Impatience! Yellow light means "go as fast as you can before it turns red" to many people.

This is on the Hyd ORR. Second time with me. Could not capture the first time. A truck coming on the wrong side, on the fast lane, with high beams. Perfect recipe for a major disaster.

The three car drivers in the first video really deserved each other!

The second video shows what people should expect as the natural and expected consequences of blind or careless overtaking. Slightly surprised that the truck driver did not go on as if nothing had happened. . Hats off to the bus driver's skills.

So here’s a two wheeler guy I spotted today. Discreetly clicked this photo. Helmet hung onto the mirror, one hand holding handlebar & the other holding his kid sitting on his thigh. I wish I could add more of these. At least think about the safety of your kid, man!

- XUV driver tries to stay in the middle of both the lanes so that he can pick and choose at the last minute which lane to take
- At around 12 seconds in the video, a two wheeler with 3 people, another with 4 people, and yet another coming along the wrong side
- All 3 cars tailgating each other with magnetic attraction and taking turns at being the lead car.

Second video
- Guys in the back of the pick up truck. Forget seatbelts, they should be wearing animal harnesses. They trust the driver too much
- Blind overtaking by the pick up driver

Swissknife, to clear things, I meant to say that I wish I could add more of those smileys, which I couldn’t due to the 2 smileys per post rules. I certainly don’t wish to see more people doing this stunt

With the increased usage of dashcams, unfortunately it seems that we will only see more of such antics.
I would say the antics have always been there. It is just that we will have more evidence than only narrations

A recent trend I have been noticing around the streets of Chennai in vehicles equipped with DRLs, is the owner refusing to turn on the head lights even at night. The only reason I can think of for this, is the owner clearly feels that he has paid extra for the DRL feature and wants to make sure everyone notices it. I tend to see this a lot on the Baleno but definitely not limited to it.

Is this something others notice as well or am I just paranoid?

Yes, Of late I have been noticing this trend. My guess is, the drivers are just not aware that they need to turn on the headlights.

But, there are bunch of folks who simply drive their vehicles with parking lamps and bright HID/LED fog lamps purely for showing off

The audacity of this biker to even question the car driver is beyond ridiculous. Are they really that stupid to not even understand who is at fault here?

I have seen bikers making silly U turns or traveling in the middle lane and then taking a right, but look at where he comes from and then intends to take a U turn without even watching where he is going!



I had momentarily taken my eyes off the road and was looking in the mirrors and didn't notice what had happened. I thought the car driver had hit him from behind but when I looked at the dash cam footage I was baffled at how far from the left they came to take a U turn!

The second one is my fault. A near miss on the OMR.

Spotted this family today in Delhi.The rider was at a speed of 60km/hr.
Thought of telling him to stop and hold the kid properly, but couldn't catch him as he was very fast and making zig zag moves. Moreover i thought it wasn't safe to distract the rider.
