June 22nd, 2010Chamiers Road Signal

This is how our motorists(99% educated) cut through to avoid going towards CIT ngr and take a U turn to enter Venkatnarayana Road. They are not bothered about the danger/inconvenience to them and others. Police of course are not bothered. May be they feel, if something happens, so much less motorists…?!

One more Chamiers Road signal photo. A group of two wheelers waiting to cross into Venkatnarayana road. You can see a person on a two wheeler going the wrong way at the right end too!

June 14th, 2008Be happy Chennai

The above picture taken in front of Charminar, Hyderabad is an accident. The cyclist in the photo was not in the original frame but came in when I clicked. Just zooming through, intersecting oncoming autos and nothing happened except for my heart. Then I found that this is how everyone behaves on road there. You don’t have to stop for anyone. You just go and others go around you. But then I saw a fight between a biker and an auto driver because of some brushing while on the way to Secunderabad. pBy the way the autos there don’t use meters but are very reasonable. I should say cheap compared to Chennai. Then autos at any other place is cheaper than at Chennai. Still the autos are looked at as underdogs by some here!pAnyways after a few days in Secunderabad and Hyderabad I thought I am going overboard with the situation in Chennai. Chennai traffic is faaaar better comparatively.
