Ikon driver got what he deserved!

People like him who first drive recklessly & break all rules, then have the audacity to shout back, should be given the same treatment!

Felt good that better sense prevailed and it didn't lead to incident similar to old Pepsi advt. (janta nahin mera baap kaun hai? ; don't you know who is my father?)
Not sure about the road rage. Guy just thought a cyclist can be pushed all around. I've seen many taxi guys bully me out even when I go on my ford anywhere. They will honk incessantly when I patiently wait for red signal to turn green. Once an auto rickshaw guy started banging the boot of my car with his hand to move out of his way on a traffic light (when it was still red). Hardly 10% bikers stop at red lights.
And what's teh old pepsi advt? I don't have tv connection at home. I have world space radio (24 hours of music), a home theater system, a big tv and over 800 dvds!

Thanks for your support sir. somehow I feel that we are going back to being barbarians. I stopped on one of the US interstates because I noticed a pair of gopher tortoises crossing. I also managed to stop the Interstate traffic completely for the next 25 mins and all people got down and cheered the tortoises that were taking time to amble across the highway. People were taking photos as well! No one complained. In pune, I stop at red signal, I get abused by people behind me, who's path I block.

Default Re: No one looks at Traffic Signals in Pune

Marathi newspaper Sakal has taken this seriously and even carried a detailed photo feature. Here is the link with enough photos to prove that traffic police do not exist in PCMC.

Triple seat bikers, 10 seater illegal autos have crippled the traffic of PCMC and Pune.
