Yellow plates are the biggest culprits and they are the easiest to hit back also. Just break off their mirror or some part from their cabs, watch them squeal in agony since it comes rite out of their pockets...

When you see a MUV /SUV doing such a thing, just speed ahead of them, slow down and force them to do so, start your parking lights and go for a cleaning of your windscreens!
Nothing in their life will annoy them more than this

Sorry to hear abt the accident. Thank God she's allright though. Can totally understand how you feel about it. Drivers must learn to be more responsible and careful towards fellow road users, especially pedestrians and two wheelers, simply because they are much more vulnerable to serious injuries in case of accidents.

Lionheart sympathise with you as that can happen to anyone of us.Yes after the Tata trucks on the highways I am sure these SUV guys are the self crowned KING OF THE ROADS and we all their subjects. I too drive and have driven many but I do not play such dangerous pranks risking the life and limbs of fellow road users.
At the same time if you do not lodge a police complaint, you are setting a dangerous precedent. All such cases must be booked so that we move towards safer roads. That may be a distant dream, but each one of us have a role to play. And needless to say we must play it well.
So please book that guy for rash driving and causing grevious hurt.Other Sections of the MV Act will follow and the policemen are experts to frame charges invoking at least four or more Sections.

bro i wish the lady is well. A few days back saw a safari take a left totally ignoring a couple of ladies on their left, on a scooter taking the same left too. The girls fell and the guys in the safari just ignored it and moved on. Sickening, the way some people behave.

First, it's good that the lady is fine and wish her a speedy recovery. While I agree with you 100% on the attitude these MUVs have in reality, I wish you had pressed charges on the driver. I feel that someone has to really take them on and make them understand that they need to respect everyone on the road, irrespective of what the others are driving.

I realized sometime back that this is not a safe thing to do mate. There was this Safari that I wasn't able to give side and the driver started hitting my car from behind with the massive bull bar his car had. I didn't stop cause I saw atleast 2 hefty looking village punks sitting in the front (you know what kinds I mean), rather just drove the hell off that area.

You are absolutely correct. That's the case 90% of the times.
