    No need to verify the condition of the vehicle. The time of accident tells half of the story. Driving under influence remark is left to post martum report.

    it is absolutely suicidal to drive vehicles for long distances in India....bigger vehicles like buses are the best option though not out of danger totally....driving in the night is like dancing with the death....no sense and most of the drivers driving trucks and pick ups are drunk....really tragic...and scary too....life is so cheap in third world countries and no strict law plus policemen corrupt to the core...
