Sorry to hear of this.

There is something called compulsory excess and will be mentioned in your policy. That is the amount that you will have to pay. It is normally anything between 1.5 -3k. 10% is wrong.

Driver error mate. You should have moved to your right and let the animal continue on its way. Understand that it was a high speed lane, but you should have been aware of any vehicle being present on that lane by the time you got to this situation. Nevertheless accidents happen and you end up wiser.

Thought the Hyderabad ORR now has a speed restriction of 80 kmph? There seems to be a big clamp down on speeding vehicles after all the high profile accidents on that road.

No buddy. Speed limit is still at 100 kmph.

Hope it is not reduced further.

Appreciate your concern. I am already looking for alternatives and should have a solution shortly.
Driving in India is a lot different than driving in the States.

Forget pig, I experienced people are crossing/walking in ORR as well.

And See, Even if you have a zero dep coverage, you still need to pay claim charges (Rs 1000-1200) & compulsory deductibles for consumables. In your policy documents, somewhere it will be mentioned that, parts value less than Rs 500(or so) will not be reimbursed. Basically, nuts, bolts etc in repair cases. Any part above the amount should be covered. This is to prevent frequent & small claims I guess. So put together that 10% came I guess. Let me know if further help is required in this case. And btw, at which dealer place are you doing this repair job?

Cheers!

During the day even I have seen people crossing/ walking and worse case, stopping on the fast lane to pluck flowers from the plants planted on the divider of the ORR

I am yet to see people crossing the road in the night.

Yes, I was able to figure that out once I received the bill. It was a coincidence that the amount was 10% of the estimates. The charges were Rs.1000/- plus charges for nuts, bolts etc.

Yeah I have also experienced people are plucking flowers, near those L&T serene apartment area during early morning. God knows, what common sense they are having.

Be whatever reason, I strongly feel its better to be under 100 Km/h speed in ORR especially stretch upto airport from Gachibowli entrance. Things are little better once you cross exit 16(airport exit) from Gachibowli side.

I hope you have checked up your car while taking the delivery, especially painting, fittings etc.

Cheers!

Yes, I try to be in the range of 90-100 kmph. Sometimes, unknowingly, I do go over but have the dashcam configured to alert me whenever I go over.
The traffic is more until exit 16 but after that it is negligible. This incident happened near exit 11 (LB Nagar)

Yes, I did. Those guys did a decent job of the painting and the fittings. They could have done better but decided it was not worth it.
