Icon13 Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons


So.. I had an accident today, the first rainfall of the monsoon season and I was unfortunately on a scooter with my visor on in rain.
It was very near my home, when a car came screeching by and splashed lots of puddle water on me ..
I couldn't move away from the line of my driving coz it was slippery and muddy ( due t holes being dug by the companies, all of them communications based )
so I braked hard.. !!! my speed was no more than 10 to 12 kmph.. even then due to the lack of visibility and the muddy road..
I skidded !!

I think I have some bad broken joints ( even if not brokem, then ) or soft tissue injuries !! on my ankle, knee, albow and shoulder !!

So what happened to me is what I can't go back to, but I request you all to kindly consider than when you drive a car, there are others who might even die with the water or mud splashing from your cars tyres.

Respect others on the road like you do yourself and be patient.
don't splash around the road !! Please..

Hope nothing is not major(i am assuming cause you took time and created a thread).

That is very unfortunate,but what you say is right, people who drive cars should respect two wheeler specially when its raining.

Take care and speedy recovery.

Respect two-wheelers as well as people who walk around.
Well I do my bit. Hope others drive carefully too.

Re: Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons

No nothing major as of now, coz my speed was too low and even when I knew that I would fall when I brake, I had no other option !!
MUD was all on me, I couldn't see and so couldn't frive any further..

I created this thread coz most of us drive by in cars and don't even think when we splash the two wheelers with mud and muck as to what they would be feeling !!
I was unfortunate that I was on a two wheeler today !!
My ankle is gone, can't walk.. its all swolled up and my other injuries will take time but I am ok !!

This is most unfortunate but thankfully the accident was limited. I hope that you make a full recovery soon Manish. Take care and go to a hospital tomorrow.

I agree that many drivers are rash and have no road etiquette. They think that only they are users of the road and others be dammed. Unfortunately this whole attitude has become a part of our culture and needs to be changed.

Re: Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons

Wish you a speedy recovery bro. Yes often car drivers are careless and avoid slowing down during turns.
Alternately avoid the cars near puddles. I usually slow down and let the cars pass. However that's not always possible but can reduce the chances.

Re: Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons

Similar incident happened to me while i was on bike with my cousin and a moron in his Maruti Esteem intentionally splashed the muddy water on us while speeding away. Thankfully, we were able to stop the bike carefully. I still don't understand what fun people get by doing this kind of shit.

@ManISinJpr: Get a speedy recovery bro )

Re: Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons

Get well soon Manish. I have been at the receiving end of this menace more than once. Hence I personally take care of this when I am in the safety of a car.

Also, try and take some rest. Does wonders to the healing process.

Re: Please Drive Carefully, Respecting Others on the Road in These Monsoons

Thanks to all of you for your wishes... I am ok.. no broken but some soft tissue injury in my ankle..
ankle is pretty swollen up and some minor cuts etc.. but nothing that will last..

Sad to hear about your Father bro, people don't realize that their monsoon fun can be deadly for others I went and looked at the site where I had taken a fall and I was lucky !!! just 3 feet from where I fell there was a iron protrusion of a pipe from the hole !!
Thanked God !!!
