my advice to t-bhpians, stick to your lane and keep music that you enjoy (not radio). let the rest of the drivers zig-zag their way home. what many people don't realize is you CAN NOT beat the average speed of the traffic how ever clever you are.

some really crazy nut will always test your patience once in awhile, but there is little we can do unless a loaded gun is handy.
You are right. I lose my cool sometimes and feel guilty later.

Hi Guys,
We are on the wrong track here. We cannot eradicate this problem by talking to cops or RTO people. We can cure it by talking to school children. They are the future of India and if we educate them well on topics like moral duties, driving ethics etc then we can have a better tomorrow. We as team bhpians can teach our kids and their friends about the driving etiquettes and follow the same. Children are very sensitive. I was amazed by the number of children who did not burn crackers just because their teachers had told them that it causes lot of pollution.
Couple of months back, Delhi police fined lot of jay walkers. We need to have stricter rules and we can file writ petitions for that.

Its not about driving any more, as much it is about keeping your car from being scratched or hit by others users of the road!

Needed something to break the ice, brother. Atleast we have more posts now. Can' have t-bhpians overlook this thread. Should be kept alive. Might make a difference someday.
