India can be intimidating. Especially when it comes to driving down its lanes, roads and alleys, you sure will face some classic driver stereotypes. And yes, some do seem funny while others simply get on your nerves. Yet, we somehow cannot strip the image off that India has some real “model” drivers.
He changes into a shirt from his tee—the driver who is perpetually late for work
Indian roads are clustered with these corporate guys who have late nights and early mornings at work. Where else could they change but at the steering wheel? And also drink their tea or coffee right there!
The honking guy—he can barely ease his nerves
We doubt if he actually ever was in an emergency. But well, he is that irritating driver who beeps his horn so loud that the ones in front eye him with vengeance.
Public nuisance of a driver—that man who barely knows how to drive well and meanders along the road
And no he does not look like Saif Ali Khan in Race. Rather, he looks like he has just escaped from some mad gathering!
The signal-jumper—probably he finds that cool
This kind surely draws inspiration from movies where jumping the signal is sexy! He breaks the rules, argues and tries to bribe his way forward!
Our busy corporate driver whofinds it hard to keepaway from emails and calls– While the wireless headset is struck on his years he pays more attention to his calls than the steering wheel. Disgusting! And he has serious competition from those that take calls takeeven without the headset! Is any call more urgent that a life?
Run Lola Run—Seems straight out of such a situation, this driver is either on the rush for a date or movie!
He anticipates the nags and curses his GF or buddies could shower on him, and drives like there is no tomorrow.
The CIA-Sorta driver—they inspire us to think why they look so detective-like
There is this one driver you would find how looks as if he holds some national secrets and is super-suspicious!
The head banger—he sways to the music on the car stereo and cares a damn if you are watching.
Who does he think he is? Justin Beiber?
The stacker who believes his car is a horde-house for everything
From stash cans to empty cola tins, a round ofcar cleaningbrings strange things out!
That too-innovative driver who belives his car window is his balcony grill!
To hang the wet hanky and to put sticky notes on!
The sexed-up driver – who is out on a double ride
We mean when the driver has a hottie beside him. He can barely see the fray and often looks more at her—than the rear-view.
The pet-crazy driver who is on a joy-ride
A woofing dog or a mewing cat is tolerable—but what if he went on to carry a giraffe? Remember—Hangover? I have lost count of how many times I got a scare seeing that Labrador hanging his neck out of such cars! Almost as if the pets are out to prey on us!
He drives as if he is on a road-trip—cool, chilled but a show-off!
His car is fancy and he knows how to drive to get the glares!
The one who cares a s**t for road-signs
..And then they say they can’t read the language on the sign well!
The tortoise like drivers..
..They indeed think slow and steady wins the race. But hey, who wants to race against them?
Then there are thosewho believe the car is the best place for beer and fag!
We almost believed the engine caught fire, when we came across a super-fagger! Drinkand drive is another chapter here!
The Angry Young Driver..
He drops abuses so fast that we cannot even beep them out!
The patrolling driver with an eye for any street fight
Of course, he only takes joy in viewing the scene and never moves out to help anyone in the mess!
Indian traffic is crazy, so are the roads but the drivers are just typical! How many of these kinds did you meet?
