I will quote my experience : i was driving to Mysore from Bangalore last year, a new swift in front of me suddenly applied breaks on the highway to ask some direction... God knows if they were asking way to hell !! my speed was some 90 odd, distance was some 8-10feet, sudden red light and stationey car made my leg to jam the breakes and in a split second i was able to steer to the right and over take the car and again this swift bugger over took my car as if nothing has happened...but what followed behind was a pile up of few cars... 3-4 cars rammed into each other and one tavera or qualis guy who was behind me also escaped unhurt and i gave way for this guy and we both were able to stop the swift and gave our mouth full, seeing my car registered RJ state, the swift thought he can beat me in local language, little did he knew that i was born and bought up here.. My words along with tavera dirvers was enough for his life time not to repeat it... But unsure how much of damages the piled up cars were into... We noted the car regn number just incase to aide in any circumstances. i was wondering if abs did any trick? It should have else it would not have been possible to steer clear isn't it?
