Thank you both for calling this sort of driving out. Public roads should not be treated like closed off racing circuits.

Cheers! Yes, I have a handful of online triggers, and fog causes accident is a biggie! I suddenly can't read anything else but that, and hit the keyboard accordingly.

Two more crashes involving the Harrier.

This is what happens when you don't pay attention and exercise due caution when approaching a junction. It almost looks comical, but could have been worse given that helmets were not worn.

Rollover crash of a Honda City ZX on the Agra end of the Yamuna Expressway, spotted on my way back from Kolkata 2 days ago. No details available.

I wonder how anyone can roll a stable car like the City - tyre burst, maybe, but the video does not seem to show a flat tyre on any corner.

What is the story with Ducati? Looks like a Multistrada.

Autorickshaw is on the wrong side of the road. Sadly, this "cutting the corner" style of making a right turn is now the norm.

This is almost a norm here in Delhi NCR. People just can't seem to maintin the lane/line while taking turns.

Often with a 30-degree wrong-side approach to the turning

Even though it might not be a 'planted' car as you say but it's still a car with one of the lowest center of gravity in India.

I imagine the driver might have hit the divider or something else resulting in a rollover. Can't imagine a city rolling over on its own

Reminds me of that old video of a two wheeler rider doing a stoppie and the auto turning into the bush, as the driver could not stop. Everyone looked calm and composed.

There appears to be an attempt to stop by the auto driver, whereas the two wheeler rider looked destined to head straight, even though there isn't a road ahead. No visible head turn or an attempt to stop. The pillion isn't even aware of whats about to happen.

Very little you can do about these small by-lane roads. Traffic rules seldom exist on a main road.
