Well this expressway is just about 20kms long, and it has as many accidents as 200km long expressways is definitely saying something.

I was referring to the part of the expressway from Mahipalpur to the Sohna road exit.

Have seen accidents happening on this stretch everyday and not just trucks.

If you want reality, I think the worst drivers in the NCR area are from the following registrations (in no particular order):

UP 14, UP 16, HR 26, HR 29, HR 51.

Most of us would agree but would it be right for me to come out & say hey, most people from UP & Haryana are the worst drivers?? I don't think so & there is no way we can prove that. Like that "Why are Scorpio's driven badly" thread the discussion will just be crap & a lot of people would be offended.

What Gangsta has & I have & you have are opinions and as we all know not all of our opinions should be posted in public, whether they're right or wrong is a secondary fact.

You forgot the worst of the lot - HR55; all the call center Indicas, Taveras & Innovas.

By the way, both my cars are HR26 but I'll forgive you

Am I missing something here about UP 21 guys and ones in red?

by the way Ishaan, I forgive you too, since mine is also HR 26, and I just hope that GD doesn't see this thread or you may just see a big black beast with horns tearing down on you on your rearview mirrors.

Those were indeed my views. But yeah, appreciate your take on it.

ntomer,

bhai dil pe le lete ho. And like ishan said, these are all our individual opinions, and airing them don't help no one. I'm done with this discussion.

KD, you paint me as a one hell of road maniac, taking offence at all things said & written. If I had done so, would have been a wreck at this age. I'm a happy go lucky Taurean and it generally takes quit a lot to provoke; a typical Bull trait...

Yes, my Scorp is a HR 26 registration and it is not driven rashly. On the contrary, I'm a very safe driver, stopping at signals even in the dead of the night, though most have advised me against it due to the increased cases of violence/loot on the roads.

But yes, while driving cut me in or mess with my ride, then my suggestion is either pump iron, arm yourself with a Mauser or else simply pray to the Almighty....
