Contrary to all reason...!

This is something...that is inconceivable...absolutely...unbelievable...I mean can you even think of an accident...affecting as many as 5 vehicles...and that too at a traffic signal..when the signal is red...???


 

I couldn't...I never thought about something like this...ever before...however, thanks to this flimsy experience...I have concluded that your never safe...even when you have halted at a red light..:)


 

Here's what happened...


 

At my fav spot (...yeah fav accidental spot..:D...)...nal stop...the signal where you turn towards Karnatak School...

The signal is bright red...broad daylight...and not that it just turned red...its red say about 40secs remaining...to turn green

A truck...in full speed....approaches the vehicles that were obeying the red light...and wow...what do we have....a sight worth watching...

5 vehicles in a row...damaged...(I cant understand...how fast the truck was that the collision spread to 5 vehicles in a column..!! whoa..!! )

Now...in Pune we always have space problems on the road...so at a signal..we know vehicles aren't even an inch far...

A poor lady on a scooty...was almost rammed between two cars...all the cars were damaged...and ... the best part...the truck driver...wanted to move out somehow..but I guess he considered it his bad luck that he was at a signal..else he would have happily escaped...

People came out to help..pulled down the driver n etc etc...


 

But the point here is...are traffic signals really needed...? I guess not...they only cause problems...to innocent vehicular traffic by forcing brakeless vehicles to stop...!
