According to me in most cases the bad driver has an "L" on the glass.

I have noticed this very often that if i suddenly have to brake hard it is 90% of time because of a car which has an "L".

Maybe later on they improve

One thing you guys have forgotten...
Why do generally people use hazard lights? if their car is having trouble or if the car is parked to the side to warn others that the car is stationery and to slowdown to overtake right?

Well i dont know if anyone has noticed this but i bangalore i have noticed this a few times that is that is the car is going straight through an intersection then the driver puts on the hazard light.. Its like an indication that the car is going straight.. .. the first time i saw this i slowed my car thinking the car ahead of me switched on the hazard lights is having a problem to my surprise he went straight through the intersection and then switched off the hazard signal... it was unbelieveable..
If you go to a smaller city like Bhubaneswar, you'll be surprised. In places like Bangalore, its just rare. But in Bhubaneswar, its an unwritten rule. Its like, everyone does it while passing an intersection. I was once confronted (one year back) for not doing it while passing an intersection!!

People chucking stuff out of their cars while driving. Not only are they bad drivers/passengers, but also bad citizens. Damn annoying.

Guys dont fry me on this, most of the (I mean "most" and not "al"l) KA-01 drivers tend to hog the road and block the traffic, I am not sure if anybody else has observed this. Also most of the KA-01 cars tend to have both their side mirrors folded, so its better to keep a safe distance from these chaps.

Apart from this there are the usual yellow boards and autos, mide aged gentlemens, almost all ladies.

I am amazed why these people dont feel ashamed being on the right most side with their speedo needle on the leftmost side.

hehe also same is practised by some who drive/ride old vehicles, guess they assume that when they hit the top most speed in thier vehicle thats when take the right lane.

Top speed of the vehicle might be 40kmph!

Hmm. Good observation on the KA01 vehicles. KA01 is central bangalore and usually may not be private owned cars. They may belong to Taxi operators and other offices. Could this be the reason???

But i often find the KA02 vehicles very nice and accomodating . Now you know where i am from!

The ladies invariably claim that they are the perfect drivers!! Recently I read an article about lady drivers being harassed by men, and the author repeatedly claimed that ladies are always good drivers.

Have a woman EVER admit she was wrong in ANYTHING?

I am yet to see ONE good woman driver here in India. Even my "left seat driver" always encourage me to do stoopid things. Lucky she doesn't drive!!
