Take a look at this Maruti WagonR that is sitting atop a Hyundai Elite i20. But how did it happen? Read here to know.
Driving a car isn’t as easy as it looks like. It not only requires attention but muscle memory as well. While being attentive is considered important, muscle memory and reflex actions are often ignored. However, this ignorance can put folks with a lot of costs to pay later. Here’s a set of images, which showcases the same. In the images below, a Maruti WagonR can be seen sitting atop a Hyundai Elite i20. Before you folks start wondering, how did the WagonR landed over the Elite i20, we tell you. It happened because of not-so-great brain reflexes or muscle memory of the driver. He slammed the accelerator pedal in place of the brake pedal.
While all of this happened as a mistake, this incident highlights the importance of muscle memory and brain reflexes. Talking of the damages, the Maruti WagonR has suffered minor ones. The front right fender of the WagonR is damaged, and so is the case with the front bumper. The Elite i20, on the other hand, can be seen with a damaged bonnet as the WagonR rests on it. Moreover, its front left fender has suffered damages. Fortunately, the WagonR did not topple on its side after climbing over the Elite i20, which would’ve increased the extent of the damage on the WagonR.
The driver of this WagonR seems to be holding a learner’s license as an ‘L’ sign is visible on the rear windscreen. Moving over to the importance of muscle memory and reflex actions, they cannot be inherited. They have to be developed with practice, instead. Almost everyone makes a mistake while learning, which is completely acceptable, even in this case. Although, the WagonR driver should have decided to practice at a place away from residential complexes.
Maruti WagonR is the brand’s entry-level hatchback and is on sale in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs. 4.45 lakh. It is offered with two engine options – 1.0L petrol and 1.2L petrol.
