This driver tried a non-existent overtaking maneuver twice when I was overtaking a truck and got upset that he had to stay behind a small car. So he overtook me when I allowed him to and did a few brake checks on me – seems to be a very smart driver!!
Indian highways are filled with murderous driver like this trucker who seems to be having a jolly good time driving on the wrong side of the road without a care in the world. The red Swift and I had a close call.
The car that was exiting from the petrol bunk didnt bother to check for oncoming traffic. Thankfully I had enough space on my right lane to swerve after gently braking to avoid crashing into this car. The trucks parked on the road completely masked our ability to see each other. I saw him slowly leave the bunk but assumed he would pause and look before he entered the highway.
This is the Mysuru-Bengaluru highway in South India. Vehicles enter the highway without looking at all!
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!
You’d think that slow speed on rough roads would make it easy to stop if the truck in front of you slowed. This car was tailgating the truck at speeds of about 30-40 KMPH and almost failed to brake on time when the truck abruptly slowed at a bump. You can see the puff of smoke as his wheels lock and the tire skids. I kept a very safe distance and barely needed to slow down for this.
At beyond the 40 second mark, you will notice the green government bus nearly sandwich the Maruti car against the median. The traffic is haphazard and the reason is the highway maintenance vehicle watering the plants amidst traffic! Everything can happen on Indian Highways!
