Mineel - my condolences to the family.

thats an horrible sight - again why the hell should the guys speed at 4 am and (maybe) drunk ?
dont deserve any sympathy on that count though.

and its not the cars fault or its safety features if we use it like this , or is it ?

What the hell is wrong with you man...first of all you drive underage...then you drink and drive and on top of that you are being proud about it. Its nothing to be proud of man.

By driving drunk....you are endangering not only your life but of others as well.

@gr8guzzler: Are you sure they were tubless tyres? Because a tubless tyre will loose air gradually and wont burst like a normal tubetype tyre.

No then whats the point of saying that you've crashed 5 times that too drunk all the times...shouldnt you have learnt the lesson the first time. anyways let it be. DONT DRINK AND DRIVE to everyone...

Be careful...just imagine what your family and friends would have to go through if something were to happen to you or anyone for that matter.

Looking at those pictures....makes you think thats for sure.

Drive safe!

Yup that law is a good move...a non bailable offence will make regular drunk drivers think twice. But how well its enforced remains to be seen.
