I would like to thank all the tbhpinas for making a difference in my motoring life. Though i have been driving since i completed 11 years, getting trained by the drivers we had employed. I always had this thought that i was an invincible driver. I used be a very fast driver and at times very RASH(because of my road rage), i have never scratched my car(touch wood) despite a lot of close calls which includes the "yamadharma rajas" of the Indian roads. I always get in to a road rage using abusive, foul language, sometimes even uncontrollably infront of my parents.
After being a passive reader of this forum , i find a lot of change in my driving style, i would say i have graduated in to a matured driver.This means i have un hooked my rash driving part, with the speed part still there.My road rage has come down drastically and im really proud of it now. My wife is really surprised by this change(She also plays a vital role in reducing my road rage). Poor soul She learnt all the foul and unparlimentary language (in English, Tamil, Malayalam) from me. For this i owe a lot to this forum and all he tbhpians, I really salute everyone out here for making a change.
Now i find a relaxed myself driving.(Peace and calm prevails inside my car. More happier to drive and really enjoying the drives)

What you have felt is the Team-BHP effect, which has happened to many of us here too, including myself. Good to know that this forum has had the same effect on you too. cheers

@Mag & evo8 , count me also in. Used to be this aggressive driver. Since I have joined t-bhp my attitude has also changed on the roads. Sobered down a lot, got rid of my so called invincible attitude towards cabbies, auto drivers, BMTC bus drivers et all....
Tend to give everyone a chance to realize their mistake and not growl at the very 1st instance. Needless to say I insist on driving with the seat belts now, be it family, frends or colleagues.Thanks to Team-BHP.

Yes, my driving style too has changed. I don't drink & drive anymore.
No thanks to TBHP for that though - my crotch warmed Chablis was getting cold again due to my air-con. Something which I don't enjoy. Hence I stopped.
