In a major accident, a Tata Tigor showcased the importance of road safety and the dangers of overspeeding.
Over the last few years, Tata Motors has improved safety standards in Indian cars. It is one of the few companies to have three vehicles with a 5-star safety rating. Even entry-level cars have received good safety ratings. Now, a major accident of the Tata Tigor put the safety ratings of the SUV to test. The results of the crash show the importance of road safety and dangers of overspeeding. Nikhil Rana has shared the details of the serious accident on his YouTube channel to raise awareness of safety standards in modern vehicles. Let’s take a closer look.
As you can see in the video, the Tata Tigor met a huge accident in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. This incident occurred when three Tata employees were taking the vehicle for a test drive. Apparently, the car was running at high-speed and eventually went put of control. Due to a massive crash into a bike and a divider, the front of the vehicle was completely destroyed. There is damage on the roof and side as it rolled. As a result, two passengers lost their lives on the spot, while a third passenger received massive injuries. Also, a bike driver also could not survive the mishap.
In a nutshell, even a safe car with good safety ratings could not save the passengers from overspeeding. The Tata Tigor went through serious trauma as it went out of control. Over-speeding is a clear no-no on Indian roads as quality varies from place to place. Also, since random objects might appear out of nowhere (animals, kids, potholes, etc) it is important to be mindful while driving. Thousands of people lose their lives in avoidable accidents every year. While you can invest in a car with the good build quality and safety equipment) and it could save your lives, always follow the traffic rules. Also, report anyone driving recklessly to the authorities.
