Default Re: Bad Drivers - How do you spot 'em

Auto drivers are impatient at any given time and place. Watch this autorickshaw creep on the extreme left of a cluttered junction at a red light and then cut across because he wants to turn right. Amazingly he uses his indicator which apparently legalises his turn and makes it safe The right turn is a one way. Just another day in the life of an autorickshaw.

The camera captures way too much of the sky. Hardly anything much on the ground in comparison. You may need to adjust the camera.

I realised that last month after reviewing the whole set and this is fixed now.

And we also noted that it is an invariably common behaviour amongst two wheelers, auto rickshaws and tractors, that they MUST Make Shortcuts and travel illegally on absolutely the wrong side of the road, in the opposite direction to on going high speed traffic and their lights must be blazingly on.

This is the situation on the high speed highways of our lovely country.
And it is probably never going to change.
Well we have more than 50% rural population which have no traffic sense, no license as well, moreover getting a license is joke as well as you can just get it through an agent. That's why our highways are so unreliable, animals, wrong side vehicles, high beam on the face, truck blocking all the lanes, you name it and we've got it.

Had a scary situation yesterday.

Had slowed down for a speed breaker and was just crossing it at normal speeds. There was an opening for U turn on the right hand side but i was heading straight, suddenly a biker ( with no helmet on) comes and cuts across from left of the vehicle into this opening all of a sudden without even slowing down or seeing that i am going straight. Thank God i was moving at crawling speeds so that I could brake and didnt hit him. The biker kept riding on non chalantly and didnt even glance back.

Suicidal bikers I tell you.

It's more to do with either ignorance or arrogance. Or even a combination of both. I see this kind all the time where we currently stay. Nothing to be done except pray the biker in question doesn't fall in front of your vehicle and lose a limb or two.

I don't have words to describe this video. I can't believe he has the audacity to upload this video on Youtube.

Hopefully these idiots have registered as organ donors.
That is the only useful thing these idiots will be good for.
Maybe leave out the brain for organ donation as most probably there won't be any.

I had seen this too and reported it. If you checked the comments, you’d have seen that a lot of those people have chastised the guy for his actions.

Really disgusting. Never saw such a bad driver. What can we expect when he has named himself “Street Burner? Sometimes, I feel, we shouldn’t have bikes that go beyond 40kmph. But, it’s these type of bad drivers we need to condemn.

Agree. The least we can do is "dislike" the video, flag it to concerned folks (Yamaha, Bihar RTO personnel since one can see BR01 plates around) and write discouraging comments to play down the ego quotient of the guy!

I too have reported it, but is Google taking any action based on these reports? I have reported few videos and one particular obscene video was mass reported by my friends but all of them are still on Youtube. I don't think Google is taking any action on these reports, one exception may be copyright infringements.

I was just waiting for Mr. Darwin to prove his theory right, but maybe some other day, by the looks of it, it will happen soon

Why are so many of them in orange KTM vests? I hope this idiocy wasn't part of a manufacturer organized event.

Are these the KTM dealer uniform? I recollect seeing something similar in the showroom here. Since they all had that, I feel they just took a display bike for a joy ride. If so, it's high time someone from that area locate the dealer and send the video to the concerned manager/owner.

Have seen something similar here at a Benz dealership. Recorded the video, called up the dealership and asked them to connect to the concerned dude. Vented out my concerns to him and told him to take necessary action against the driver (Had posted here few months back).
