Ooops that was close!!!
Something similar happened with me when i was on my way to Mangalore, not very far from Nelamagala lots of truck were piled up on that road(thanks to 4laning work) .. i was overtaking a lorry, when suddenly he changes lane and comes to right.i honked crazily...guess missed by inches... later i kept myself in left lane as thier was too much lorry traffic...another guy who was on the right lane thought he will switch to left not even bothered to see if someone was their, this made me get off the road...
guess that particular day my horns were used extensively and also learnt that they were not very effective

this is a common phenomenon on Indian roads chevy lover. its happened to me as wel only thing is that i was doing around 8--90 on my 800, which has the least powerful brakes around, so you can imagine the spot i was in anyways, i have learnt a lesson and always keep a safe distance behind all vehicles, especially when doing high speeds! i refuse to let good highways lull me into a false sense of security. And truckers are the worst guys on the road, for sure!

Yesterday one of the 'mazdoor' trucks laden with bricks overturned while overtaking a cycle wala, and crushed the cycle also. It happened near my house, I wasn't there when it happened, but when I was passing by the spot 15 - 20 minutes later, i saw the cycle totally crushed into scrap metal, hope the cyclist survived. The truck was on its side as well, with its load strewn all over the road.
seeriously these 'mazdoor' trucks sometimes really get on my nerves, but i can't do anything with my 'chota bachha'

Agree. Truck drivers are well behaved in Highways.
Except few (There are exceptions to everything)
Other important ones are private Bus drivers (sometimes Govt Bus drivers too)
