    PLEASE DRIVE SAFE...

    ..pictorial depiction only a grim reminder that nothing is truely safe in certain situations and circumstances.

    At least 30 cars crashed into a major pile-up on a major highway in Haryana early Wednesday morning. Four people who were travelling in one of the cars have died.
    Officials say the mishap occurred due to poor visibility owing to fog.


    “A truck broke down on the road...another vehicle hit it from behind. Then at least 30-40 vehicles piled up because of the fog,”

    Highway Patrol Officer Manoj Kumar was quoted as saying to ANI.

    As expected the truck which broke down must have had no means of alerting the oncoming traffic. Guaranteed their rear stop lights would not have alse been working. It becomes very important that you drive within the speed limits and in case of fog redcue the limits so that any surprises can be dealt with.

    Isnt that an Punto Evo? So a car is as safe as safely it is driven. This one is completely mangled and looks to have gone underneath the truck. So no chances of safety features working.

    Very Very Sad...Maybe driving in fog itself is full of extreme hazards. :(

    I found another photo in a forum where the protection bar at the bottom of lorry is missing. Really gives goosebumps after seeing photos. Very sad.
