to establish the crime, like without seatbelt, jumping red light, fast driving etc. without these tougher laws wud only b good for Traffic cops cause people wud b greasing them with a fraction of the cost of fine making the cops super rich.

what wont u do 2 escape a fine of 10k, atleast give the cop 5k, m i not correct???

One thing to observe that the front of the Innova almost absorbed the whole force to itself - transferring little to passenger compartment. That proves a good design.
Off topic:
I do like the idea of income based fine. But in India, most wealthy people don't pay even enough income tax! No one really knows ministers' and actors' real income.
So, I don't think it will work here.

Stricter laws are useless without honest cops.

I'm glad nobody was injured in this crash. Hope insurance is covering the damage.
