Assalam o Allaikum
Those of you guys traveling for the first time through GT road Okara (specially at night with minimum traffic on the road). Please be advised there is a railway crossing without any signal or caution mark and that track is a little bit higher then road level.
That road bump makes newbies (who never drove through OKARA before) their cars fly in air for several feet and sometimes accidents or damage to car.
I know it for the fact because it happened to me.
I was traveling with my family in my 1992 toyota corona from LHR to MUL just second day after Eid - Fitr 2014 at night. Traffic was rare and I was going at fixed 120 KPH and overtake a 2013 Corolla (who eventually followed me in anger as I know he would). I am not an angry person specially when driving because it could get you killed or worse IT COULD KILL YOUR FAMILY that is traveling with you so I gave way on first horn.
Just a few second later that corolla hit that bump at more then 125 KPH and fly then dropped hard. the driver first loose control but eventually managed (Allah ka shukar) but he does got something broken out of his car and I am pretty sure it was one of the suspension (shock absorb) so he stopped immediately to check damage (no one was injured)
ME? well i am no super man and same happened to me but i got 2 advantages. 1. My car is much heavier then corolla 2. I got 205/70 tires that gives ground clearance almost equal to a Hi-Ace. SO we did take off but return smoothly without any damage to car or my family. I think this is where old but gold methodology paid off very well.
To people who traveling through Okara (I am not sure exact milestone or clear indications or surroundings to judge but Insha Allah next time I will add complete details. It might even save someone,s life). Please drive carefully
