Performing stunts on public roads is illegal across the country but we seldom come across such cases from mountainous regions. A video of a girl performing stunts on the Parwanoo-Shimla NH5 has become viral on the Internet. The footage was captured by a passenger who was in a different vehicle.
The video shows a girl hanging out of the car while the vehicle was taking corners in the mountains. While the video is blurred, it seems like the girl opened the door and was hanging out of the vehicle from the co-driver’s door. Suddenly, the car loses control and hits the divider.

Since the speed was high, the car jumped the divider and was in the air for a few moments before hitting the guard rails on the opposite side of the road. The footage also shows the vehicle missed hitting another car in the opposite lane.
There were three people inside the vehicle and all of them were safe after the accident. In fact, they fled the accident spot. Locals informed the police after the accident but they could not trace the occupants of the vehicle. The accident happened at around 7 PM on Sunday.
All three occupants were spotted near the car wreck the next day. They were trying to arrange for a crane to recover the vehicle. However, the police reached the spot and detained all three of them. Dharampur SHO, Rakesh Roy said that the two boys and a girl came to the mountains from Chandigarh.
A case of negligent driving under Sections 279 and 337 of the IPC has been registered against the girl.
The police have started sending challans online so they do not need any physical presence at the time of the incident. A small clip of the violation or even CCTV footage is enough evidence for the cops to book the violator.
Even if you upload your own video while violating a traffic law or rule, you can receive a challan from the police. Doing any kind of stunts on public roads is illegal and the violators can even go to jail along with paying massive fines.
Doing stunts on public roads can land you in a spot due to various reasons. If anyone wants to practice stunting or want to record videos, it should be done on private property such as race tracks and even farmhouses. Also, one should take note that such stunts are extremely dangerous.
