Another accident in HJW last night!
A cabbie was getting out of DLF, trying to merge left. An auto coming from the right couldnt apply brakes on time and banged into the cabbie at a perfect right angle. Last checked, both the vehicles had some serious damage.

Looking at the way this thread is dying(?) shall we assume that most members now are not facing any issues while traveling to Hinjewadi?

Or
- they are happy with the reduced number of issues
- they are bored of ranting about the same thing again

You need new people to rant about the same flyover, Anil

Edit: Not everybody gets to see half as many incidents as Swanand.

The additional lane in the morning i think is open for last 2 weeks now. I think the experiment is showing decent results in terms of reduced time to travel to office in the morning.

So actually nothing new to talk about and as Selfdrive mentioned everybody is not SI to be at the right place at the right time.

Yesterday evening I left at 7:30pm and traffic was non-existent!! I reached Balewadi in flat 15 mins!

Today was the payback time

Started from Balewadi at 8:30am reached office by 9:30am!!!
Being Thursday I was hopeful of reduced traffic but boy, how wrong was I. Buses added to the woes with unsignalled lane changes in bumper-to-bumper traffic - especially a Tarawade bus MH06S 7454, dont know why the people who are on-board dont reprimand the drivers.

That is EXACTLY what I thought today morning!! Every junction from Wakad is having humungous jams for no apparent reason. A HR registered Santro ruined my day- he drove so erratically that all probability was left behind, but he also made up for it as I finally overtook while he was stuck behind a truck.

A PATHETIC day of travel in quite sometime!

Ah, what a nice bubble have we created around us - Nothing to complain about, it seems!

As SD put it across - We need new people to rant over the same things again and again.
Not everyone is me! I happen to see all the good and bad things happening in HJW. Dont ask me how. I just do.

Today morning was a nightmare. Jams throughout for no apparent reasons. This, on a Thursday, where there's relatively less traffic.

Tarawade : I find these guys the worst drivers in hinjiwadi. Whenever I see one I will clearly drift away form them, they are really rash, have no concern for any 2 wheeler or even cars!!

But yeah the new lane has helped quite a bit thats for sure.

Last evening I was dropping off a pregnant colleague and was hence driving sedately to avoid any sudden jerks. But apparently, you cant avoid some jerks The Tarawade bus driver behind me was honking away like crazy and was so close to my car that i think he was using my slipstream!

Could you guys possibly have the bus numbers?
My company uses these guys as vendors, and if these busses indeed belong to my organization, I could officially launch a complaint against this vendor.

The bus number that I noted down yesterday was MH06S 7454.

On a side note, today's traffic was breeze, even though I was a bit late. Started from balewadi at 9:10am, reached desk by 9:30am.

Though had a small incident while climbing the uphill road to my office (behind Wipro), there is a small connection for U-turn in the divider and I was at a considerable speed. Suddenly a bus from the other side, without any indication turned into that connection, probably for a U-turn. First time saw ABS into action in my car Needless to say, gave more than a mindful to the driver, and to the guards at the gate, though I doubt it would be reported.

If indicators and horns are provided, one should use them!!!!!Ugghhhhhh!

Thanks Rahul. Shall check if this bus belong to my organization.

Yes, Ive seen the ABS come into play, most of the times because of such morons. Arguing with them is like playing tennis against a wall. It just comes back to you.
