Based on online sources, the Toyota Fortuner is an expensive vehicle to purchase, costing over Rs 30 lakh . It is also an extremely expensive vehicle to own, with insurance alone costing approximately Rs 1 lakh annually. There are low end vehicles available for less than Rs 3 lakh, so only those who are really wealthy can afford to purchase the Toyota Fortuner, and spend Rs 1 lakh annually on insurance alone.
One of the most dangerous and reckless drivers in panaji, was spotted driving a silver grey Toyota fortuner with number plate E9942 on the lake view colony main road, in campal, panaji, goa at around 5.55 pm on 31 October 2018
The driver of the vehicle was driving so fast, that no one on the footpath could get any details of the person driving the vehicle.
While there are many two wheeler drivers who are overspeeding, it is not very dangerous because the vehicle is small, and people crossing the road can easily avoid the two wheeler.
However the Toyota Fortuner is a very large and heavy vehicle weighing more than 1900 kg, it is very difficult to avoid the vehicle, especially if it is driven well beyond the speed limit.
Campal area is under aerial surveillance and the footage of the reckless driver should be available with security agencies.
The vehicle costs approximately Rs 30 lakh which is far more than the cost of most other other vehicles, so the driver may be very rich, well connected arrogant. Hence action should be taken against the reckless driver of the silver grey Toyota Fortuner E9942 at the earliest, his or her driving license should be suspended at the earliest.
It is hoped that the traffic sentinels, especially in panaji, goa keep a look out for the reckless driver of the silver grey Toyota Fortuner E9942 , issue a challan at the earliest, and ensure that the vehicle is never driven recklessly in future
The insurance company offering car insurance to the driver of the Toyota Fortuner should also increase the insurance premium charged for the vehicle if the driver is caught violating traffic rules , overspeeding.
