Lightbulb Confessions of a Team Bhpian

Hi All,

I have started this thread for all the Bhpians who would like to confess on what they do wrong on road while driving their four wheelers or riding their bikes, be it breaking the rules, road rage, not being courteous to pedestrains and other smaller than thou vehicles on the road.

Well here is mine
1. I overtake from the left a lot, mostly when there is slow moving traffic on the right lane who don't give a damn and stay there crawling
2. Shout at every biker, auto walla, other vehicles who come to the wrong side of the road - road rage personified
3. Honk at times when the guy in front doesnt give me way and this only when he/she can definitely move to the side and let me pass
4. Don't encourage beggars (especially kids) and at-the-signal vendors
5. I do overspeed withint the city just for the kicks
6. Don't wear my seatbelt at times
7. Flash my high beams at anyone who's on high beams coming in the opp. side
8. Sometimes am not courteous to pedestrains with traffic breathing down my neck
9. Look like I'm in a hurry when travelling long distances, I do say I am a careful driver and dont take too many risks but am reckless at times

Well thats about it, lets see you BHPians come out with your confessions hope to see some interesting ones.

I am sorry, i DO NOT intend to offend anyone with the above confessions and would like you all to keep your suggestions on any confessions made in the thread to yourselfs only. Thanks

Moderators delete the thread if you feel this dont make no sense here in the forum,

1. I overtake from the left a lot, mostly when there is slow moving traffic on the right lane who don't give a damn and stay there crawling -- Me too

2. Shout at every biker, auto walla, other vehicles who come to the wrong side of the road - road rage personified -- I'd like to buy an old truck and run them over

3. Honk at times when the guy in front doesnt give me way and this only when he/she can definitely move to the side and let me pass -- Me too

4. Don't encourage beggars (especially kids) and at-the-signal vendors -- No beggars. But if I want what the vendor has, I buy it

5. I do overspeed withint the city just for the kicks-- Not for kicks. Not unless it's an emergency.

6. Don't wear my seatbelt at times -- NEVER

7. Flash my high beams at anyone who's on high beams coming in the opp. side -- Planning to put 200 watt lamps for these idiots

8. Sometimes am not courteous to pedestrains with traffic breathing down my neck -- Never

9. Look like I'm in a hurry when travelling long distances, I do say I am a careful driver and dont take too many risks but am reckless at times -- Almost never

Very brave of you, Anarchist. Appreciated. Here is mine:
1. Overtake from left when there is no choice left for me.
2. Sometimes i drive on the extreme left of the road just so that no two wheeler can overtake me from left (yeah yeah hypocrite is the word u r looking for). Of course they are free to overtake me from the right side.
3. I change lanes. Of course they are imaginary lanes but still...
4. I do overspeed within the city, whenever i get a chance.
5. I am overspeeding on the highways all the time (assuming the limit is anywhere between 60 to 80 kmph ).
6. On twisty roads i forget there are others in the car too.

Cheers
Amitoj

Here are mine :
1. Overtake from the left , provided its clear and safe ..
2. Get to naughty works when we are out late in the nights , provided we have competitive cars and the roads are EMPTY..
3. Yell at others who drive like mad if im riding shotgun (a few members got really irritated by this ) ..

I guess thats about it ..

Interesting thread!!
My driving is mostly near my house but...
In car:
Crazy wheelspins,never at junctions but when people block me off.
Drive onto ppl with high beams till the stop or dim their lights.
Screech the tires on turns if the road is dead empty.;well tats bout it in the car.......
On the bike(kinetic)
Crazy turns scraping the sides of the bike.....again provided the road is empty.
Overtaking on the left is done often only if there is no left turn comin up.
Overtaking people on 1 wheel just for kicks!!!
Tats it

binz
i know its very crazy stuff but...........

One confession from you would have been enough - I indulge in underage / illegal driving!

Hmm me very guilty.
1. Try to mow down smaller vehicles who jump red lights and cross my path
2. Honk like crazy at fools going at 40kmph in rightmost lanes of highways
3. Smoke treatment for red light honker
4. Driving towards people who are coming with high beams, or putting on high beam myself for such people
5. Overspeeding, but make sure its empty road!
6. Overtaking from left. Cant help this. even on expressways there will be people going at 40kmph at rightmost lane, when the speed limit is 90kmph

Overall I need to cool down and not loose temper. Earlier I used to shout and abuse people on road, but have stopped that, now I just get angry, dont do anything.
