Motocyclette, Pas doubler dans gauche papao!!!

After spending a superb night camping in Flic en Flac with Nitin, Vissen, Elie, Ashley, Charles and Yash, I woke up at 10am and decided to return back home. I was feeling sick and could not stand the sight of bottles anymore.

So, I drove back home and on the way, I dropped 2 of them in Port Louis. And right in front of “Cinema Anand” in Triolet, a motocycle hit the side of my car while I was turning to my right. The picture below best describes the accident.

The motorcycle came out from nowhere and crashed right into the front passenger’s door of my car. I stopped the car immediately and got out to see what happened. Fortunately, the rider got up and was not hurt. And at that moment, I saw his police uniform on him. Yes, he was a police officer and he was overtaking other cars from the left…

Then, I parked my car a few meters away to discuss what we should do. My car did not get any scratch but his motorcycle was a bit damaged. I explained to him how he was at fault by driving in that way. He kept his mouth shut and asked me to accompany him to a garage to get his motorcycle repaired. I told him that I was not going to pay a cent from my pocket and if he wants, we can do a “Constat à l’amiable” or file a police case. We met in the police station where he refused to do an agreement between us.

I was OK for a police case since I knew that I was not the one to be blamed. As more police officers surrounded us to hear about the accident, I felt even more confident that I was not at fault. I refused to accept any guilt and the police officers there started to write down the details.

We got into a police vehicle and went to the accident spot for marking the point of impact. The rider (police guy) tried to give another version by marking a different point of impact so that he could trap me. I clearly said that it was much far away and the proof : Fresh traces of petrol could be seen at the point where he crashed into me and he fell off his motorcycle.

Then, we got back to the police station and after some 30mins, he sent another officer to tell me if I would agree to go on with an agreement (“Constat à l’amiable”). I said yes and finally, the guy decided that it was not so serious. I am sure that the reason behind this stepping down is that as a police officer, he knows that he will lose the case.

He told me that he is cancelling the case and there won’t be any need to do any agreement. Before I left the police station, we both signed in the diary book to set everything on paper.

And that makes another additional proof that confirms that I know how to drive confidently on the roads 😉

#FAIL and Shame at you, driving your 2 wheels carelessly despite being a police officer!

Sure, I lost nearly 2 hours today but at least, this accident gave him a small lesson about how he should be driving 😛

  6. Glad to hear there are no injuries. This is quite a common example of an accident due to negligence. The motorcycle rider must have seen that the traffic had stopped to let you turn but he still tried to pass at speed.

  7. Luckily no one gets hurt. mais ki fer to penser lassurance pa pu couvert ene rayure?? dude, im sure you are paying a lot to the insurance company to insure your car. so whatever damage/scracth resulting from an accident (in which you are not at fault) they will have to pay for the repair. dont let them bs you. im sick of their yearly premium increase and each year,they will come up with something to justify the increase. unless you are a manager/ceo/president of a company.

  11. What would you have done if
    (a) your car was damaged to some degree (more than a scratch)
    (b) the culprit (i.e. the policeman) gave another version of the accident (lying), thus incriminating you. For sure, according to your statement he was trying to find a way to incriminate you.

    My fiancée had a car accident on friday, a guy did not brake on a crossroad while waiting to have way and reversed (by failing to brake or balance his car) into her car. He then denied all accusation when he realised there were no real witnesses and that she was alone in her car.
    Thank God that there were no real damaged done.

    Yeah, the large difference between the markings showed that he was trying to set up something fishy. And finally, since he refused to go further with the case, he feared that he might be blamed for his driving…

    @Kavish : Fortunately, the police officers there were neutral. They did not try to influence my decision. And the motorcycle guy worked in a different region.
