    Default Motorcyclists behavior on Lahore Roads

    I am grown up in Lahore and i Love Lahore, even the traffic of Lahore has increased multifold but still its a lovely city. By seeing the very indecent behavior of motorcyclists in Lahori road i started thinking/ investigating what is wrong with us, i started to think when i was a motorcyclists back in my college days 1992~94, i realized few facts and i would like to share with you (as personal opinion):

    In early days i love motorcycling, had a two stroke Kawasaki 100 Japan assembled 86 model, nice vibes, nice sound, i really enjoyed that time (even i am unable to enjoy on the same level now on my 2014 civic). i feel now 90% of motorcyclists just use motorcycle as a conveyance not a joy ride (even though i used my bike as a conveyance but people on those days love their rides), most of motorcycle in lahore are CD70s which in my opinion has no comparison to a two stroke Yamaha, Kawasaki 125 etc of 20 years back, thats why these people are a bit irritant on roads, feel uncomfortable to see people in cars and do the activities which are not safe and good for even themselves (bruising a brand new cars bumper hurts).

    this is a lackness for all of us (including me) that we feel big cars, SUVs and costly things give pleasure, i feel one can enjoy a ride of a simple bycycle if he changes his mode, take care of the rights of everyone and he surely will be taken care by others.

    sorry if you feel its a bhashun but i expressed myself.

    it is said that your driving style shows your nature or it shows how peaceful or aggressive you are.
    and it is correct.
    so the wrong/ fast/ not obeying laws driving shows how frustrated we are (both, our young generation and men having family). Sometimes I am surprised, rather shocked to see that when I am moving on speed of 60~70kmph on my car, a guy with two females on CD 70 bike crosses the car, and that too without helmet .... ...and I am always like...WTH....

    Along with the frustration our general behavior of "Allah bachanay wala hy/ agr moat aai hay tau koi rok nae skta/ Koi gal nae" is also reason of such reckless driving.
    Awareness needs to be created, even educated people don't bother about driving/ bike riding rules.

    Summers are here now... and more its hot outside, more would be agitation in awaam' driving, more fights on roads on choti choti baatein, wardens will be more aggressive to public, and public in return would be more hostile... this will continue until people are educated, traffic sense awareness from school levels, and through strong media campaigns etc etc
    Leave sooner, drive slower, live longer

    True. Most motorcyclists are bad road users and an annoying species. But the same can be said about taxi, raksha, bus wagon etc

    Now, speaking of taking pleasure while riding, there are some people who take pleasure in riding their bikes. But then there are those who are ready to ruin that pleasure in every way possible.

    Every single motorcyclist that has bumped into our cars had the same old excuse:"ham g'reeb aadmi hain, jaane dou". That's enough to boil a sane person's blood.

    Another thing; if they are too poor to afford a helmet, they shouldn't bother keeping a motorcycle in the first place.

    Actually, i'd disagree. I don't 'ignore' (or turn a blind eye) from such stuff happening. Education is needed for these individuals. Since our Traffic Police is doing nothing in particular in this regard, something had to be done.

    I can bet that 90 out of 100 bikers have never read traffic laws. Which is why they don't know how to overtake someone properly. They don't know how to turn their bikes with giving proper hand signals, and they definitely don't care if they stop in the middle of the road.

    Another thing, if our Government has made Helmet mandatory, so much that they are punishing with traffic tickets if you don't have one, i don't see any reason why freaking Rear View Mirrors aren't included in them.

    My mission was not to make another division by motorcyclist and car wallas, just a thought to share so may be someone in early age read it and we make some change, our young generation has potential and energy we need to guide them not label all riders with some harsh tagging as our own young brothers, family members may use motorcycle.

    I think if big cities being provided by good public transport 50% of motorcyclists will prefer to go by public transport, even i myself will prefer pub tr on my car if i get a decent service till my office in Lahore.
