Tractors.
They are everywhere in Noida. Occupying rightmost lane on the roads, so you have to overtake from the left where some Auto will be stuck. Many times why come from the wrong way at night without lights.

Talking Call center taxi thinking road is made for him

The call center cabbie who will honk continuously at you even though the road is choked in front of you. You are expected to give way so that you miss your turn and he can pass by. The technique I use now, is more he honks, the slower I go.

Hey, I agree with u totally on this .. I do the same too with these call centre cabbies !! They think they own the road and its their birth right to bulldoze thru .. even at night instead of just flashing the light once they insist on HONKING and that just pisses me off .

Usually I don't lose my cool on the roads but then there r times when u give another motorist the right of way and instead of smiling at u or waving he gives a glare as if he's done me a favor .. that really peeves me off !!

Cheers
