My confession : I cannot control myself from going into Accelera mode(refer to my avatar for info :P) when I am on Marine Drive or Worli Sea Face/Link in the wee hours of the night.

Default Me too,pal

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

Me too, pal, at times. But not wearing seat belt --strictly no no, particularly after the day when I had to pay hefty fine and lost one day's leave for getting my license back

i over take from the left only when i cant from the right and the guy ahead of me is litllery crawling.
yell at cabbies who double park and sometimes even triple park and cause a huge taffic jam behind.
overspeed often.what do you expect with speedlimits like 30 and 40 kmph.
ALWAYS WEAR MY SEATbelt and make sure the others specailly the one in front is too.flash high beam on those morons who think driving with high beam is perfectly fine.

1) Overtake from the left. Is there anybody who doesn't do that?
2) Curse ALOT!!! I hate it when people ahead of me are just doing everything wrong when I am doing everything right LOL
3) Break the speed-limit. Each and everytime I drive I go to 80 so I really don't know what to do. But in my defense, I only do so in places/roads I am familiar with, like Worli/Marine Drive.
4) One thing that is the worst is that I'm a very start/stop driver. I tend to go to high speeds quick and then brake. I don't know how many people will explain this but its a very bad driving skill and am learning to control it.
5) WAS an underage driver. Now am legally allowed to drive.
6) Bribe the cops all the time. Till date I have only ever given up my license once that too when it wasn't my fault so thought might as well pay up and not let the cop earn money.

Sahil, NC is speaking the truth. He actually drives very casually and slowly these days. Believe me, I have seen it.

pretty much all of the above, at various points of time!
Truly, am kinda sane inside of a car because there's only so much Bangalore traffic can let one do. On the bike, behind a smoke spewing truck, I have this manic urge to get past to better air so bad I have ridden extremely irresponsibly to achieve that. Shall try and be more careful now that this thread has made one conscious of it.

On the highways I feel much better, safer and pretty much drive/ride well most of the time.

heres my list -

the following is subject to my Rash mood:

-do whatever it takes to overtake (even go into the oncoming lane)
-straight line turns (at nights when roads are empty)
-Wheelspin upto 2nd while launching from stop lights
-do doughnuts
-race myself trying to beat my previous time to a destination
-cut lanes
-use handbrake to slide into narrow lanes (not exactly drift)
-Drink and drive
-do inner city sprints with friends


the probability of the above is 3 out of 10

I have been wearing seatbelts ever since cars started coming with fitted with them.
I dont drive when i am High.
I dont play loud music.
I dont honk endlessly.

Well here are mine
1. I overtake from the left
3. Honk at times when the driver at front doesnt give me way
5. I do overspeed withint the city cos it feels good and looks cool :-)
6. Don't wear my seatbelt at times simply cos humans have a bad memory
7. Turn on my high beams at anyone who's on high beams coming in the opp. side - just to show them how it feels from my side
8. Break a few signals at times...cos the roads are empty so no point in waiting
9. Change lanes without giving indicator... only sometimes though
