this seems to be the case of rash and irresponsible driving.

as if the driver dint slow down on turn and tried to turn at a very high speed in a small car full of people.

lot of people drive what they cant control.

lot of people think they should drive real fast on expressways

anyways wish that people drive safe cos this expressway is having accidents every now and then which is unfortunate.

Ok its the same place where a corolla overturned as it lost control.

For a empty road, this road sure kills a lot of people

I could not make out it is a Santro.
Govt should put caution boards at most bends on such roads. My experience shows that most highway bends are dangerous to approach at speeds above 100, as the centrifugal force is just too much for the car to bear.
no caution boards and the limit use to be 80 kmph and now it is crossed by the govt. itself.
I blame Janta, Companies and Govt. all 3 of them for such accidents on expressways.

yes, you are right. You wont believe i had seen people driving on passions, crux r, centra bikes with thinnest tyres with full thrust with their families, on high speed lane of expressway.

3-4 days back. a major accident was about to occur infront of my eyes, 4 vehicles. safari (polititian), scorpio(polititian), baleno and esteem were cruising at around 100+ kmph because i was at 50-60 kmph but they were atleast safe distance from each other approx 10-15 feet away from each other and suddenly a villager with his child on his shoulder havnt even bothered to check if the car is coming or not. safari stopped approx 6 feet away from that guy and swear i don't know how those people managed to control their cars as all the cars were out of control with sudden brakes. all the people in the car then started beating that villager and called the cops.

120 kmph on a curve and that too in a santro loaded with passengers ( esp kids ) and you asking who do we blame -- and u add the Govt as an option , DAMN , its just a case of being dumb and stupid and the driver should be fined heavily for such an act . You can't BUT BLAME the driver of the mentioned vehicle .

The Govt is making better roads but that doesn't mean that they get blamed for the stupid acts of some over confident accelarator happy people . Its lucky that they escaped without any casualties !!!

Cheers

PS -- maybe we should ban the govt for allowing companies to make cars that go faster than 20 kmph ... lets revert back to bullock carts -- really stupid to blame the Govt for everything that goes wrong or is it just the way we are made ???

In Uttar Pradesh, have ya seen the highways? Highways to haridwar, hill stations like nainital uff.
Now just one good road and people are not able to digest that road.

We have good roads to agra but what about other places?

Govt. - for not providing good roads and one good road like experss way and not giving instructions to the people how to drive carefully. Taxes are so much that companies can't sell their products acc. to the international norms here because of the high taxes and companies downgrades their cars. No Securty norms adopted by the govt.
Mods please change
"whom should we blame for this?" to
"whom should we blame for such accidents on roads"

I think people are missunderstanding.

Another Accident on Expressway, noida.
Heard in the news, havnt gone to expressway noida because i'm hibernating at home.
1 Bike was hit by a truck, biker died on the spot.
RIP!

If people will ignore the safety rules and regulations, accident will go on and on and on... as i had mentioned i had seen few bikers running their bike to the extreme right lane (high speed lane) instead of left lane.

no body is to be blamed for this as no person is responsible for one persons ignorance.the driver of the santro should be aware that he is driving a santro and he should be aware of the capablity of that vehicle.if he fails to do it then its his problem.there are people who sticker amby with ferrari stickers and feels that he is ridding a ferrari.
