Spotted this vehicle on varthur road. Infact, I was so embarrassed and angry with the way this hooligan (sorry to say, but you are one) drove in the busy stretch from sarjapur road to varthur road...
The vehicle was TN registered 'TN 70 B 9011'. You really didn't care for the safety of self or others on road.. You pushed almost all the vehicles and there were several 2 wheelers who literally stopped their vehicles scaring to get run over.
Were you drunk, or what sort of urgency were you in.
You overtook me under extreme condition near sarjapur road and I was able to catch up with you near varthur road. I didn't drive the way you drove to keep up with you, but the law of average helped you stay marginally ahead even after 13 kms.
You don't deserve to have teambhp stickers on your car. You are a Shame to this community.

Saw this Rapid, driven and changing directions true to its name, on Hosur road. Without any indication, made a U turn at Kudlu gate signal. Pretty much in line with Bang-galore traffic, I'd say... But why this temp plate covering what looks like a proper registration plate?

Saw this video where some extremely bad drivers (rather riders) are trying their luck with stunts on public roads. If they are on a death-wish, they should be allowed to go ahead but not while posing risks to others .

They all had been served instant karma in this video at least

The signage says one way and yet the tata ace guy braves it for his owner. This is near the Mahindra First choice intersection at guindy indstrl estate.

Report to the traffic police for faulty number plate. I know it's not possible to get him booked for dangerous driving online, but at least something!

What interest will Karnataka police show in a Hosur registered car?
By the way, the Safari belongs to BHPian verditer. I have no clue who or what was driving it though.

That number plate looks OK to me. What's so faulty in it ? Unless you are looking forward to only IND number plates, which even I don't have !

Yep, thats verditer's ride. He comes all the way from Hosur to Whitefield.
Not sure what was the urgency, or who was driving it actually !!

Let me play the devil's advocate here. Going by the BHPian's post in the Tata Safari thread, his truck was dropped for service on the same day. So, the chances are high that it was driven by one of the service centre personnel.

I cracked this case a few days ago. I saw a Fabia with the same temp banner (I prefer to call it banner, because it's made from some cloth or ''flex', and not a plate). One of the people inside seemed to look like the guy I saw the other day. There's also a Skoda service station near Hosa Road. I guess, the service station personnel are using this plate to hide the actual number plate, and avoid the owner paying the penalty for their felony.

Excellent catch buddy !! Am relieved that it is not verditer, but most probably the TASC guys.

But I would still want to know from N.A.GTC, what's wrong with the number plate ?

OK. Skoda is getting out of hands now. This is like these guys can run over someone and not take the blame !! Seems some major crimes are underway by Skoda ASC (whichever ASC is it). Not a good service strategy. If they are out on a test drive, why hide the number plate.

This is simply illegal - they're using a temp number to mask the real number during their test drives, etc so that if there is any violation caught on camera the car owner will not know/be charged.

Can't this be reported to BTP on their FB page ?

Could be a new/scared/over-cautious/nervous driver, but it sure is a pain to drive behind someone who is always dabbing the brakes (without reason), making the folks behind him edgy.

IMO you can gauge the driving of a person by just observing the blink-frequency of his/her brake-lights. High rate of blinking would usually be seen with folks zig-zagging through traffic, changing lanes with impunity, driving without anticipating traffic around them, etc. On the other hand, a person driving with a near-360 degree view of traffic around him and driving pre-emptively using inputs from others and from traffic-lights etc would not need to keep shifting between A-pedal and B-pedal every often.

P.S.: Ofcourse, goes without saying that the theory assumes working brake-lights & excludes B2B traffic where vehicles are barely moving thus requiring constant shift between brakes & gas.

Maybe some of the owners got challans/pending violations earlier, and they gave an earful to the Service Centre personnel, so the Service Centre decided to take a shortcut to avoid such instances. It is illegal to use a different number than what's allotted. Let me try posting it in the BTP FB page.

Friends - narrating a very funny incident from yesterday on a impatient driver i encountered. For those of you familiar with pune and mumbai-bangalore bypass there is construction going on for a long time near Lalani quantum society on the bypass road. This causes quite a long pileup in evening since people crossing the road tend to block the highway traffic.

Yesterday while on way back, around 1 - 2 km before this junction, was overtaken by a very rashly driven i20 who was zig-zagging, honking to glory and tailgating everyone including the PMT buses. The person had a political party sticker on the back of his vehicle. I let him pass and soon he moves ahead only to get stuck in the jam ahead.

He tried to get his car down a very sharp slope down to the service road , for those who are familiar this slope is very sharp and taken by SUV's only. In all his madness he gets his car stuck and has no way to either move forward or backward. The driver was hardly 18 - 20 years age according to my guess.

I'm not too sure if this is illegal. Even my XUV was given a red board with TC on it while the service center folks were test driving it. The original board was not masked though.

Guess there would be some justification around it.

That number is valid only till the vehicle is registered at the local RTO (based on owner's address), it is a temporary registration usually valid just for a month.
