Well I give a stare when some gets too close to the car in traffic, just to pass on the message that " dude keep away, you touch my car and I wouldnt mind smacking you ". The retard usually gets the message.

here is the history of the scars on my civic :
1. BTS bus makes a stop after monotype near kaverinagar?. i cant over take the bus, so i stop. bang. a 2 wheeler learner bangs into my rear bumper
2. outer ring road near dayananda sagar college. cyclist tries to overtake Civic !!! slips and falls down right in front of the car. i save him from death, but the cycle goes underneath my front bumper leaving quite big scar.
3. btm layout. tata sumo cab tries to sneak into bumper-bumper traffic behind me. leaves foot long rub.
4. jakkasandra. motor-cyclist on the opposite side of a pot holed road. i push him to the median to scare him off. both of us stop. he starts abusing. hits my front fender, then leaves another mark on the bumper before running away.
5
6.
7.

the list goes on. All the scars on my 9 month old civic are at 0kmph !

Tha way the traffic chaos is going i feel using a ric or a bus makes more sense. last week had to use buse for couple of days and saw how madning it was. people were showing stunts with the bus.

Today found the fairer sex using the footpath to beat the traffic near TV tower.

There was a traffic pile up near Munireddy Palya and found 2 girls(looked like college girls) riding their Activa on the footpath to get ahead in the traffic.

Wish there was some way to set up spike strips on the side-walks. get your bike on it, and out goes the air.

I guess some people have become so damned accustomed that they feel they should ride on the footpaths, whatever the time. Came across a moron on an Activa who was probably going to drop his kid at school. Despite less traffic on the roads (Time : 7:30AM) he still chose to use the footpath as a road.

Thats a good idea

Should have something like that.

What really scares me is people crossing anywhere they want, this can be dangerous especially at night.

My Car got a dent yesterday when some lunatic van driver hit her. The driver's door got a big dent. Nothing serious, couldn't catch that Moron as it was raining and he sped through the heavy traffic.

The same happend with me when my Aveo was barely a month old. I make sure to leave enough space on atleast one side of my car for 2 wheelers to move. This time I had no two wheelers around me at silk board signal and I started moving when I got a green. This moron in a yamaha bike comes from nowhere and hits hard on my left ORVM. I thought I lost the ORVM as I could not see it anymore. I got out of the car and this guy started saying sorry sorry. I went to the mirror and realised that it had just folded in the opposite direction (a feature in Aveo esp for Bangalore ). Luckily no stratches on the mirror or covering.

Ouch! That's sheer bad luck,praJEEP.
Did you get everything fixed? Hope the damage wasn't too bad.
Isn't the road in front of MPhasis the one that leads to Ulsoor lake? Is this Old Madras Rd?
