Very true indeed. As if Tata Aces and AshLey Dosts were no enough, now this.

A simple drive from Hebbal all the way till Windsor Manor and everyone will agree to what you mention - All 3 lanes occupied by these slow moving LCVs, crawling at 20 KMPH and then they struggle to climb those quick flyovers on the Magic Boxes till here. Now I don't wish there is a Bus or a Cab strike, I wish there should be a day when LCVs are on strike.

True.

One thing I have noticed about UAE and Dubai in general is that inspite of being a small country with high vehicular population, the traffic still remains reasonably light. Reasons being -
  • No underpowered vehicles to slow you down. Even the trucks are powerful and easily cruise at 60-80 kmph on the normal roads and 100 kmph on the highways.
  • Streamlined traffic with reasonable lane discipline.
  • Not too many junctions, signals or intersections which may slow down traffic. Instead they use flyovers and ramps at junctions to send vehicles in the other directions, which keeps the traffic moving.

I see this more often with category of around less than 1T pay load. Anything which is around 1.5T and above are better. Also I dont think Dost is actually crawling.

Seen them doing 100 KMPH consistently on many occasions on straight lines and yes this is perhaps the fastest of most of these LCVs!

Else, it is always crawling on that fast lane climbing that flyover.
