I must admit that I have a lot of respect and a warm & soft corner for other Bulleteers on the road, although I do admit that not all of them deserve it.

agree. Indica turbo/dicor owners get my full respect on the road. No love for the regular diesel and petrol versions though :P

Basically I respect all the other vehicles on road. I usually like peaceful driving.

I'm a bit careful with Buses, Autos, 2Wheelers and Cycles. I always give them way to pass through.

oh yeah i do respect same car drivers..especially OHC and vRS. Infact i avoid dragging with these cars, its only with different cars that you have the excitement to show who's car is more fast and stuff..
i generally give way to OHC's when i'm driving OHC but i smell blood if i see someone dragging in lets say baleno or accent or even NHC
with my vRS it depends on my mood, generally i drive it sedately and give proper ways to others but if i'm in a mood to drive fast then no one else wud outdrag

For me, the car does not matter, sensibility of the driver is what matters.

I'd have to be a real Mr. Nice Guy to treat other OHC & Indigo owners special; Mumbai is full of them! And the only C's I see are driver driven.

Though I admit, in the rare situation that I come across another CJ3B / CJ340 / Classic, it's always a friendly wave.

Each time i see a Verna I show lot of respect and a warm & soft corner. I even give way, This also applies to Civic's

I get out of the way of buses and auto's, cannot predict which way they will turn.

I doubt that. Every time I have been next to another Lancer, they're always looking to zoom off sooner than me.

lady drivers and driving school cars are the ones i give a most sympathy on.i know they find it most difficult to cope up with the surrounding.
the former do not get as much importance if i have observed them doing any rash driving.
