Talking Essential Guide: Stuff not to do while Driving

Have you ever wondered what "not" to do while driving fast or slow??

some good ones:
1. Do not brush your teeth
2. do not engage in any sexual activities
3. Check out the girl in the balcony drying clothes while you pass by blaring music
4. Fall asleep
5. Write the words "HELP ME" in red paint on the rear windshield.
6. Have conversations looking at the passenger seat while you are driving alone
7.when you stop at the lights keep revving the car and look back and forth between the next car and ahead. make guttural animal noises.
8. Get down to light a cigarette


feel free to enlighten us with more donts

Kya sir, you forgot not to assess other drivers while doing back seat driving in other people's car.

Don't try changing tyres. Or windscreen washer fluid.

Driving time is also not a good time to check the roof of your car for any dents from last night's hailstorm.

Nice one Amit.

To add a few more to the existing list.

1. Do not change your clothes.
2. Do not spit outside the car.
3. Do not read girlfriends message on the cell phone.
4. DO NOT DRINK.


Btw there was this funny thing I had seen when I was in 12th grade, a guy driving without his shirt on. Freaked me out.

reminds me of a case where somebody suffered deep bites when the car passed over a bump.

I recently happened to see a man teaching his daughter how to drive a Santro. Just that she was sitting on his lap and must have been at least 60 kilos!

Do not have water bottles on the dashboard or near the driver side. Cannot say whey they might fall down near the brakes and jam them.

Do not play around with the ICE settings while driving, very easy to lose concentration on the road.

Do not try to adjust your seat while driving.

Do not turn back, when someone from the rear seat talks to you.

Do not watch an accident spot while driving or stop and watch it on the middle of the road. Keep your eye on the road. Many people like you would have stopped to watch or will be watching and driving. So you either hit somebody who has stopped to watch or somebody who is watching while driving hits you,. Highly confusing right.

O.T: Somehow have a feeling this thread is headed the Dung thread way.

Do not abuse the autorickshaw driver on your right by sticking your head out while your car is still moving. My friend was abusing the auto driver and rolled into a Santro in front.

Do not drive into donkeys/sheep. Not only will they get hurt but your car will need a new bonnet. Had to change my Lancer's bonnet thanks to a donkey. If your non-veg you'll probably get a good biryani if you mow down a herd of goats.

Don't stare at good looking girls while waiting at a traffic light listening to the radio like N_C. lol.
