    this happens due to care-less-ness and law-less-ness in the country.

    wat if traffic police checks the licenses randomly instead of helmets

    These new corollas have pathetic road grip & balance. Their center of gravity is quite high. There is always a high chance that a speeding corolla meet the same fate mentioned above, than any other car e.g. Civic, Lancer etc

    i saw this on my way back home this morning…at 8am the car was still there… a lot of cars had gathered around it…and they were making it even more risky for the other cars that were driving fast…
    the expressway is a completely dangerous road design wise… any unfortunate person who loses any control on his car wud be throw way higher in the air than this car….

    like i said – The manufacturers are cheating on user, they are supplying undersized wheels in brand new vehicles assembled locally.

    “wat if traffic police checks the licenses randomly instead of helmets”

    Are you crazy … do you want all these corrupt policemen stopping you randomly and then harassing you to give them money for whatever reason they can think of?????

    @arfeen: So u mean to say that they dont harass u uptill now??

    My friend was telling me that while he was wearinga helmet, he was stopped by police and asked for HELMET. lol.
    He said here it is, then he was asked to show his “kaghazat”. yeh tu haal hay charsi polica ka!

    ok updated report from morning’s newspapers:

    The car was stolen and was used in a mugging at Shahrah-e-Faisal, late evening, where a female victim was looted of nearly Rs.70000, gold jewellery and other valuables, while she was on her way to DHA from Airport, after returning from USA.

    The lady reported that the muggers, used a blue light and siren to stop her and posed as plain dressed police officers (maybe they were actual police), and took away her belonging while aggresively SEARCHING her stuff.

    Later that night the same car met this accident, and the occupants were able to get away leaving one wounded behind who is in Police custody and is already charged after the victim identified him.

    This opens up another debate, can a civilian car with no markings of being a Police vehicle, other than just a blue light, force us to stop and being searched without any identity being showed to us?

    this road is so dangerous. I have seen many accidents there while my 4 years of engr.

    verysmart, I was thinking the same thing. Do we have to pull over if its an unmarked car? I’d say no, but what if its actual khi police and they start firing at you or something…

    My contractor told me about this incidence. It is terrible. No doubt about that. Many drivers, including myself, sometimes emphasize too much on the road grip of their vehicles and modern car handling systems. And that’s one major reason why we’ve got so many accidents. According to a recent DAWN report, 33,000 accidents happned this year. Over 700 fatalities were reported.

    Actually, this particular road is notorious for its construction. Only experienced drivers can take on this road easily.
