The recent tragedy of the Morbi bridge collapse was brutal but we still find people attempting such careless and perilous stunts for no reason at all.
In this latest video, a Maruti 800 car of tourists is seen forcefully crossing a hanging bridge just a day after the tragic Morbi incident. As many as 135 people were killed including 34 children in the tragic accident when a suspension bridge was broken in Morbi across the Machchhu river in Gujarat. However, as the country mourns the demise of these people, we come across such mindless acts within a day of this horrific incident. It looks like people don’t learn from such grievous occurrences at all.

Maruti 800 Crossing A Hanging Bridge
This latest video clip has been shared by Mundodi Vlogs on YouTube. The visuals show a Maruti 800 car being forcefully taken over a bridge that is barely wide enough to hold the vehicle in place. As per the information in the video description, this incident took place at Yellapur over the Kodasalli reservoir. The compact hatchback has almost made it across the bridge when the locals asked the driver to go back. The width of the bridge is so less that even a single person is not able to cross. The bridge is built for pedestrians, bicycles and two-wheelers. There is a sign at the entry which says that four-wheelers are not allowed.

However, the tourists didn’t bother and started driving on the hanging bridge. Such incidents show how careless people can be. A heated argument between the locals and the tourists ensued. After a long discussion, the locals were successful in making the Maruti 800 retreat. This bridge connects Shiavapura village with other villages to reach Joida Taluk. Without it, people would need to travel 150 km to reach the other side. The locals have asked the authorities to take action against such disobedience by the tourists to the local laws and regulations.
