i agree with GTO sir..but yes once i was among the seven fools in our Wagon-R

i still remember those days. me and my twin bro always used to go in like that reason being the stereo was awesome to hear from there

lolz those were the good times we werent old enough to be at drivers wheel.

i guess its about being more towards convineance. we left our Lancer ( there was a safari - dad told forget taking that into the city!!) at home so as to not get held up in traffic and we were six me, bro and couzins. 2 front 2 back and 2 at trunk..hehe.

yes it was total ignorance from our side but no one seemed to bother!

but now i imagine what would have happened if something went wrong.

i never allow such stuff now. though my nephews insist on standing in the front seat!!! while i drive. that is really scary! once my nephew was shtulling between rear and front inside my accent!! ayoooo noooo!!!

yes time to be serious and stop doing such crazy stuff!

peace out
sameel !

That reminds me of the Sumo transports that come for IT/BPO companies. Even in the Sumo this feat is difficult, let alone in a Wagon R !

Everyone here who feels that carrying more than the stipulated number of passengers in a car (on city roads) is a major compromise on safety; I assume none of you guys travel by auto rickshaws.

According to me autorickshaws are a safety concern. They have a very high tendency to topple and of course there are no seat belts.

And if autorickshaws are considered unsafe, then 2 wheelers would be an absolute NO NO ?



PS - Whenever I drive on highways, I ensure that all the occupants have their seat belts on.

Sighhhhhh. Look at this poor ol' man, cramped in the last row of a Tavera under fairly large pieces of baggage. Absolutely no value of human life!

This is no more different than people sitting in the rear seat of the Omni 8 Seater ! Both are protected only by a thin sheet of metal !

The worst case was this. I spotted this 11 people on board a City at the Noida Greater Noida Expressway doing 100+ Speeds with ease. This was a Disaster waiting to happen. Imagine if somebody Rear-Ends this, the legs hanging out etc etc

Fat chance of survival for those two in the hatch. Who would be to blame? The two idiots crouched in the back? Or the other 5 in the car for letting this happen? Me? Or an absolute lack of awareness?

Crazy people out there, I tell ya.
When we are more than 5 people wanting to go somewhere, I always jokingly suggest the boot to the 6th person, but never done that! This group must be crazy!

I feel extremely uncomfortable not wearing a seat belt. There are my friends who question me. But then even if i sit in the passenger seat while they are driving, I wear the seat belt. That forces them also to wear, sometimes at least.
