Default Re: Hinjewadi Traffic Issues

A colleague was killed in a road accident yesterday while travelling to office. He was in Wings Radio cab and near a chowk at Wakad, a truck banged the vehicle from behind causing his death. I am not sure who was at fault - whether the Radio cab driver or the truck but a life has been lost.

Everyday while commuting I observe the cabs and six-seaters trying to cut from left, right and they drive a tad bit rashly and take the wrong side of the road.

Is there a way through which we can persuade the passengers of these vehicles to protest against the practice? I tried to talk to drivers, but its of no use.

It will be sad if a mishap occurs esp in six seaters, which actually carries more than 10 people at a time.

If you havent already left, DO NOT take the Mezza9 route. The lines are really long and completely stationary as we speak.
Also, a while ago, cops were making people compulsorily take a left turn at McD though. Dunno if they are letting anyone go straight now. Things look very very bleak right now. :(

Update as of 7.10 pm. Cops are not allowing anyone to take any other route than the Mezza9 one. Predictably, the line of traffic there stretches several kilometers.
But thats not the worst part of it.

The worst part is , I am soon going to be a part of it.

Take any route but this one. Like the Nande-Chande-Gande-Bande one.

Which route is this? Any recent update? I am waiting only for the traffic to subside, I am planning to leave by 815pm. Just hoping that the traffic would have subsided by then.

Update at 8.40 pm:

Traffic is stand still ahead of Wipro circle. Sitting inside the car with engine turned off!

OT: Riders on the Storm by The Doors is keeping me entertained. The lyrics and the current traffic condition is by far the best irony!

Update at 9.10 pm: Managed to just cross Yes bank in 30 mins. Mezza 9 will take another 15 mins at least. By far, this is the worst Hinjewadi jam I've ever been in!

Traffic is worse now. People started driving on the wrong side and both sides are now jammed! I parked the car and walked to Mezza 9!

And No, I'm not travelling to Mumbai tonight. Don't have the patience anymore.

Boy oh Boy, yes it was crazy, I left at 820pm, was feeling very happy thought that the traffic muct have subsided, since it was pretty quiet! Just after crossing wipro circle, realised why it was so quiet, people had literally parked on the road since it was just not moving ahead, I took a u-turn went back to ETZ and took the village route, can say was very lucky to reach home at 925. Had to take dirt road even in the village as Marunji had their own celebrations, it was good to see all hatches do off-roading.

Regards,
