Good thing you did not stop or try to grab his attention. You never know what could happen if his attention gets diverted. As it is, he is performing such a difficult task of balancing the 2 wheeler with his kid literally standing.
I can only hope that he realizes how dangerous it is for him and his family sooner than later and this realization does not come at his expense.

Now you can officially call me the unluckiest driver on this forum.

Extreme overtakes close calls and still alive to brag about it.

One of my ex-colleagues shot this video and photo and shared on FB. Driver of Shivneri bus Shivneri Bus No MH06S 9420 from Dadar to Pune was sleeping while driving the bus. This happened today afternoon. He woke the driver and started chatting with him to keep him alert. Don't know what else to say, this is a live example of putting passengers at risk.

I don't know if the FB link will work or not, but still posting it here for the video along with screen grabs.

When Govt announces demonetization but you have a lot of cash laying around and don't know what to do with it.

Here is one where the pillion is holding a phone to the ear of the rider while he is talking and riding, with the helmet on the fuel tank! Of course, no rear view mirrors either on the bike. This is definitely not an isolated case.

Looks like they were trying to reenact the crash tests in real world or are we looking at a scandal in making for filing a false insurance claim?

I think you should be called the luckiest (and patient might I add) driver, as you are still alive

Of late, with the traffic growing dense everyday in our city, we are blessed to witness proportionate rise in the idiot riders/drivers. This compilation was from my commute yesterday!

Spotted these two drivers today in Delhi.
Both of them cannot be traced in case of any mishap.

Swift didn't have proper number plate and the other car? Well the car itself wasn't complete!

* First rider does not give a damn and makes a non-stop right turn in the process scaring the pedestrian and the Indica driver to my left (although even the Indica driver should have been more cautious).

* Second one on the right side of the screen you can see a squid on his KTM practising a wheelie onto the oncoming traffic.

* Third one not really a bad Driver but a Drunkard who aimed his plastic bottle at my car and threw but missed. I thought he was pedestrian crossing(since he was super still) and gave a warning honk. But it seemed to have riled him up and he threw his bottle (plastic) which missed my car luckily.

Bus Driver Beaten Up For Overtaking "Dangerously" In Kerala's Pallakad



Source: Link to NDTV news

This may not be the right way to handle the situation, but the way some buses are driven, this was bound to happen some day.

I was watching Grand Tour's Mozambique special a few weeks back, and the thing that struck me the most is even in Mozambique things seem far more disciplined and organized than what we have here in India.

I do not know much about that nation, but is the average Mozambiquan better educated than the average Indian motorist which leads to overall better traffic sense ?

I dont think prosperity or (lack of) education has got to do anything with our anarchical tendencies.
