My experience in front of Jakkur Aerodrome . In reality it was much darker than what the video seems to show.

Come on you cannot expect cows to know the right side of way. They are an important part in are lives and can be seen all over North Bangalore. Yeshwanthpur area is notorious but even here they don't know the rules.

Please be considerate of these poor creatures, they are just looking for food. And don't startle them by honking at them.

I remember about 10 years back, in Malleshwaram, I was waiting for a cow to pass when an idiot on the opposite side blared his horn, the poor cow jumped and fell on my car damaging the fender and ORVM.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

The menace of wrong side driving is, of course, widely prevalent in Bangalore. But we have reached new heights when it is officially sanctioned, as it has been under the Nagwara flyover on narrow slip roads to join the Ring Road. Trafffic cops there have told me that wrong side driving is "allowed" as it is "not fair" to expect motorists to go 1 km for doing a U turn. Never mind that it causes absolute mayhem at the junction.

Now I see a cop officially posted to facilitate the movement of those coming on the wrong side.


We reach new lows every day.

Bengaluru bandh on Sept 26; institutions asked to stay shut

Transport services, including app-based auto rickshaws and cabs, likely to be affected as various driver unions plan to participate in the bandh.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

My friends are to arrive at KIAL tomorrow from Singapore. I understand that there may not be any public, app-based transport available, can I go to pick them up?

Yes, do go and pick them up. If the flight arrives early morning or late evening, then you should not have any issues going to pick them up. The goons that create trouble in Bangalore during these bandhs tend to finish their handiwork by the evening, and then go off to "celebrate" their "success".

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Heard there is a truck breakdown near Kadubeesinahalli causing traffic pile up on ORR from Marathahalli towards Sarjapur road side.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Ridiculously Red Ring Road at the moment. 2 hours for a 6km drive and still counting.

One truck costed thousands of man hours.

Traffic was heavy from noon itself when I commuted to Prestige tech park from Mahadevpura. Didnt find any truck breakdown or accident although navigation kept saying there is an accident ahead.

Currently there is a km long jam inside PTP itself.

I think it is just the looong weekend impact.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

As per BTP the pile up at eco space is due to water logging. Traffic on Agara flyover towards Ecospace is almost standstill even now.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

I am in office desk comfortably waiting from last few hours for traffic to reduce. Few of my colleagues are inside tempos just outside office from last few hours.

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

On a slightly positive note, traffic today on Bannerghatta road (towards city center direction) was relatively lesser than what I experience on weekday peak evening hours (6-7 pm).

Re: Rants on Bangalore's traffic situation

Traffic looks to have improved across the Eastern part of the city.

But one of the most congested days that we have seen
