Tool Baba,

The air bags did not pop as the impact was not at speed. Only damaged parts are right fender, bonnet & windscreen. The headlights, bumper and everything else is intact.

bags without belts are doubly dangerous. Belt up even in the rear seat.

Some common sense rules.
1. Kids under 12 sit in the rear seat and must remain belted at all times.
2. Adults in the car shoud be belted at all speeds exceeding 5kmph.

I have friends who regularly do NOT belt up. I wont drive with them untill they are belted. Even my mom belts up. Maybe I am obsessive but I dont see the harm.

Well guys we are both okay... The seatbelts could have saved the fracture and stiches though.. I usually wear it at all times but the 0.5 km ride seemed casual and short, but anyway, buckle up all you guys no matter where and how you ride

And thanks to viper for all the help !!

Cyrus,

No offense but which part of the below statement did you not understand.


"The air bags did not pop as the impact was not at speed. Only damaged parts are right fender, bonnet & windscreen. The headlights, bumper and everything else is intact."

The car can be seen at KS's pump and if you like I can post pics after taking Karan's permission.

Guys, let us leave credibility of crash claims out of this thread. If somebody does not believe what is here, they can go and check it out at KS's place, or PM KS or RDKarthik.

Sorry to write this point here (probably this has been repeated but still i like to remind) , its not important only to see you are belted but its important to see that you are belted correctly. I see many put on the seat belts for the sake of cops. Please make sure the belt is not twisted when you put it on and make sure it goes over your collar bone and NOTHING should be in your front pockets especially stuff like pens as these are the ones which cause more injuries in case of accidents.

Nice to hear both are safe.

Interesting little detail! Have never thought of that (but then i dont really wear a lot of shirts with pockets / or ever put stuff in them), but im sure it applies to a lot of people. Good to know.

Glad to heard RDK and KS are okay.

Buckle up.

Just my point of view. Now since things have been cleared, why is this thread still getting the desired fuel to go on & on???Why dont the mods lock it or maybe they are waiting for some more comments on this & heat raising???

Thats an interesting point for discussion buddie.Had never thought of it.Most of the people have their mobiles in their shirt pockets while driving and as you said it is dangerous situation in the event of a crash.
