WHY MR SAID MUST AMEND THE RULES FOR HIGH SPEED AS WE HAVE NEW ROADS
Mohamed Saturday, 15 June 2013 04:54 AM
You are absolutely right...
Minister Saturday, 15 June 2013 05:07 AM
So the proposal to allow speeding is not so pragmatic in today's context!
rehan Saturday, 15 June 2013 07:39 AM
under the new system we are allowed 1000CC motor bikes and also high speed cars. thats why the taxes were brought down.
speed was encouraged.

Defender unrecognizable mean speed could have been nearly 160 180 in straight road
MNS Saturday, 15 June 2013 05:39 AM
Perhaps they have not heard, in most cases this is how they drive!
Speed thrills, but kills!

How come the jeeps coil spring came off on the road, while the vehicle off the road?

Look at the beautiful sourroundings. So enchanting. I have travelled along this way. I never drive beyond 40Kmph in these place as the environment mesmerises. Had they jsut enjoyed the environment instead of speed we wont be commenting here.

MORE EXPRESS HIGHWAYS MEANS MORE ACCIDENTS AND DEATHS THERE WERE ALSO TALKS ABOUT TO ALLOW SPEEDING. WHAT A SHAME. ALLOWING SPEEDING IS DIRECT ACCESS TO HELL.

"MORE EXPRESS HIGHWAYS MEANS MORE ACCIDENTS AND DEATHS"
Of course people who do not care for the lives of other road users, and of their own will perish this way. Who's fault is it.

Yes, but it's sad the responsible army officers are behaving like this in public roads.

May be the driver was testing how fast the vehicle can run.Poor lives.
Porky Pig Saturday, 15 June 2013 04:10 AM
Just look at the state of the vehicle. At what speed was it traveling. These guys think the roads are race tracks and it belongs to them. Fall out of the night races.
ANTON Saturday, 15 June 2013 04:09 AM
FROM THE PHOTOS WE CAN IMAGINE HOW FAST THEY DROVE THE VEHICLE, I THINK 120 KMPH HAD BEEN EXCEEDED.
