At times, I feel we need to have super powers to see through the vehicle infront to check if there is a biker who may just decide to take a right turn from the Left most shoulder without even checking

Wait a minute, that lorry was parked? I thought it was waiting to let the Isuzu cross!

Isuzu is driving with a typical might is right mindset. Would be interesting to see him go against a KL private bus.

Be careful what you say: this idiot might just accept that as an interesting challenge!

I remember the lorry to be moving. But when I checked the footage, it did seem to be stationary. I am not sure. If it was moving, the Isuzu guy is more in the wrong.

No car / vehicle is too mighty to push off motorcyclists to the sides. That is a lesson he will learn one day the hard way. Hope none gets injured when that happens.

Bikers are like flood waters, everywhere & flowing faster & dangerous than you could imagine
Yesterday I was picking my wife up from the office of a sister concern in industrial area. There was a truck parked by the side of a road on a narrow road. I was crossing the same in the right side in my car maintaining legal speeds (barely 20kmph). All of sudden I see is the front wheel of a commuter bike came out from the front of stationery truck. I immediately brakes hard & honked to ward of the idiot whom my car could have hit if I weren't alert enough. Thankfully no meeting of vehicle bodies happened & but it was enough to scare me & the idiot.

Caught this police car driving on the wrong side of the road and then running the light! How can we hope for people to follow the rules when the enforcers break them! Blocking an entire lane on the wrong side and jumping the red light putting others at risk!

Why cant our people just wait for a few seconds at a light? The worst part is that I caught up with the car in just a few hundred meters!

These are the small things that will have bad consequences when someone's luck runs out!

You are being unreasonable by expecting fellow road users to adapt to your presence . We expect you to have night vision, see through eyes & more when you drive in India.

More than bad driving, it was the super loud exhaust that was irritating. We had the windows closed and still it was loud.

Excuse the commentary .

Commentary was the best part

As for the exhaust, sadly it was one of those cases of all noise and no go

Mango skin indeed!

AFAIR, Ernakulam cops used to be very tough on the noise pollution stuff. I was caught a few times for the Vibrosonics in my Rapid, around Kakkanad/ Palarivattom.

Hey, in a world where stickers add an HP or 2, this surely would have added, like 2.5 HP, maybe?!

EPIC!

Also, the video seemed like the swift was all show and no go. I expected it to take off given that exhaust note!

MSRTC Driver in Raigad district crosses the bridge on an inundating river - this is not only unsafe and bad , but perilously dangerous and risking the lives of the passengers.

This is the driver trying to be a hero or maybe the side effect of watching way too many larger than life masala hero movies. I bet some jobless folks in Instagram must have even put out posts with deep back ground music like the ones on Tik Tok. Contrary to opinions here, many people see this as a 'Skill' and guy will be hailed a hero. Most probably some of the passengers in the bus must have even clapped for him once they crossed that section.

Met this scooterist in a bit of a tight situation. Really don't know what these chaps are thinking when driving. To cut a long story short, managed to save a bad situation.
