    For your information sir, it is not a crime to get into an accident unless some civilian is injured. Thus your request of being charged won't be of any use sir. The vehicle owner can do whatever pleases him. Unless someone is hurt

    Thank god the person escaped unhurt. While we say enough about the roads and the conditions, it is scary how people drive. High speed , lack of discipline, hurry as if corona is chasing them, overtaking from left , it’s scary to be on roads ... can only wish and pray that we are all more careful and humble when on the road...

    Road is always Slippery in rainy season. This driver put sudden brake and
    Car went up side down.

    NO. Here ABS works 100% on all 4 wheels if you apply sudden brakes or panic braking thus prevents wheels from skidding, not sure what car it is but all newer models are abs equipped. so in any case when cars turn upside down its means because he veerd of at high speed and lost control. As per my experience I bet it's highly impossible to control and bring a vehicle to proper grip once it loses road traction. Never try to take a sudden cut in highway when you want to overtake another vehicle ahead of you in rainy season.
