Good to see it all end well Amey. I had a similar experience in Chennai when a cylist banged into my Swift at a traffic junction without warning - a good samaritan helped me immensely in getting the chap admitted to a hospital.

Passed by Kolhapur on my way to Goa a couple of weeks back - the highway is so broad and the traffic so sparse that its easy to doze off. Maybe we do need a few potholes in our country to make highway driving safer!

Just wondering, would ABS have helped?

very unfortunate incident. God save nothing happened ugly. Its always better to stop and help the victim and lodge a complaint on nearest police station for every accident like this

I had a similar incident like this when i was going to banglore from pune but it was night that time and never expected a cycle guy to jump in the middle of the highway like that but in my case luckily nothing happened because my car did not skid thanks to ABS from then i realised the importance of ABS,anyway nice to hear it was a happy ending and please give that SS guy some gift for his kind attitude and you were really lucky no one fought with you because normally people come in dispute with the driver and don't even bother of the injured person,Take care.

Default Abs?

Yes, there are good samaritans, who don't know you at all help in difficult times.. I recently had such help too.. Guess, they only remind us what to do, when someone else is in need of help, just like what they did to us.

I don't think ABS would help in reducing the breaking distance. It only prevents the wheels from locking out due to hard braking thus avoiding any vehicle skid.
