i ride my bull everyday from andheri (a suburb in mumbai) to worli. roughly a distance of 18 km one way.

acc to me these people should be shot dead with a BAZOOKA on the spoth and if a bazooka is not available. . .a shot gun atleast.

1) taxi drivers.
2) Auto Rickshaw drivers.
3) the Local transport trucks.
4) Taxis for bpo employees
5) Private taxi drivers.
6) Jay walkers who think they can cross the road regardless of the speed the vehicle is coming or regardless which place are . . .and expect car or bike driver to stop.
7) morons who spit out from the buses and cars.
8) Cyclewallahs.

was stopped at a checkpost.
asked to show the bike's RC and my license.

Cop looks at my license and says, yeh Chennai ka license hai, Hyderabad ka kahan hai.
I tell tim, bacha dikh raha hoon kya.

Second cop comes and tells me in a very polite tone, that I need an Andhra license and points to the line in my license, which shows issued by TN.

Finally an inspector comes over and says, You go.
I am laughing by now, and he says that these two are new recruits, don't know any better.

As I am leaving, I overhear another cop telling these two;
mian, hyderabad main, rajasthan ka license chalta, madras ka license bhi chalta and so on.

people who slowly drift into your lane with out their knowledge, deadly like a swinging yorker in cricket


also an other confession, the thing that makes my day is to see two autowhallas or a call center indica and a sumo etc in a minor fender bender and fighting with each other. I know I am being evil , but it does put a spring in my step

a very good one :-)

as for me, almost all autowallahs,RTC bus drivers(they are even more adept at sudden right turns/movements),IT indica/qualis/sumo/..etc.,. cabs(normal cabs -read tour operators-are not that bad),scooterists/bikers on rightmost lane- these are the fellas ,without whom even a 50K car on the roads will not cause traffic problem.

IMO, trucks and trailers in Pune city roads are a big nuisance. They are the chief architects of traffic snarls at most major junctions. These trucks/trailers are the ones who are heading towards Solapur/Hyderabad and are forced to pass through the city for the lack of a outer ring road/bypass for Hyderabad. Can't really blame these truckwallahs, but they cause a lot of heartburn for sure!

In Mumbai city proper there is no problems of autos and stray animals and ricks.The only problems there are pedestrians and taxis.In the suburbs in addition to evertyhing I mentioned already the constant digging of roads is also a nuisance.Im sure all mumbaikars will agree with me.
