Sorry, but i don't buy your argument of "settling then and there" funda. I am neither jobless nor the Police to do that. I am on the road, i noticed this happening on the go and managed to take a snap while the signal was red. It was drizzling, as you can see from the pic, and the last thing i want to do would be getting wet in the rain and teaching a moron that he is not supposed to use a mobile phone while driving, with the traffic from behind honking to glory.

Maybe people like you can risk it, Good luck!
no body is pointing any fingers at one. Rather judging people for their actions on road has become a general trend here

im not against safe driving or what not. But we are living in a country where even if you give your 100% while driving others will not oblige on road to put it in other words there is no suitable "moderation" on roads.

on a lighter note.

spotted a black i20 with the redline sticker with the number ending 8 inside MSR campus. Identify yourself if a member here .

I agree on this. This thread is ment for spotting fellow bhpian on the road. Lets not pin point and start criticizing him/her here on the forum which will absolutely do no good .

@ kaushik_s: Totally agree with you: "emergency situations when one is forced to drive fast and we would never know why someone is driving like that(unless you see that person everyday driving like that)"

I myself spotted couple of cars that had team bhp stickers and were zooming on the roads cutting lanes, i thought that there could be a reason for him to rip. Maybe he is late or had to rush to something emergency.

Anyways, fellow bhpian's Lets keep the spotting on and these things copuld be a one off case/instance.

Happy Spotting's

Spotted CorsaLove (aka Gautam) with his i20. Stopped by and had a small little hi/bye chat. Good meeting you mate.

A Honda City with a huge ferrari logo on the bonnet, are you a BHPian. A Lady was driving the car and you were on the navigator seat in Jayanagar 9th Block. I guess the lady saw the sticker on my car and indicated it to you and you were trying to figure out where the sticker was...

As far as I am concerned, I have forced my Dad to follow these rules, and when I'm old enough to drive, I too will.

It is not about T-BHP requiring only the safest drivers to registering on the forum. Even an educated non-TBHpian would know that talking on a phone while driving and driving without fastening one's belt are both illegal and unsafe, but still, many people do not follow these rules. I believe(d) that forums like TBHP could make people understand how important it is to follow these basic rules.

+1

I had already observed this long while ago. Why do we ever need to write something like this " Spotted XYZ, dude you were driving very well/why did you have to cut me like that etc etc etc "

I feel we should restrict this thread to ONLY spottings and pics of the stickers on vehicles, and nothing beyond, unless its an act really worth to compliment ! For complains, try to spot him/her again and have a direct encounter !

Spotted this Team-BHPian's car more because of the RUSH sticker on the windshield than the small Team-BHP one on the front number plate.

That is our car That was my sister driving (or maybe my mom). The passenger HAD to be my dad. If I was in the car, I would be driving

I also saw a black i10 today. Followed you from Jayanagar till Banashankari BDA complex. You have one Live to Drive sticker on the left side, one t-bhp sticker on the number plate and another TBHP sticker on the right side. I was in the red Getz behind you.

1st things first, it was not for you. Just an instantaneous reply after seeing many "Holier than thou" posts. Not for you post as I've not even noticed that part of your post.

No problem mate, cool down. It was not for your post anyway.

I do and thank you for your wishes. And also you might've missed the "if possible" in my statement. Sometimes ignoring a word or two gives a whole different meaning to some things. Anway, thanks for judging me just by reading a post in a different way that too meant for something else. Thanks.

@Mods: I know this post is off topic but I just wanted to clear myself so that DRIV3R doesn't end up having a wrong impression about my post.

No sighting today as I was at home whole day watching movies/football.

Guess it was your Dad. I thought of getting down and saying a Hi!, but since a lady was driving and daughter was acting cranky, moved on.

Hey V12 , please tell me that this spotting was a joke . Why didn't you mention that it's GTO's ride?

This was just on a lighter note. I love this thread.
