7 Types of drivers you will meet on Indian roads
Are you a seasoned driver on Indian roads or a newbie? Either way we know this post will interest you because we all have met at least some of these drivers on Indian roads. May be you’re one of them too. Find out!
1. Reckless over-taker from the Left
We all know that if you may overtake you shall do that from the driver’s right hand-side. But there are some of us who have ‘direction-issues’. And so every driver has to be vigilant about that driver suddenly over-taking with their car or bike from the left.
These are people with anger issues. They love fighting and no act is too small to not incite a fight. Honk at them, overtake them or did you just happen to brush their car with your bike in a chock-a-block traffic? Gods save you. Its showdown time!
3. The F1 Driver
These people grew up playing car racing games. What they don’t quite understand is that the graphics of these games never featured an Indian city for a reason. They modify their cars and can go from 0 to stupid in a micro second. Why is there a need for speed? Guys, seriously. Take it easy.
4. The Honker
Start. Honk. Stop. Honk. Turn. Honk. Stuck in Traffic. Honk. Reverse. Honk.
Basically they just love the sound of honking and can’t quite control themselves whenever they get an opportunity. They believe horns are magical instruments which will make their driving problems disappear miraculously. *Honk*
They take the phrase ‘go slow’ way too seriously. They could give a tortoise a run for its money. Following the speed limit is something but going slower than a snail is well out rightly annoying. There are people waiting for you to clear the way, MOVE!
6. The Rebel
This driver does not believe in following rules. Traffic signals? It’s okay if he jumps it, everyone else can wait. No parking? He’s been taught one car won’t make a difference. No horn please? He’s a rebel, remember? He wants to honk and so he shall. He’s out on the streets to rebel.
7. Respectful One
This one’s the ideal driver. Follows traffic rules, does not horn incessantly, gives way to pedestrians and doesn’t indulge in rash driving. Sounds like you? Good!
We all can relate to at least one of the drivers mentioned above and while we’ll laugh most of these away, we must know that driving recklessly can cause irreversible damage to us and others. Safety while driving should be prime and yes, a good car insurance only complements it. Stay safe and drive safe!
