Unhappy

I bet, just drive your car from Khanpur, Ambedkar Nagar to Moolchand Crossing around 9am. You will feel the reality. Public money wasted wisely, but named it BRT (Be Right There-always in jam)

I don't know if its different now, but the road challenge among me and my colleagues was to drive a 2wheeler from Ashram to Kilokri. People who've gone through the stretch would know precisely why the survey came to such a conclusion.

Moolchand has arguably claimed more lives than any genocide/epidemic ever had. So much for public transport.

Being a Delhite I am not at all surprised. We are the worst behaved people on roads.

Hehe. Knowing Delhiites, they would be furious at being fifth in the list and not first.

In my opinion Delhi (New Delhi atleast) is light years ahead of cities like Hyderabad, Bangalore & Chennai. South Indian city traffic is a nightmare.

I was impressed the last time i visited Delhi. They probably have the largest lanes & their traffic is hardly ever standstill.

BTW Bangalore has by far the most one ways in India and they never move an inch.

Why that would be Kolkotta. There the direction you take a particular road depends on the time on your watch. If you used a road at 11 Am you are never sure if you can use it at 2PM. It will become a one way. Atleast this used to be when I visited. Its a nice city otherwise. Most cities in Goa will have one ways only and many will be without signs.
