Bikers riding on roads and highways without following traffic rules are quite common on our roads. In order to bring down the number of accidents and track traffic violations, authorities have now installed surveillance cameras on roads. They often look into social media for viral videos to identify traffic rule violations. Even then, there are people who do not take things seriously and flout rules. This often leads to accidents on the road. Here, we have a video where three friends riding on a Yamaha MT-15 crash into a Mahindra Bolero pick-up.
The video has been shared by Prateek Singh on his YouTube channel. It was originally shared by one of his subscribers from West Bengal and was recorded on the helmet camera of the rider who shared the video.
In this video, we can see the biker riding on a highway, maintaining a constant speed and not riding rashly. Suddenly, he is joined by a Yamaha MT-15 biker on his side, who has two passengers with him on the bike. None of them are wearing helmets.
The biker dangerously overtakes from the left and even manages to escape from the police at one point. All of these actions were recorded on the helmet camera of the rider. The rider even mentions that the MT-15 rider was intentionally doing stunts in front of his vehicle to get recorded on the camera. There were several instances where the MT-15 rider and his friends narrowly escaped accidents. However, after several risky attempts, their luck ran out.
As this was a highway, there were other vehicles on the road as well. At one place where traffic was moving slowly, the MT-15 rider overtook the vlogger and attempted to perform a risky maneuver. While planning the move, he forgot to look forward and didn’t notice the Mahindra Bolero pick-up slowing down in front of him. By the time he realized it, it was too late. He applied brakes, but because he had more people on the bike, the brakes weren’t efficient.
The MT-15 comes with ABS, so the front wheels did not skid; however, the rider’s face crashed into the metal door at the back of the pick-up. His friends sitting on the pillion seat also crashed into the rider. It is clear from the video that the rider hit his head or face first on the metal door. The video does not provide more information related to the extent of injuries. Hopefully, the rider and his friends are not seriously injured. Another thing that worked in favor of the triple-riding friends is that there was no vehicle behind them. If that were the case, injuries might have been slightly more severe.
This video is a perfect example of how one must not behave on the road. Two-wheelers are meant only for two people. Always ride a bike or two-wheeler with proper riding gear and maintain the speed limit. It is also unclear whether the riders were caught and if any fines were issued for their irresponsible riding and traffic rule violation.
