Question Re: Merc catches fire on Mum-Pune Expressway

OMG, Thats real close for the poor chap. His presence of mind saved him in the nick of the time.

Aren't car manufacturers thinking of introducing fire resistant materials for building a car, atleast the interiors should be fire proof. Also having an additional safety device in smoke detector beneath the bonnet would not be that expensive. This would atleast cut off the engine and minimize the fire & its impact.

Default Re: Merc catches fire on Mum-Pune Expressway

He is also very fortunate that he was driving alone. I cannot even imagine the consequences if he had multiple passengers with their seatbelts on.
This only goes to show that we need to be alert to multiple situations while driving
