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

A couple of bad bike riders from my dashcam downloads. Both show how (not to) change lanes or cross roads or make a turn.
1. Turn, cross and look if you hear a honk or a crash.


2. Cross crossing bikes are sometimes like a video game

Not a bad driver spotting but a bad driver on tweet. Here is a guy tweeting to the Hyderabad (Cyberabad) Traffic police over a challen for riding a bike without mirrors, telling that he did not know it was illegal to ride without mirrors!!

Multiple possibilities

1. He is not the first owner and bought the bike without mirrors
2. He removed the mirrors after buying
3. Registered with mirrors and later sold without them
4. I heard this from one of my friends years ago. "bike loses its looks with mirrors", may be he or earlier owner is of that type
etc. etc.

Letís also include the people whose bikes have mirrors but have them folded because they like that Ďbunny earsí look to the list.

With all the extra time to trawl through YouTube, I came across the following channel whose entire content is street racing on highways. I'm happy for this post to be deleted if it's found inappropriate but I'd be even happier if this post is allowed to stay, gains some traction and catches the eye of someone in the Haryana police.

The cars he uses usually do not have registration numbers blanked out e.g. the Elantra that features regularly is HR260 J2702. It is therefore fully prosecutable. Any tips on how to get this idiot off the roads and behind bars?

That's outright stupid to do something like this on public roads. To me, this looks like the KMP expressway.

I guess that would be easy. Tweet to Gurgaon Police and Gurgaon Traffic Police with the links. Add a few more links of the videos and the owner details from mParivahan app. They'll take action based on this.

I'm not on twitter but did send a complaint through Haryana police's online complaint portal. If anyone wants to tweet them as well, please do!

I just discovered this on Reddit. Quality examples of how not to drive on roads.

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

After reviewing some more dashcam footage, I'm beginning to wonder if I actually miss the bad drivers!!
1. Here's a car trying to come the wrong way on an exit on the Bangalore Chennai Highway near Ranipet.


2. And here's a car demonstrating how to make a uturn on a crowded traffic junction.


I still have a little more to review. So for those of you who are missing these bad drivers, there'll be a few more hopefully!

Today on my way back home from work, came across this gentleman crossing the Western Express Highway.

Traffic or no traffic rickshaw wala's will always be the same.



All this just to avoid a police checkpost just after the flyover.

Close call for both the lady and the other biker. She just switched on her indicator and went for the turn. Too much driving during lockdown I guess (she might have expected no vehicles around her).




I was easily doing 70 kmph here and I don't want to imagine their speed. Lucky I didn't turn left at that time to overtake the Brezza. Crazy driving!

Dude takes the oncoming lane and cuts back missing the truck by inches. You can see his dangerous move if you watch closely.



No idea what he was thinking. The signal had turned red for well over 5 seconds and you can see the vehicles of the other lane crossing the signal yet this dude tries to cut through. Really close call for the biker especially as it was raining.

Does anyone else feel the lockdown has made drivers even more idiotic? SUre, the sheer number of vehicles are down, but whatever vehicles that are on road drive like maniacs now that the roads are free.

An interesting revelation about European drivers after a sample survey labels the French and Greek drivers as ones, who share the top spot for hurling insults at other road users, the polling data suggested.

The full report here:-

https://www.thelocal.de/20200701/dri...vers-in-europe

Quote:
However, the poll found the Greeks were most likely (47 percent) to drive on the tail of the car in front of them and, with the French, to insult other drivers (70 percent). The Spanish, at 66 percent, were quickest to jump on their car horn, according to the research conducted in 11 countries by the Ipsos polling agency for roads operator Vinci Autoroutes. The Greeks, the study found, topped the list for dangerous road behaviour while the British came last.

According to EU data, some 22,800 road traffic fatalities were recorded in the 27 European Union countries in 2019. This was about 7,000 fewer than in 2010, representing a decrease of 23 percent. The number fell by two percent from 2018.
The 22,800 road fatalities for 27 EU countries are on a much lower side as compared to our figures for the calendar year 2018, when road accidents claimed 1,51,417 lives and caused injuries to 4,69,418 persons in India.

Notice how this idiot i10 driver cuts me off even after giving an indicator well before. He's something beyond stupidity can go!


P.S: Please ignore the wrong date and time stamp.
