i went through the same experience yesterday. got caught in a chain braking event. rear geometry of car is fully out. i hope it will get back to shape. i wanted to claim from the innova guy who hit me but when i got out saw he was also badly hit by a truck, so just left frustrated. anyways was lucky all had seat belts on and baby was sitting in lap so survived. getting new baby seat as present one has been outgrown.

+1

I guess all of you should edit your posts. How about meeting up for some "Fruit Juice" ?

HappyWheels,
I am not sure if the bumper is getting back to shape. But all I know is that it doesnt bother me anymore

No, but that would be a dream job - to be working as a copywriter for an ad agency. If I were to get an offer from one, I would quit my current job without any further thought even if it entailed a huge cut in remuneration.

What I want to know is that when you registered a FIR, did they not ask you to leave your vehicles as case material and then get it released on supardari from the court the next day?
There is a difference between an FIR and a Police Certificate. The latter is issued when you have been in an accident for no fault of yours (the police ascertain this). You need to go to the area police station that deals with traffic cases and write a letter giving details of where you were driving from, to and the accident itself. This letter is to be submitted with a copy of your DL, RC and Insurance Policy. The originals will be verified by the Inspector on duty.

The Police Certificate is useful - it is written proof that the accident was not your fault. It also serves as a preventive measure from anybody else claiming an(y) accident on the same date was your fault.

When my Indica was rammed into (from the RHS, dented driver door and fender) by a drunkard on a Splendor in 2003, I got the Police Certificate in an hour from the police station at Besant Nagar, Chennai. The accident happened on the IT Corridor.

I have no idea about criminal cases, though.

Aye got used to it now

Waiting at a signal near MEPZ, a luna guy came and rear ended my Swift. Apparently his brakes 'failed'. I went down and told him that "his brakes might have failed, but if something happened to him, the junta as usual would have screwed me up".

Anyways the right tail light now sports a crack. Guess his handle bar hit it. Didn't bother asking the guy for reimbursement. :|

FH : Do you have some sort of a sticker stuck behind your Swift saying, "Come on, take a strike" ?!

Seems to be quite a magnet, that rear of your Swift.

I guess the fault lies in the ABS + 195 profile tyres. When braking in an emergency, the car stops well.. while others dont.

Or, is it the T-BHP sticker?
