Another problem with Bangalore two wheelers is, they wear full faced helmet covering only their head. [on mobile, unable to upload sample photo]

Other day I had to go towards RMZ InfoTech. Suddenly on middle of road I see an Indica cabby driving over a helmet. The biker was wearing a full face helmet covering only his head. Due to some reason it fell off on the road. Luckily there was only one car n he was not driving fast. On middle of the road the biker struggling to take out the stuck helmet (beneath the car).

Though the act was stupid n dangerous, it was funny to see them struggling LOL

Here is an example of a bad parker. Look how this guy has parked his expensive Porsche Panamera GTS. He has clearly scraped it. How can one afford to park like this without bothering?
Spotted in the US.



Mods, I could not find a thread on bad parking hence I'm posting here.

Took this a week back in Orion mall parking.

Breaklight reflection is due to my mobile flash.

Young guy tonight,sticking his nose in my backside, on a very narrow road (Kalakshetra) until he could finally force his way through. Which got him as far as sticking his nose up the backside of the person in front. About the only way to let someone past on that road, especially with oncoming traffic, is to pull over and park.

Immature, bad mannered, a bully, and a bad driver. When polishing his car (it was shiny!) he should think about polishing his driving. And his manners.

I drove back from Mysore to Bangalore yesterday evening. It was really horrible with all the traffic and idiot drivers. Usually I avoid travelling back on Sunday, but yesterday I had to.

People who are familiar with this highway know about the bridge before entering Srirangpatna. A idiot driver in a Honda City was trying to come in the wrong way. The entry to the bridge is a curve and with heavy traffic there were vehicles on both lanes and this bridge is only wide enough for two vehicles side by side. But this moron decided to save half a km drive and wanted to drive on the wrong way on this bridge.

Also I think I have found worst and most senseless driver yesterday. After crossing Ramanagara, I found a car behind with blue lights and blaring siren. I thought it was a ambulance and slowed down and allowed it to pass. Only to find that it was an private registered Innova and not an ambulance. This moron had put in blue led lights and an ambulance siren to get his way in the traffic. He did the same with the vehicles ahead of us. I could not note down his number as he was driving very rash. This one really takes the cake as the most insensitive and worse driver.

That's atrocious

How on God's green earth did he have the nerve to do such a thing on a public road?

He deserves to be hung ASAP!

In a closed and controlled environment, these stunts seem good. On public roads, these become killing machines.
All the more, seems he is not wearing the seat belts.

Does posting the videos to the RTO/police help in any way?
