BHP stands for brake horse power.so when ever we say a horse means the bhp.

as the carb esteem has 65 bhp ,so 65 horses.

13 bhp is what a unicorn has

Because the signs are in illustration form. There'll be a picture of a bullock cart, with an X drawn over it. Look for them the next time you take your bullocks out for a spin.

Also, horses don't do 60km/h unless you're feeding them NOS...

I think SS meant the signboards with the speedlimits (60) (40) etc

Either way it doesnt make a difference coz bullock carts dont have speedometers!

but ,i think it will help if we also exercise caution when the visiblity is low .
Exactly..
Guys, let us accept that fact that we live & drive in an underdeveloped country where the under-developed roads have to be shared by everybody: pedestrians, cyclists, animal-carts, 2-wheelers upto 16-wheelers. You cannot keep the non-motorvehicle population off the roads. After all 80-90% (guessing) of Indians do not own a car.

As good drivers, it is the responsibility of each one of us to watch out for the said hazards and drive in a manner safe for ourselves as well as other road-users. All of us do succumb to the temptation of speed at times, but we still need to be safe.

As a good learner, I want to drive the car during peak hours and heavy traffic, only when I reach the comfort zone in driving. Some of my friends even make fun on not trying out my car in roads during peak hours.

Iam not bothered about the damages that happens to the car on crashing it ( though I wish not to happen), Iam worried about the damages caused to other person because of this.

I really do not understand what they think in their minds, they say it will come in practice. For me its like learning swimming in sea. I want to learn swimming in pool and try out in sea after I get the comfort zone.

This is the level of seriousness on accidents in our people minds

Last month I was driving the incomplete Bangalore-Mysore highway at night. The highway was unlit and I was driving with low beam as usual. I was doing about 70KMs and suddenly I realised some movement dead ahead in the darkness beyond the area lighted by my headlights. Knowing Mandya farmers, I quickly reduced the speed to 30Kms. And what do you know, a bullock cart coming towards me on my side of the divider

A bullock cart on a highway going wrong way on the right most lane (next to divider) in the darkness without any lantern.

Had I hit that bullock cart, I would have been presumed at fault!!!
