This beautiful road is filled with rash drivers and takes away the pleasure of driving on a good, scenic rout. You can see slow trucks and cars criss-crossing to overtake. The cars dont hesitate to go to the road shoulder and beyond (?offroading!) and the come back to the road without watching for traffic.
Scania buses can be very intimidating and this Kallada omnibus literally forces the car to move as it happily overtakes weaving at high speed. I generally don’t go anywhere a Kallada bus as they are notorious for rash driving and accidents.
A car does an illegal turn into the highway and almost crashes into a bike and a car. This is on the Chennai Bangalore Highway.
You meet so many of these idiots driving trucks bravely on the wrong side of the highway. There are regular accidents on this highway due to this.
This is the Mysuru-Bengaluru highway in South India. Vehicles enter the highway without looking at all!
Unfortunately its not uncommon to see big vehicles drive on the wrong side of the highway. Their mantra seems to be “All is well that ends well. ” Somewhere on the Chennai-Vellore-Bangalore highway
Buses are notorious for forcing vehicles off the road as they overtake without a care in the world in India. This bus forces 2 vehicles off the road as it overtakes without a care in the world
What do you think of this two wheeler riding on the fast overtaking lane? Especially since he has chosen this lane to ride the wrong way right onto oncoming traffic……
The Kallada bus first overtook me from the left where the lane was ending, but I managed to squeeze in to the right most lane. I saw the brake lights flicker in the bus after a few moments and realised he just managed to avoid a car who was reversing on the highway!
Watch these bikers race on the highway with one biker trying to take a video of the other. This is on the Coimbatore – Salem – Vellore stretch. They were wearing no protective gear.
