The second one looks bad. I think I see some blood on the inside of the roof. My prayers with the people in the cars.

People drives like a maniac and idiot on noida expressway.

I have a FFE installed, young blood from institutes in greater noida try to race with me.

slow moving bikes and cars runs in the high speed lanes in expressway, they don't even know a fast moving safari or scorpio can blast them off the road.

The way Cabbies drive there. Really rediculous.

Yesterday i saw an indica full fledge burnt on expressway, noida.

Don't know when these fools will stop doing such stupid acts.

this is shear stupidity, no offense but most of the people from U.P dont have any driving sense at all. Worst than Delhi.

Gangsta - While I understand where you're coming from, please don't generalise all drivers from UP as bad drivers. Me & and quite a few other members hail from UP & are proud of it & dare I say many of us are very proficient drivers too.

Was that also from UP ?

Man, never generalise. You might have an annoying neighbour who happens to be from a place you do not like, but that does not mean everyone from there is as annoying.

In that case, imagine what Team-BHP would think of people from New Delhi.

I'm sorry guys. I take my words back but i said "Most of them" not "all of them". I'm from U.P too... Its not like that i'm from Delhi so i don't like U.P. My origin is from U.P.

Again i said, "Most of the drivers" not "all of them" Please don't take me wrong.

Actually, Ishaan, even you'd agree that a typical say, UP14 (gzb) driver is much more liable to be aggressive (not a matter of driving sense) for two simple reasons:
a. The chaos in Noida and gzb (zero red light discipline esp in noida, or avoiding all those big buses on the ALT gzb route that drive like maniacs).
b. Most of those UP14 drivers often drive long distances, so like anyone of us, would have a high chance of having been stuck up somewhere so by the time they'd enter delhi, would want to drive fast to catch up - like even we do on a long commute day.

That is prolly what Gangsta means, than insinuate anything else. Which while quite wrongly worded, is not too far from reality. Heck, I became a much rasher driver once I started riding/driving 45-50-70km a day. When I used to go sleeping by office cab, I was a peaceful guy on the weekend times

phamilyman, I drive a UP14 car, live in Ghaziabad and drive 28 KMs one way to work (in Okhla); and know umpteen others who do the same. And we are no less or more aggresive than the average Delhiite.

Well you sure have some misconceptions, when was the last time you were in Noida. People do tend to jump red-lights on minor intersections, but at the major ones, discipline is as much forced as in Delhi.

Wake up and smell the coffee dear. Driving fast in Delhi to make up time lost in Noida, you must be dreaming.

The 14 KMs I drive in Noida take about 20 minutes, and the 14 KMs I drive in Delhi take 45 minutes in the morning and 1 hour in evening.

If you were not able to cope up with long driving, this doesn't mean anyone won't be. Infact this long driving had made me realize that it's better to drive clamly instead of driving rashly and stress myself. 'Coz the time saved will be minuscle compared to the total driving time.

Ok Guys,

we are all going

Anyways I wouldn't say that the noida expressway is the only expressway to hell, The NH8 highway to jaipur is as bad, specially the Gurgaon part, There is an accident everyday on this part of the highway, its just that some of us don't post it here. like for example today while coming to wok, I saw a truck compltely turtled upside down with its rear axle 100 meters away from it, the cab of the truck totally smashed, the engine was out of its bay. It was one of the worst wrecks i have seen till now on this highway.

The NH8 gurgaon highway is as accident prone as the Noida expressway.
