Default No bad roads, only indisciplined drivers

Here are a pair of Poland registered Japanese SUVs, somewhere in continental Europe -- a Nissan and a Suzuki.



Interestingly, the short wheelbase Suzuki 4x4 (I won't call it a Vitara. Sidekick may be more apt) sports a bumper-sticker comment in Marathi!



It says, "Back 'there', they don't have bad roads, only indisciplined drivers"

That's the actual marathi letters.

While what is said, is partially true (50% of the problem is bad drivers and the remaining 50% is tar connected pot-holes ), I think a sticker with the Indian flag next to it is in bad taste.

I agree, that sucks. I didn't get his point of writing this in Marathi on a car driven in Europe either

hehehe,.... the flag is for the patriotism in the right spirit, no one will understand a full saffron flag with a V-cut in Poland!!

then,... the idea of writing in marathi will be understood by you only if you are married to a maharashtrian like me

it is cultist; but natural.

absolutely no offences meant. i'm a part of it now,... renounced my state altogether.

P.S.: mods can please remove my post if it starts a riot

completely agreed and i remember reading this somewhere, the best safety feature in a car is "THE DRIVER", and human errors are the cause of the fatal accidents many a time, now i remember it was in the buggati veyron's accident blog!

kudos to the man to have that sticker on the suv, jai maharastra jai HIND!

I dont find anything wrong with that sticker. It's true. More than our roads, our attitude on them sucks.
