Unfortunately this behavior is now prevalent in the city. People think its their right to drive any which way they want. If you try to confront them, they just become aggressive and start abusing you.

If such behavior is not controlled then this menace will only increase. People don't think twice to just enter the wrong lane and start driving on the wrong side. Many a times I have seen that if there is a traffic jam, then instead of waiting, people immediately move to the other side of the divider and start driving on the extreme left lane. All you need is one person to do this and immediately you have hundreds following him/her.

Its a pretty sad state of affairs.

Read in the local newspapers that the traffic in Hinjewadi has become smooth due to the various steps taken by the traffic police.

The article also mentioned that daily commuters were now satisfied and happy. It featured the opinions of some commuters. Has it really become smooth ? What caused such a transformation ?

In other news - had a narrow escape today as a car jumped out from a side street without any heed to the traffic on the main road. I literally had to stand on the brakes to avoid hitting the car sideways. It was a lady driving so no expletives but just a hand gesture asking what are you doing lady

Cummon man! Give the cops the credit on making the rains go away. Thats the only thing which I feel has made the traffic smooth. If its smooth even after the next rains, then definitely they have done something. Lets wait and watch

I just checked if today is the first day of April

Normally during winters, a lot of folks in Pune switch to using 2 wheelers instead of cars. Also, many of us IT labourers try to finish off our annual holidays in December which cannot be carried forward.
Maybe it is a combination of all the above factors. Let us wait for the first complete working week in 2018 to see the real situation.

If they have indeed made some changes, the good times should last longer

They reduced the circumference of Wipro circle in phase 2 of Hinjewadi. It was a very big factor that made traffic flow smooth.

In few months, I am expecting the road to be 6 lane as work is progressing at good pace. Only obstacle are HV electric towers.

And yes, it has become smooth in morning. I generally leave from Pimple Saudagar around 0800 to 0815 hours on a bike to Hinjewadi phase 2 and my time to reach office is 20 minutes.

I remember on one rainy day in monsoons, every access road to Hinjewadi was clogged and myself and biker were discussing whether to bunk office that day!

Yes, many people opting for bikes after rainy season is also a reason for smooth traffic.

The trick in evening is to avoid when Infosys and Metro Zip buses are scheduled to leave. They clog sometimes the traffic.

My query is regarding current rioting thatís going on in Pune .


I stay in Kharadi and I could come to my office in Viman nagar without any incident. Nagar road stretch from Kharadi bypass till Phoenix mall is relatively empty, but no untidy situation.



But my wife has to take a cab to NIBM in the afternoon. She had to cross the Hadapsar area. So are Hadapsar and nearby areas also affected or that area is relatively safe. It would be much helpful, if anyone from Hadapsar or nearby area can update situation.

Colleagues from NIBM area have arrived in office via Hadapsar without any incidents in the morning. Looks like people are pretty much following their routine, though I am not aware of shops/ small businesses.
However, I would recommend checking again a little before the time of departure. You never know if some elements wake up a little later in the day
