Yup that's why he put a DMC wing and lighter wheels recently to provide more downforce, sadly the car had enough of him.

Bentely crashes in Bangalore.

One of the news paper read there were two separate incidents of Lamborghini crashes in Bengaluru on same day. While the one is already discussed here, other appears to be a Bentley. The alleged driver was already on bail!

Agree, he is ultra lucky that his pals did not jam the pedal, else it would have been much worse for him and for innocent bystanders. This particular intersection is pretty crowded with pedestrians due to the proximity of the Metro station. Just sheer luck that he did not collect anyone under his wheels as he rammed the kiosk.

On closely watching the video, It looks like the car was driven without number plate.

Mohd. Nalapad is a disgrace to humanity, and our modern society. He motivates other rich kids of politicos that they can get away with anything. He should also be tried for bribing someone to go take responsibility for the crash he caused. My heart goes out to the biker who was injured here. It sucks to be him!

Taken from the Hyderabad Traffic Police Twitter feed.

A scooterist causes in coming two wheeler to crash into a vehicle and takes down a pedestrian as well. Although to be very frank, not sure why the pedestrian was trying to the road there.

Well, traffic police itself should be blamed first for dangerously putting those barricades there blocking the fast lane. (Traffic police or whichever authority put them at there).

If the police blame the person in green shirt, I seriously doubt the analytical skills of the police. The 2-wheeler, instead of crashing into the 4-wheeler, should have slowed down if there was no space to go ahead.

As per latest amendments sought by such "2 Wheeler Riders' Welfare Association", they shall be exempted from applying brakes to slow down in such situations and instead find the smallest of gaps and sneak through by blipping their throttle and changing lanes. At the same time, the other vehicles including cars and trucks are mandated to make way for such 2 wheelers no matter what and not only be responsible drivers but also exhibit example of a good human being who cares for others' lives!

Next the blame would be on the Ecosport driver who was minding his business.

This is the main reason I honk even if it annoys people around, when there is a two wheeler around my front corners as experience has taught me 4 out 5 riders would move lanes without checking what is next to them and then behave like they did the right thing.

re: Accidents in India | Pics & Videos

There's way too many wrongs in that short video that is considered normal in India - from the road logistics to the pedestrian to the bikers.
The pedestrian appears to have serious head injury. I seriously think as pedestrians we need to start wearing helmets on Indian roads.

Would anyone have a google maps location of this location? From the looks of it, it appears to be a T- junction. If that's true, the biker in the green outfit is positioned to travel against the flow of traffic. Further, the other vehicles also seem to be positioned rather strangely, pointing in one direction with their wheels pointing in another. If they were to turn right to join the road, they would do so on the fast lane. Is there a pedestrian crossing in the vicinity?

I don't see too much wrong with placing the barriers. I think the purpose of those things are to make it difficult for people like the person wearing the green shirt from going the wrong way.

I may be totally wrong, but it looks like a U-turn or T-junction which merges to the rightmost lane. If that were the case, I think that there should have been more barriers, at least till both lanes merge. With the way our roads are maintained, I would not be surprised if such barriers were in place initially, and not repaired/replaced after they were damaged.

There is something called as brakes which the lamby has in plenty.Which the driver did not use along with his mind. If he had just dabbed the brakes the car would come to a complete halt in a couple of meters. Blaming poor road surface for the the driver's lack of ability to control the car is not not right. Thousands of vehicles pass that particular junction(including me) daily and i have not experienced any such lack of control even once. It is wholly the drivers responsibility if he is not able to control the car at low speeds even if the road lanes are not even.
