But, the question is what is the cause of such Incidents?

Quote:
a M800 fell into such a hole and all the three passengers had died. It seems easy to get out of the car, but it can be quite difficult in reality.
It would be really difficult for someone to survive in such a case if he/she can't swim!
BTW, never keep anything near the handbrake. Be it a toolbox or a bottle of water!

Happened to me in Bangalore (Jayanagar) in 1995. I was coming on to the main road from one of the cross roads and the road caved in behind me just as the car crossed an underground drain.

Really unnerving stuff. Imagine driving along peacefully and suddenly being faced with tarmac in front of your face.

Default Re: Sinking ROADs in NCR

Hello All! reporting two more places where the roads in NCR are sinking:
1. When traveling from Green Park Metro Station towards AIIMS just in front of Punjab Restaurant (which will be on your left), about 100 mts. before the u-turn. A fairly deep depression has developed and seems to be worsening.

2. When traveling from pragati maidan (craft museum left) towards pragati power station (direction), opposite gate no. 1 of pragati maidan, about 200 mts. before the railway underpass towards the right of the road, another depression has formed, which can catch you out.
Hope it helps.
