Less than a month after the death of two passengers in the accident in which Reliance VP Jahnavi Gadkar was involved with a Audi Q3 car, another high profile accident was reported involving the actress and MP Hema Malini and her Mercedes Benz car in Rajasthan. Allegedly in this case also the driver of the german car was allegedly overspeeding, yet the passengers in the car escaped with relatively minor injuries, while a passenger in the other car died, in this case a baby less than 3 years old.
The high end luxury German cars have many safety features to cushion the passengers and driver in case of an accident, so even if the driver will drive the car rashly and cause an accident, they will often escape with relatively minor injuries. On the other hand the low cost cars like the Maruti Omni do not have many safety features, and the passengers may die in case of an accident, Hence the owners of luxury cars can afford to be careless.
So when these expensive cars are purchased the driver should be vetted to ensure that it will not be used carelessly and the penalty should be more severe in these cases.
