A little furious


It happened a few days back on Ewan-E-Iqbal, DHA, around 12 PM. Mostly people said that driver was drunk, but the true story was based on a bursted tyre, if you can see it in the picture.


I was shocked to see the pole completely encaging the car and you can see men at work, cutting the wires to release the car from wires and pole.

Here, this is very common during summer and tire bursts can be fatal specially with fast speed. People, take care of those circular things in your vehicles, and dont make them go furious in this heat, they do mind.

    as the left front side has hit the pole..
    there is a possibility that the tyre may have burst after the accident happened..

    but you didn’t tell about any injuries..

    whether the tire burst before or after, the driver was most likely drunk.
    The only way to lose control like this on a city street with burst is that you were going way above the supposed speed limit!!!

    I wonder why are we as a society so quick at drawing conclusions purely based on emotions and intuition?

    Whether the driver was drunk or not is not something that can be judged easily by merely looking at the photos.

    @Mani: I did not see anyone injured, driver’s side was not that much impacted, so i think he/all survived. I also did not notice any car owner there.

    @icecube: Is ko kahtai hein qoumi raway-ya. We like to make negative pre-perceptions.

    People who were gathered there were talking about the drunken driver. The labor cutting the wires told about the tire burst.

    @Nosheen: Yeah, by taking care of the old tires specially, you will also take care of other’s lives as well as yours.
