    nikonsun, I agree with you. I always check for the blind spot. But, don't expect this in India. There is no unified policy of educating and providing license in India. On highways I always honk or use my headlights to alert the vehicles before I overtake.

    Do not switch on fog lamps in city, unless you really require them, those lamps create far more glare on eyes. Fog lamps are not ment to show off them as you have.

    this post reminds me the day when we decided to leave our car for a highway trip just bcuz we were informed abt the worse road conditions!! we hired an indica taxi and the whole trip went ok! but while returning on a single lane heavy traffic highway we were forced to get thrilled! we were behind a truck at around 70km/hrs and here there were two buses honking with their full pressure horns wanted to overtake both our car and the truck which was going ahead of us..and there were a few instances when the bus behind back came parallel to us and still he was honking like hell but had to slow down due to oncoming traffic! i wanna know what to do in such situations?? where u dont even have much options to protect urself like changing the lanes cuz of a narrow single lane road and where u cant even pick up some speed because of the big dumper going ahead where u cant even break because the ones coming behind wont even care if they hit u because they are driving a govt. vehicle!

    Best you can do is to slow down and let the crazy vehicle pass you, if road conditions doesn't allow to give way just pray he doesn't hit you. CTU bus drivers are the worst followed by Punjab and Haryana roadways.
    Sometimes, I wish our car's come with a loud speaker on the roof and a mic inside instead of horns through which we can shout anything we want to crazy drivers like that.

    Just pull the buss driver aside and give him a good blah, even the passengers in the buss will appreciate you as we need someone to open the talk. By doing this type of maniac driving he is risking the life of innocents.............

    Traffic lights are a great life leveller. I've almost always noticed people speeding agressively loose their advantage at the next set of traffic lights. Most times, the time saved doesn't really amount to anything substantial & for the risk taken.

  9. WOW!!!even i share the same thought...Sometimes even after honking umpteen number of times most of the people are least bothered,that is when i feel like shouting at them..:drinks

What can be done? as you ve hit a lady, will the onlookers be silent, they ll start their routine shower of abuse !!
