Default Re: Bad Drivers - How do you spot 'em

Some of the companies like where I work have zero tolerance towards road indiscipline.The company cars have speed governors installed in them,speed restricted to 60Kmph be it highways or inside city. Any employee found driving a car without a seat belt gets terminated.It applies for co-passengers too.For a two wheeler wearing a helmet is must.

I did come to that place to pickup a friend once (from main road itself) and that was the late day!

I dont even think of entering that campus.

This is a chronic problem everywhere. In their attempt to get ahead of everyone else and get to their destination quicker, they end up blocking both sides and delay everyone including themselves!

Is this one of the first Indian IT companies with a huge base in Mysore?

The sign is not blocking out much of rear vision. He's probably strategically placed it to stop being blinded by inconsiderate drivers behind him running on high beam at night. And the driver is visible in the ORVM too, so the ORVM is obviously adjusted more or less okay, which isn't a sign of a bad driver either.

Default Re: Bad Drivers - How do you spot 'em

This morning there was this guy in a Santro who stuck to extreme left edge of the road beside the hanging bridge all the way upto KR Puram Railway station, he kept overtaking from left side in the space that was 'left'. In couple of places I thought he'd just fall off the road as there were shops and the road was at least 5ft higher and he was precariously moving on the edge of the sidewalk!
But guess what, he managed to get ahead of everyone else, even a bus that stopped near the KR Puram railway station, overtook it from the left and zoomed off. He just zoomed in front of people waiting to board the bus!

Either he is a veteran on this route who knows every inch at the back of his hand or he is downright stupid but a definite danger to everyone on the road

My cab driver does the same, however when I drive I just don't have the heart to put others lives at risk. At times there is a huge surge of people from the railway station and it's quite possible that your left RVM would nudge some poor soul waiting to take a bus/rick.

This guy was really struggling for balance, but still didn't bother to find an alternate.

Bunch of teenage guys having fun not knowing the risk involved. 5 in front seat(2 each in either side of the driver), 3 hanging outside and I am assuming 5 in rear seat as well.

Both these Hyundai twins were driven in parallel with their ORVMs closed and blocking way for considerable distance. Ultimately the drivers of the cars following them had to become bad drivers, by honking continually to get past..

There's no 'or' there. Veteran of those streets or not, he's still downright STUPID to drive like that.

Angry Re: Bad Drivers - How do you spot 'em

Spotted two classic caes of Bad drivers while coming to office in the morning today.
1) A Wagon R fellow decides he needs to move lanes after getting down from the Airoli flyover on the Eastern Express highway coming from Mulund toll and wants to access the service road. So he does that without lane indicator On and misses a couple of vehicles by whisker, few screech halt and this fellow accesses the service lane and speeds up. He forces the traffic coming from the above and below the Airoli flyover to go slow because of his antics.

2) A Santro fellow feels like having a smoke while driving again on the busy Eastern expresshighway. So he occupies second lane from right and starts smoking keeping the hazard lights on and driving at around 40 kmph speeds forcing the vehicles behind to either overtake from left or honk/flash. But our friend here is blissfully enjoying his drag totally uncaring for the traffic. I felt like going in front of him and bringing the car to a halt to wake up the fellow.

God help others from such morons.

He might have been smoking something seriously good!

They are everywhere buddy. I am always on the lookout for these morons whenever I am entering a flyover/underpass or exiting them as these guys are in deep slumber just before or after the flyover/underpass and they suddenly decide that they have to go the complete opposite. The fact that they do this with much impunity leaves me .

quite a common thing with many road-safety-conscious companies, especially multinationals. Check this thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...trictions.html (Cars of CEOs / Senior Employees of Multinational Companies : Rules & Restrictions).
