Somehow these idiots have the habit of grabbing the front brakes to skid the front tyres a little to showoff, looks like physics has finally caught up. Probably the most annoying habit every.

How on earth did he skid like that? Looks like he applied front brake pretty hard on the wet patch.

re: Accidents in India | Pics & Videos

What about ABS? does it mean he slammed his brakes hard and pulled his handbrake as well?
People were gentle since no one was hurt, had he hurt someone people would have vandalized his car.

re: Accidents in India | Pics & Videos

Another drunk driving accident in Hyderabad this week. The rider of the bike died as per reports.


The rider apparently turned his head to talk or listen to the pillion rider as per some bystander reports and then swerved right into the median and barricades.
I can't see clearly, but he was apparently wearing a helmet.

Looking at the way the small kid running towards the victim (usually we see them running away from the scene traumatised) it might be someone she knows.

Don't understand what that guy was trying to pull.

Honda Activa has this combo-braking where if you pull just the rear lever, both the brakes get activated. Looks like bike in the video is Honda Dio (could be wrong) and the driver may have pulled just the rear brake lever while trying to change direction (ever so slightly?). This could have lead to locking front wheels.

I think ABS cannot stop wheels from skidding once the car is moving sideways. Either ESC or TC (I am not sure which one, or maybe both?) can stop a car from sliding. I know this because I have tried making handbrake turns in a Ford Fusion hybrid and the moment the car starts moving sideways, the electronics used to kick in and straighten the car. I had to eventually turn them off to succeed. But unlike this moron, I attempted it in my US office parking lot on a snowy December afternoon with my then boss sitting shotgun. Boy it was fun and is a must try for everyone
But never ever even imagine doing such stunts on a public road.

That looks like a suicide. No body would lose the direction like that if he turns his head back for a second. If drunk, not sure how was he driving sanely till there as it appears, until he did that sudden swerve and I guess even picked up some speed along followed by that swerve.

Somebody needs to educate him on HOW TO DRIVE. RWD or FWD doesn't matter.
