@E_L: A very good view of the flyover. It looks like this pic was taken while the flyover was under constuction. A similar view with the fully constucted flyover would be awesome!

Summer in the city!.Chennai cars and sights. There's a lot to see right in one's own neighborhood. Atleast, i think so.

I thought 'see right in one's own neighbourhood' had something to do with the dark tints

So, you bought tyres at B.M.Lal's , I see.
You spend way too much time at Khader Nawaz Khan Road and Ispahani, Nick!

Seeing the pictures made me nostalgic about Chennai as stayed there for about 2 years. Few things very particular to vehicles in Chennai are
1. Absolutely black tints
2. After market blaring horns.

Anyways keep the pictures coming

Unhappy

@neoranjit

A visit to your neighborhood is a must, i say. To check out the tints!.

@nitrous

Finally!. I'm all about delayed actions.

@All

Thanks!.

This set of pics is about traffic, the way we drive here, residential neighborhoods, Chennai's own Bullets and cars.

Good snaps Nick. I have to echo Nitrous when I say you are spending a lot of time at the same places :-). A lot of Red Swifts seem to be showing up as well.

Same with the Beemers Nick. Parking lots seem so incomplete without a 3 or a 5 there. Just too many of them.
