On a serious note, do you think any of the aforementioned solutions can ease traffic congestion in Bengaluru?

@dailydriver
If 'they' decide to incorporate communications into cars, there will be no way out. It will be impossible for us to avoid it, just as you have to upgrade your OS for fixes while some backdoors are introduced silently or even 'ad channels' are added. Can you really stop using Whatsapp, if everyone else is using it?

Idiot on a Superbike - This is one more category added to my "watch-out-for" list.
I was overtaking a car on the NECE road today and doing 120kmph myself on the right most lane. I saw a Superbike (some Suzuki I guess) in my ORVM. Although 2-wheelers are designated to go on the left most lane on this road, I feel its ok for Superbikes as they are capable of high speeds. So it was in my mind to move left after I pass the car I was overtaking. But this moronic rider was either in a real hurry and couldn't wait even for that and overtook me from my right, riding on a small piece of road just enough to fit his bike. All this at 120+kmph speeds. And then in a couple of seconds, he vanished snaking through the many truck and cars.
He had all the biking gear and everything alright, but he was an Idiot at the same time.

Just he was wearing proper gear does not make him smart and you are right, he is an idiot. Putting it another way - must be an educated ass. I hate these KTM'S and other superbikes cutting thru narrow spaces in and out. Fools not only risk their life but jeopardise others on the road. Frustrating!!!

Spotted this guy entering whitefield from KR Puram:

I hope he will just drive into Container corporation premises and just stay tight till midnight. However, if this great man changes his mind, and say breaks for a coffee or snacks, or decides to take a U Turn after seeing ITPL, or just gives up somewhere and his pilot decides a career change, we can expect the entire ITPL area to come to a standstill.

Not scaring anyone, but do keep a look out on google for this guy. He is big enough to make a mark on google maps and influential enough to ruin your day and call an early weekend.

I really wish traffic policemen would do something about slow moving vehicles on the right lane. I got stuck for two cycles on Hosa Road signal only due to two trucks not moving fast enough on the right lane

I guess some BBMP officer was in trance one late night and decided to install two unscientific speed breakers on ORR, just after Rammurthy Nagar underpass going towards Hennur! These speed breakers are HUGE in size and looks like they just poured some tar and jelly and never really bothered to smoother or shape it! I was thinking it was some localites who had done it, but after seeing the reflectors neatly placed before the speed breaker makes me believe it is BBMP! But this is really intriguing, how could they come up with some things! Aren't they aware of it or is it the laziness to turn a blind eye to such shoddy piece of work!

Granted the biker was being a fool. But how is doing 120 kmph on the NECE road fine?

Well 120kmph is the actual speed limit on the NECE road. Hence it should be fine

Right - 120 is unsafe on NICE Road. It would have been fine if all of the drivers followed the lane principle.

Those gigantic speed breakers were created by BBMP only. I saw a dump truck and a JCB employed to pour the tar right in the middle of the day (around 4 pm) last Wednesday. As folks might be knowing, this is an accident prone spot on ORR, in front of the Nandi Toyota showroom / ASR Marriage Hall where the road suddenly turns at a 90 degree angle. Though some method was required to slow down the traffic at that spot (maybe rumblers) but i agree with Mafioso that the huge speed breaker will only create more chaos and increase accidents as speeding vehicles will suddenly slow down and get rear ended or will not slow down and take off. Moreover these havent been marked / painted and that stretch is mostly in the dark at night due to street lamps having been knocked out by a truck last month.

Something to cheer about the Bangalore Bad Traffic.
Apparently bad traffic of Bangalore helped in preventing a terrorist attack on IIM in Bangalore.

Talking about NICE (or NECE) road, something that I saw this morning. Wondering how would these guys manage to get in this state. Some kind of metal from the van was thrown all around the road, causing some long pile up and the vehicles had to take the center pit to pass through.

The second gate plus road recently opened is already pretty popular. Any increase will only lower their overall earnings.

One side of the Doddanekundi flyover has been opened to traffic today. I was expecting some kind of unveiling ceremony but it hasn't happened as far as I know. Maybe they are testing with real traffic before officially announcing the opening of one carriageway. Actual benefit to traffic flow will be known tomorrow, since today is a holiday.
