Tata-Benz trucks

Tata-Benz trucks

Built under licence in India these trucks are often grossly overladen. Drivers carry spare axles as so many get broken (!!) on poor roads and heavy loads.

    Amazing Photo Mike Bro. Those Benz engines can handle the extra load, it's just the axils that can't withstand all the extra weight. Has everyone fastened thier seatbelts? LOL

    Many years ago I drove across Northern India from Calcutta to Delhi and then into the Punjab. Axles are broken so very often and drivers build a tiny rock 'wall' so they can work inside and not be killed by other mad road users. Many times they don't bother to clear the scattered rocks away leaving them for unwary road users to crash over.

    When I saw the topic travel, I had a picture in mind like this Great Picture.

    I'm thinking, if they didn't carry all the spare axles, then the current one might not break so often... Nice composition...

    A unique shot, but not a great photo. Just my opinion. It would appear to be out of focus.
