Each and every country around the world offers its own different set of driving culture, mannerism, and funny practices. And it is equally interesting to get a first-hand experience of these varied facets while commuting on city roads. While you enjoy this city travel experiences there are a few experiences which are equally annoying and painful, both at the same time.
While driving in India, there are a few things which would take a toll of your head to the extent that it might burst. But relax, there are some easy way around on how to by-pass them and drive “stress-free”.
It doesn’t matter what type of vehicle you are on or at what point of time you are driving. With the second largest population of the world, one can certainly expect the roads here to be packed most of the time.
The HONKERS: This is the most common and certainly the most annoying category of drivers you will encounter on roads. They have this firm belief that irrespective of the lane, speed, time and type of road they are driving, they can expect to get a SPECIAL treatment.
The CRUISERS: They certainly don’t care in which lane or in whatever direction you are driving. This category of drivers will happily barge-in and drive in the most insane manner possible. They don’t mind risking their own lives and of other drivers. The most critical aspect about these drivers is the ultimate rush they would always demonstrate.
The JUMPERS: This category comprises of mostly 2-wheeler drivers, who simply love to jump between the lanes, bypassing vehicles of any size and most important without any “warning” or indication. They are least bothered about the direction of traffic. These drivers in peak traffic don’t mind encroaching the pavements dedicated for pedestrians- This is showcasing stupid and irresponsible behavior.
The BREAKERS: This category of drivers are silent as a ‘Ninja’ warrior. They would sometimes be driving rash or even in control. But when it comes to making a turn or changing the lane in a rush-hour traffic or otherwise they would simply plunge into taking that turn. Resulting in you ending up breaking the speed unevenly, and simply gazing at this driver looking like a fool. This category of drivers vary from college kids to old people.
These are some of the crazy head drivers I have encountered so far during my driving experience across several Indian cities. Do you know any of them?
If any of you drivers from the above categories who are reading this note- I humbly request to drive safe, take toll of others and their family members as well while driving. Thank you for cooperating.
Do share more such experiences from the hilarious and stupid experiences you have encountered with idiotic fellow drivers.
