Default A BPO cabby who thought he is a pilot and his ride a jet









Thought for a while whether this fellow tried to take off his car in to air.

Saw this car on my way to work today near KBR park in Hyderabad. Couldn't figure out how the wheel got over that huge footpath. Probably he was going at very high speed that the car did not stop when it hit the footpath but went over it. When i stopped there, no one was around. Hope no one was hurt. This road is close to IT parks and charms anybody to push the pedal. But this particular point, a very small curve, i didn't feel is difficult for anybody with little driving skills to maneuver.

i have seen quite a few peculiar accidents in airport road (GST road) in chennai. i have seen fully loaded water tanker with two rear wheels parked on a 2 feet median and similar such cases with cars.

i think its difficult even to imagine the kind of forces that act during an accident resulting in such bizzare parking....

Very funny,

One of the incedent i witnessed I do not have the pics though , this happened 6 years ago...While I was waiting at the signal near Malleswaram 18 cross, a speeding omni from Sampige road, mysteriously jumped on the pavement on the right side (after the 18th cross), literally flew in the air and landed perfectly like an aircraft inside the park opposite to CET cell.

Indica's can't fly?? Seriously I always thought the taxi trade bought them only because they could fly & defeat the traffic!! But yeah these people can be pretty reckless. Had an incident a couple of months back with a WagonR following me too closely at night near my house & on that road a divider suddenly appears & since I am a regular I moved left but the bugger thinking of overtaking me simply climbed the damn thing Luckily both of us were going slow due to traffic but it was damn funny to see!!

Come on a written off taxi Indica!! You are joking right?? These things are like small dents for them, they don't write off cars for such small scrapes & dents

It doesnot seems that the indica hit the pavement at a high speed. If it did hit at a speed, there would have been atleast a small dent or impression in the front wheel, but there is none, Did the driver parked it there deliberately??? god knows how this happened.

BTW the damage seems to be next to nill.

nah, i think the cab driver is he-man. he must have lifted the front of the car & banged it down on the pavement so that he can take the day off & go to the movies. )

Default Pleasure or pain...?

All your speculations are quite obviously off the mark.

Anthropologists have been studying Indicas for years now, & there are white papers on their behavioural patterns.

Indicas are known to have an affinity for sidewalks, especially big ones, towards the end of September. This is the time of year when they come into heat.

As you can obviously see, the poor thing was so randy, it mounted the sidewalk & did his 'thang'! The shape of the front is just an exhausted smile post event...

btw u dont need to analyse how it happened

this is not one of the crash tests where u know what when and how much the impact would have been.

another good reason to buy TATA
