Although high-speed experiences can provide an exhilarating experience, it is essential to conduct such activities in controlled environments like race tracks. Engaging in high-speed runs on public roads, especially in India, can lead to significant troubles and serious accidents.

Past instances have revealed that not only stray animals but also jaywalkers have been endangered by such videos. Operating vehicles at high speeds reduces reaction time, increasing the risk of accidents. Conversely, maintaining slower speeds grants riders and drivers more time to avoid potential collisions and brake effectively. Vehicles traveling at higher speeds require considerably more time and distance to come to a complete stop.

Adhering to the prescribed speed limits on Indian roads is vital for safety. Even when the roads appear empty, stray animals and cattle often roam freely, making them highly unpredictable hazards.

Updated safety in new Kia Seltos

Kia has prioritized safety in the new Seltos by equipping it with an extensive range of standard safety features. The SUV boasts six airbags, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), brake assist, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), VSM (Vehicle Stability Management), and all four disc brakes, providing optimal control and protection on the road. Additionally, features like hill assist control and rear parking sensors enhance convenience and confidence during parking maneuvers.

For those opting for higher variants, the Seltos offers even more safety enhancements, including traction control with multiple modes, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) level 2 features, a 360-degree camera, and a blind view monitor. With these added safety measures, the Seltos stands out as one of the safest SUVs in its class.
