Could be an Accent or an Esteem, not too sure!

The disguised car is an accent. the rear window of esteem has a quarter glass that is absent in this car. Next is the size of rear door.

I performed the same trick on my friend too, He wares seatbelts only on highways and not when the car is moving slow in the city, I was driving at 10kmph, told him to look at the speedo and told him to be prepared for a sudden braking, After hitting the breaks hard, he looked at me with a sheepish smile and wore the seat belt!

Try the method that i used on my friend, It really works
If they still refuse, tell them that you don't like the dashboard damaged when their head hits it when you break hard! Teach them the hard way

An I20 coming at around 60-70 kmph coming from left to right lane just went and climbed the central verge .It had to be lifted up and moved to the sid eof the road.The whole engine / gearbox is in bad shape .As the gear was not engaging , car was starting but blew up tons of smoke and it is a petrol 1.2 .

A pillon rider lost his life after the bike was hit from behind by a unidentified car. The bike rider managed to escape with few injuries. It happened early morning 5 AM on the Bangalore International Airport Road. Bangalore Mirror had carried the news, September 20, 2009, Page 3.

May his soul RIP.

That is been hit bad really. I guess it a Hunk Bike? Early Morning 5AM and high speeds I guess. I havent read the article, but I guess the driver wore helmet and the pillion didnt? I lost a close friend same way. BMTC bus hit them when they were at a signal on MG Road. Driver with helmet escaped with bruises atmost while the pillion expired. They were close friends and it was a shock for us.

For me looks like an Accent. The dash board of a verna is also beige (if i remember right).

Yes that is a HH Hunk. RIP. Very sad accident. Can't imagine the plight of the riders. Did they catch the car who hit them ?

Had seen this in the papers. Invariably, it's the guy with the bigger vehicle that gets the blame. People don't realize that most of the time, it's these two wheelers that swerve across the road and give it the beans when they think that the road is empty. They just can't handle themselves on the road. And the innocent car would be trodding about and out of no where, these two wheelers will come and try to cut through and before you realize what's happened, the car touches the two-wheeler and the riders fall. Bikers don't realize that they're more prone to accidents that people in cars and yet they try and swerve and cut through traffic. One wrong move and someone else gets the blame. Anyway, I have no idea how this particular accident happened. It could be anyone's fault. So I reserve my comments about this.

May his soul RIP.
