A lot of BEST buses ply on routes that have one to one and a half lane for the most part.

Shabana Azmi, Medha Patkar and some other considerate ladies will stage a dharna, block the demolition squad, demand that every hawker be rehabilitated, and soon Bombay will have a few malls that sell everything from bhel puri to bananas. Did you not hear about the guys at National Park shifted to some towers in Chandivali? I mean, Mumbai's middle class incur a lifetime of debt getting accomodation like that.

Rickshaw drivers must contribute the least to fatal accidents. I'd say they generate more business for hospitals than cemetries. If anyone needs to be killed, its the rickshaw wallahs themselves, everytime they veer out of a double parking spot with no indication.

But seriously,

In addition to all the above, the cabs!? Everytime I'm in a hurry to get someplace, there has to be a cabbie perched atop a flyover with his broken ride and a trail of small rocks behind it, merrily pondering his POA while there is a mile long queue of vehicles snaking their way around it. They should seriously dump old cabs. Cabs are too affordable, in my opinion. It defeats the purpose of public transport.
