We keep encountering unfortunate incidents on our roads on a daily basis and this is the latest addition to that unwanted list.
In the latest incident, a Mahindra Bolero Neo gets hit by a train while crossing the railway track. There are such incidents on a daily basis. India is home to thousands of unmanned railway crossings. Hence, people are free to do as they please. As a result, there are often cases of undesirable events at such crossings. Mahindra Bolero is a rugged SUV. It has been among the top-selling cars from the Indian auto giant for years now. It finds applications in many areas. In semi-urban and rural regions, people use it as a passenger carrier, luggage carrier, off-roader and everything in between. Let us take a look at the details of this latest case.

Thankfully, the impact was not too great as the speed of the train was low. In fact, the train dragged the SUV for some distance before coming to a halt. Impressively, there was bare minimum damage to the Bolero. In another incident mentioned in the video, a Tata Tiago also met with a similar fate after getting hit by a train in Bareilly, UP. The impact, here, was much stronger. But the vehicle was able to save the passengers. These incidents highlight the importance of buying tough vehicles.

What We Think
We know that there are thousands of unmanned railway crossings in our country. It’s disheartening to witness numerous individuals disregarding rules and regulations on a daily basis. We highly advise our readers to steer clear of such actions. Furthermore, if you happen to encounter anyone engaging in hazardous behaviour on the roads, putting everyone’s safety at risk, it’s imperative to report them to the authorities. Make sure to take extra precautions while crossing a man-less railway crossing. Taking prompt action against such activities is essential in our efforts to prioritize road safety and potentially save thousands of lives.
