Ultra safe

jugaad 10

If you have had an accident and the boot of your car is damaged, what would you do? Get the boot changed right. But if you don’t want to do that, you can always put a lock on it so that it doesn’t open. This is how innovative we are.

Safety Conscious

Since car safety has been a topic of discussion lately, this driver has taken it to an all new level. Since he couldn’t get an aftermarket airbag for his vehicle, he has resorted to another more literal form of the air bag.

Three wheeling

Even though a bike is only supposed to seat 2 people, it is very common to see 3-4 people seated on bike. But if you want to transport more people, all you need to do is add another wheel at the back and you have an extended bike, just like in the movie ‘Golmaal’.
