My experience had been the same. Interestingly it is the same both in US and India. Initially the problem was only with chinese women, later realized even other nationals are similar.

I was stopped at an intersection in H'bad for a right turn, one lady in Wagon R on my left was chatting away to glory with friends, I had to honk hard when there was hardly an inch of space left between our cars. She looks at me questioningly and drives away non chalantly, I almost felt like a .

Folks driving around playing the my_muisc_system_can_make_the_most_noise game. Irritating as well as hazardous.

Imagine a Lady Driver with 1 1/2 kid in lap driving on Marathalli Bridge at 7:00 PM stuck in Jam without ORVMS. Doesnt she care about her life or of the kid ? Kid was playing with the controls on the steering and all

Thats whats happening in Airport Road BLR. Majority of the fairer sex appear not to use RVMS under any circumstances. Pardon me if I hurt anyone sentiments

Drivers with both their Side mirrors shut, and u cant contain them. The only way to avoid getting into a bump with them is to keep your distance.

Cool

well almost all drivers have grown to become bad drivers today and as lady drivers are far and few, the probability of spotting a bad lady driver (amongst the few that exist) is higher and the probability of spotting a good lady driver is at its lowest The numbers are too few to have a mass justification that women are as bad drivers or worse than men.

cheers,

1st sign: OVRMs closed
2nd sign: Cutting into my lane
3rd sign: Turn without indication
4th sign: Come fast & break hard, so that the car jerks back & forth.

Better to stay away from such drivers, even if its a minute late for you.

Even gents do it that way!!
But really, cars have no business doing such things.
It MUST be a verrrry bad driver inside.

And here I must confess: I am a middle-aged 'uncle' and I chuck my cigarette ash out the window of my car. Please someone tell me it's not that big a crime. Promise I NEVER spit nor ever throw out litter.

Winter mornings in Delhi, temps down at maybe 4 deg celsius, and we have, in every neighbourhood, gentlemen who start their cars and immediately rev them to near redline to quickly warm them up!
With such levels of ignorance, would it be fair to presume that these are almost certainly bad drivers?

Drivers who rides the vehicle without judgement.
we have a cab driver in our company. his story is :

1. first day he dashed a volvo bus.
2 . second day, a maruti 800.
3. third day, a cycle. oh god really cycle guy had a bad hurt.

Three consecutive accidents in 3 consecutive days.

What makes a bad driver in most of the cases is a sense of complacency. Its the 'think-i-know-it-all' over confident genius who would go against the usual safety-norms.

Actually, by that logic, women, who can't ever drive with the least amount of confidence and look left then right before giving ignition even when the car is in the garage, are technically better drivers than men.

Holy irony batman!
