Default Ten commandments for driving in Bangalore !!

Please see the following blog :
Platform 7 - A Railfan's Blog!: Ten traffic commandments for Bangalore...

The blogger Mr. B.K. Sankar is a very knowledgeable Indian Rail fan (moderator in irfca yahoogroup) now more into Bus fanning at Bangalore, who has recently shifted to Bangalore from Mumbai !! So his observations must be seen in that perspective

Made for a nice read, but then all this has already been discussed here . He forgot to mention the BMTC buses for a change.

OK. Most of the comments he has made might be true. He has forgotten to mention particularly the BMTC buses and white Indica Taxis where their is no traffic rules for them. They can do anything they want.

But I have seen the same in H'bad too.
