Sticking to basic thing to wear seat belt is very good on your part. Felt very happy to hear nothing happened serious. Please post how much you are charged at Cauvery ford for repair.
Hi, Thanks for the compliments potlaravi!
Well, i have tried the route u just mentioned, and have also done Kundapur thru Mangalore, thru mudigere, karkala ... ad others.
So, its more of travelling on a diff route everytime, more than taking the "Correct" route
Wrt the Expenses incurred for my Ford Fiesta:
Total Expense of damage --> 62,000 Rs
Total Incurred by Self --> 21000 Rs
Remaning amount --> Insurance company

Basically , the front section of the car is mostly plastic/fibre, which means a 50% insurance only, incase of replacement.
Head lamps cost 6500 Rs a piece!

Bumper is fibre too, the grill, fog lamp holders, the radiator fan assembly, are all plastic/fibre.
