Ignorance at its peak!!! I fail to understand that if he doesn't care about his life at all, at least he should care about the life of the little baby who in all faith is hanging on his shoulder. I am appalled to see this.

This speaks of the attitude the father has got towards the kid. This is purely suicidal. I have seen some ladies keep their little ones between their feet and riding 2 wheeler.
This guy thinks he can control brake/acceleration in one hand. Sheer Madness

A guy must be a professional moron on a gifted amateur to even think of carrying a child like that. Hope the kid doesnt learn this from his dad .

The kid needs to be alive in order to learn. If this excuse of a dad continues such moronic antics on the road, a fatal accident is bound to happen.

By no means he is a "super dad". An idiot of the first order and should be taken to task by his family first and then the law!

Done. The portal says 'check back in 7 days for update'. Let me see what they do.

I filed it under 'riding without helmet'. There was nothing listed for 'risking an infant's life and should be sterilized in public interest'.

That happens when you do not know the dimensions of your car plus parallel parking. Not sure if these motor driving schools teach parallel parking.

Really man and the most irritating part is when such people do not realise that substantial part of your car is out on the road and creating inconvenience to other people driving straight. If only they realise, they will make an effort to rectify.

Now, at this place, you will find several two wheelers crossing everyone else on the left and by driving on the Walking lanes.

I slowly trut along and am the second vehicle at the signal. I need to take a left. Signal is RED. There is NO free left. There is a two wheeler, with two young guys in front of me.

I can now go left, i can see the left sign blinking at the pole to my left. I do a gentle honk to the two wheeler, no response. I honk twice, no response. I honk just a wee bit and i get a gesture from the guy riding the two wheeler, pointing me to the RED sign in front. I gesture back that RED is for going straight and we can now go left.

He asks his co-passenger to get down and check the signal that i was pointing out to him. They exchange some words amongst themselves, but dont budge from their position and they keep laughing to themselves.

Meanwhile, there are several cars behing me honking away to glory. And finally, when the signal in front turn Green, the two wheeler, who was all along to the front and left of me, had to go straight. I am expasperated. And am thinking what else do we need to put up with in an already impatient and intolerable roads.
I am into the same problem almost everyday, as I aslo take a left turn at this signal. I don't honk because it is just another 30 seconds before this signal turns green for both straight and left turns. However, the biggest problem here is that many two wheelers usually come on the footpath along Univercell outlet and go straight when you are about to take left turn at the signal. This is suicidal but no one cares.

On the rare occasions where a footpath is actually available/usable in Bangalore and I'm on foot, I don't budge if a two-wheeler rider comes up behind me on the footpath. I've got pissed enough a couple of times to make a guy back up all the way and rejoin the road, or took his keys and handed over to a cop at the signal.

The cheek these guys have to ride on a footpath, then honk at a pedestrian to make way.

Most folks in our office parking make sure they park within the marked lines. Occasionally we see someone who parks straddling two slots. But this one was the height, in the way he parked straddling 4 slots, rendering 3 slots useless.

That deserves a couple of notes on the windshield (to go back to learn driving/ parking) and 4 flat tires.
