Once, three men rode on bicycle to reach Guruprasad in Poona. They were intercepted by traffic police on the way but relieved on their explanation to police. However, when they reached Guruprasad, Baba scolded them for not abiding the traffic rules.
Once Meher Baba was returning to Satara after a visit to Poona and the car driven by Eruch suddenly got out of control and dashed against culvert and landed in a ditch at a place 12 miles from Satara, Meher Baba and mandali were seriously injured and Dr. Nilu died. The police filed a case against Eruch but the judge declared that the accident was an act of providence and only cancelled the driving licence of Eruch. Meher Baba respected the law and never permitted Eruch to drive car in later years.
