I, just to humor myself, decided to approach & help them. That is when I got the shocker; most of the security personel in the car were in different levels drunkeness. It was so disgusting, I felt like approaching the traveling VIP, and give him a piece of my mind. But then reality struck my mind and I simply moved on. It's totally unacceptable but what could I've done?

Watch out, the life at risk is probably your own.
It is common for escort vehicles to drive slowly. Mostly it is the most dilapidated jeep in the inventory of the local police which is detailed for escort duty. They will naturally be very slow.

saw this at Dhaula Kuan last week. Generally all VIPs coming to Delhi airport take this route to goto their respective bungalows. So we coming down from Gurgaon, join the convoy of minister just behind him. Along with them there is this whole traffic flowing, these guys try to scare others and make way a little ahead I saw a guy (a person aged around 50-55) coming out of his new 2008 accord and shouting at the convoy. He was making facial and hand impressions and saying something (as in shouting with hand movements) (couldnt hear) , may be he was angry of horn/trying to push him of the road. Couldnt stop to ask him as he drove up after the convoy passed (chaffeur driven car).
These convoys effect everyone on the road and are a sort of menace, the roads are for them (thats what they feel)

But usually in my state i.e. Haryana, i have never seen VIPs moving slow
blame it on roads or blame it on fancy cars they have.
Its always hard to even keep pace with them, even the pilot Gypsies are seen doing a brisk 100+ most of times.
Though the usual rule is not to enter inside the convoy but you can always overtake them if you have a clear stretch and capable machine.
And menace to public also depends on the politician too, some newly elected ones show off more and some suave and subtle politicians like Haryana CM, they pass without even blaring the sirens.
He belong to my own city and is in town every now and then and most of the time, the siren is used only when struck in traffic to get way.
But the politicians should show a respect to other people on road too and not to be harsh.
