Guide on places to avoid during rains
It has been raining incessantly for the past few days in Pune. This being september, it comes as a surprise. Half-a-month's rain in 2 days
I had a bad rain-experience driving my way after work on a usually-normal road. This thread is to list all the must-avoid places in your cities - so that people like me take more than usual precaution while driving through them during heavy/moderate rains. I travel to Mumbai often by car, so would request mumbaikars to similarly advise on Mumbao roads as well.

I was stuck up or rather submerged in water and the ensuing traffic jam for well over one hour at the RSI club on 2nd of September.
It took me over 2 hours to travel 10 kms. I was frustrated beyond words. The whole of Pune is in a huge mess.

avoid India altogether? :
just kidding. Alright, lets list down Bangalore rain-hit areas:
1. Anywhere in the Hosur - EC road after rains in the evenings mean that you better pack dinner and then start driving from office. There will be enough time to switch off your car, eat your dinner and move an inch.
2. BTM - Silk Board - there's no silky movement of traffic here after even a drizzle. Primarily due to the bad condition of the roads near the junction which makes all motorists slow down, leading to a cascade all the way to jayadeva flyover.
3. The junction right after Military school (with the mosque on the left) going towards Residency road. Part of the road is missing and so everyone goes into a little one-and-half lane to get past the potholes, and then fan out in about 6 lanes to get into 2 lanes leading away from the signal. Hilarity ensues.
4. Anywhere near Majestic in the evenings after a shower means that you are either very brave or really love traffic.
Thats all I got, solely from my own experiences. That being said, I reached BTM from Sarjapur in 15 minutes yesterday. But it was at 11PM.
