Default Re: Courteous drivers on the road.

Some days ago, I was trailing a NWKRTC bus on NH4 just after Hinjewadi. I was on my bike and made myself visible on his right RVM couple of time. No flashing/honking from my side (I have Minda trumpets mostly for stray dogs, blind turns and the frequent morons texting/riding).

About half a km later, once the left lane opened up, the bus moved over and the driver hand signalled me to overtake. Did not expect that to happen!!

Happened yesterday. There is Metro work going on the entire Vijayanagar to Mysore road stretch. Just before I could take a turn from a signal, a truck with a long empty trailer moved into the road. Now, I would have to follow the truck for a good 2kms with a dusty trail. But, I was surprised when the trucker moved into one of the open barricaded stretch and signaled me to take over, while I was waiting. Waved a thanks and moved ahead This was at 5AM in the morning!

Highway truckers have been observed to be courteous in general I think. It's the tippers and stuff you need to watch over.

Anyway, kudos to that truck driver.

I encountered a courteous company bus driver in today mornings peak traffic. Can you beat it. I was shocked to say the least

The road to office from Wakad to Hinjewadi is a two lane road to start with which then becomes 3 laner after some distance. I was going on the left lane of the 2 laner and found that the guy in the front of me was a Learner with L board on it. Needless to say he was going very slowly. I could see that just behind me on the right lane there was this Company Bus following me. I gave a right indicator but did not really expect the bus driver to be patient and allow me to pass. I was waiting for him to ignore the indicator and zoom past me. But surprise surprise nothing like that happened. In fact when he saw that i was waiting for him to pass he sounded the horn and indicated that i can go ahead. I think he also noticed the Learning driver at the front holding up the traffic. This was a pleasant surprise. Not all company bus drivers are bad.
