I was ridin to amby valley yesterday. stopped by the lil bridge over the expressway curve. saw two volvo buses drivin quite fast.

this is the msrtc shivneri. the way he was overtakin another bus, that too on the curve, did seem dangerous

i have travelled in volvos around 10 times now (Blore-mlore, Davanagere-pune, pune-belgaum, belgaum-mum, mum-davanagere, davanagere-mum and 4 times b/w mum n pune..)
yes they do drive fast but i havent seen them bullyin others on the road, except once (neeta volvo, pune-mum)

i don't know why all are against Volvo. i've seen normal TATA buses doing 90-100 km/h on way to jalandher and patiala from ludhiana. problem is not the speed but the people who are behind the steering wheel and don't give a damn about peoples life who are in bus or outside.
sometime even i'm little rash in my DICOR and now i realize it when same happens to me(in indica) that i use to do with others.

1100d: i dont have the pics of what happ on the curve... the volvo must have been doing atleast 30km/h more than the tata.. and takin a curve perfectly like this (while overtakin another bus) aint easy. both the buses did come very close to each other

overdose: same here. as written in my post below, i have travelled so many times in volvos.. and m doing a 1500km return trip this weekend again in a volvo. i havent had issues with the way the volvo drivers drive
