For this guy this is normal - he got a parking slot and before anyone else could grab it he parked his car there.

btw - is this Manish Nagar ?

On a recent drive on the NH4, I saw this.

Bad Drivers - How do you spot 'em-09032012149.jpg

The guy swerved from one lane to another while approaching the toll-booth, and simply couldn't make up his mind, even till the very last second. :

What the hell do these people think they are doing! I spot such morons every other day!

The other day i was on the Expressway around 9 in the night going towards E-City.
I was on the Right lane doing 80 kmph.
This idiot on a bike cuts into my lane and brakes suddenly. I manage to swerve past him. I look in the RVM and this guy is trying to cross his bike onto the other lane (the lane towards Silk Board) from underneath those railings!

Scene One : On a two lane narrow road, traffic moving very quickly, a Ford Endeavour is trying to enter the lane while reversing and then planning to go forward. No prize for guessing the driver is a LADY. But com'on its an ENDY.

Scene Two : A Scorpio driven by a man with family on back seat trying to squeeze in the smallest of gaps and in the process won't mind brushing numerous two-wheelers. The look on the co-passenger and ladies on the back seat said it all. They were feeling helpless inside the car and were waiting for the torturous journey to end soon.

I come across scenes like these almost daily on Goa roads.

^^ Why ECity? You don't even require toll-booths to spot the impatient nutbag.

All you need to do is drive on any given road and watch how impatient people get, if you aren't going fast enough for them. They go left, and then right, and invariably get stuck anyway. If there was a way to drive above vehicles, they'd certainly try it. For now, read my signature.

This seems to be a common occurence at the toll boths esp. on NH4. I have seen this behaviour 3-4 times. In any case both lines will move at the same pace.

But...

Some people are born losers, you can't do anything much about them !!

Muhahahaha. I did some moral traffic policing today. Near Whitefield, I saw a gentleman riding his bike with helmet hanging on his right hand, and talking on cell phone with left hand. I just drove behind him honking continuously till he stopped. Then I fed away like a wuss

Had a good and Bad experience last night.

Its on the signal on Hosur Road which you get after coming on the Hockey stadium road. You need to take right for Koramangala, there were hoards of cabbies and then one boss comes into the picture in his tempo and stands on my left, now I am on the middle sandwiched, but as the signal becomes green, we all move, being a good smarthian i let one cabbie just ahead on my left pass through but this tempo sharply severs towards me, missing the rear left door narrowly, i had to force my way through. Then I thought you wanna play, lets play. So i was driving at 50 which is the speed limit in the section and since its narrow and Manza width is big i blocked that tempo untill the next signal, the fellow honked for sometime but then realized something as he became quite

He brushed my vehicle as he tried to get ahead of me. i heard that sound and rolled down my window and shouted at him. He replied it scraped only the wheel dont worry. . I got down to see the impact. Thank god nothing happened.
