Angry Hit n Run in brigade road.

Yesterday(sunday) night i was waiting for parcel in my car opposite to empire restaurent.I saw a green coloured bus going down the road at mad speeds.It looked very scary.And at the junction(near to the petrol pump) it hit a maruthi esteem and went without stopping.The esteem looked seriously damaged and the passengers i hope is not seriously injured.The time was around 1pm.

These kind of drivers should be hanged........

I am betting that the driver of the green bus would be drunk.

Apparently, what kinda bus was it? long distance? a mini bus / a volvo ? a company bus for pushing around employees?

Thats what happens when you have crazy people handling such vehicles.
I wish someone had chased the bus/van,and atleast noted down the regn.number.

I have literally seeen the bus drivers sleep at the wheel, eyes open Cubbon Road BLR. That scared the **** out of me.

Add to the list are the call centre cab drivers who live their lives in cars. You can make out the driver sleping at the wheel by the cars deceleration even when the road before him is empty and doesnt maintain his constant speed.

There were passengers in the bus, I was coming in the opposite direction, Hence I could easily make out that the driver is sleeping, nodding his head. Wonder if the passengers in the same bus saw the driver sleeping, I wonder.

I keep a furlong away from BLR busses ?

If thats the case most of the people sleep in bangalore... (Pun intended)

Yeah, always keep away from cabs and busses give them way so that they are ahead of you, or step on the gas so they dissappear from your rear view mirror
