    Default Lack of Driving Ethics.....Serious Problem of our Society

    Dear all,

    There r some serious issues we r facing on roads in our daily life, launching of this thread dosn't mean to hurt anyone but to spread awareness in our community, as per my observation em raising the following points;


    1-Badly use of unnecessary Horn and dippers and High Beam (mostly by Commercial Vehicles and Corolla users) in XLI,s and 2OD,s in Black and White Color having black ribbon on the back)

    2-Mostly these vahicles prefer to drive on Right Lane and do not give way if anyone wants to overtake.

    3- Most of the time they prefer to overtake from left side.

    4- Whereever the line discipline required mostly on Check Posts or Barriers, they prefer to go beyond the line to reach early with interuption for those who r waiting in the line.

    5- I have also observed that they start their journey with High Beam, even they dont bother to low the lights, i think for them the purpose of High Beam is only for more visibility and light and nothing else for others.

    6-They drive with minimum Distance from other vahicles on road.

    7-The most ever stupidity i seen is activation of Reverse lights with break lights.

    8-Red light on signals seems to be more irritating for them, hardly they bother to stop on it, and then put their hands on Horn and High Beam on yellow light.

    9-They don’t know about Speed Limits that differ place to place shown on traffic sign boards and enjoy over speeding without knowing the limitations.

    Now members r welcome to post ur suggestions and comments and share your experience to take some corrective measures.

    most people do not use indicators which leads to many accidents

    if the procedure of getting license is made corruption free then many problems can be cured
    you are trying to say they give left indicator and trun right?

    Well..yeah...that happens abroad...and in Pakistan, on the other hand as to my last post, at intersections / crossroads / turnings, MAJORITY of the people would dip their lights wildly at you, signaling you to get the F out of the way

    WHY

    one of two things will happen,
    SECURITY ALERT
    DISCIPLINARY ACTION

    to apply this to traffic. All police enforcements in the city should be handed to the likes of highway patrol and the licensing authority should be of vigilant people and also have eye/hearing testing facilities etc. And we should have a car health system too, if your chassis structure is questionable - OUT

    I know a blind man in Pakistan who has a valid driving license.

    That way we will get rid of

    1 - the stupid aunties driving with no sense of direction or seatbelt etc.
    2 - the stupid kids who are high on drugs and have guards with weapons on display
    3 - the idiot bus drivers who dont have a clue how to operate a bus
    4 - the stupidly retarded male drivers who dont give a damn about road rules
    5 - All the population using HIDs in headlamps not designed for them
    6 - The loud exhaust population
    7 - The CD70-CG125 dumb idiot population who think they are better then rossi on his machine
    8 - The engine swap gang (who think its cool to stuff a 2.2 litre engine into a car originally having a 1.0)

    The license should become a very protected document that can show - felonies, challans etc upon inquiry

    You are right zulfiqar, above mentioned are one the main reasons of traffic hams, accidents, and injuries on roads

    EDIT, this can be noted, if ure driving in dust or fog, ul observe the right beam going up while the left one downish
    In Pakistan shouldn't it be the opposite (our road signs are on the left)

    yes, you are probably right, in right hand drive cars, the right low beam goes lower than the left one so as not to disturb the oncoming traffic. the left low beam is slightly higher. it was so in my vitz. and you can easily notice this thing when the car is parked facing a wall and you switch on the lights.

    Let me see if I can make a short-list of traffic irregularities, that I despise:

    1. When I am driving in a single lane and the overtaking car from the front, flashes lights at me. My question is to that person is that you are overtaking despite the fact you see me in my lane and you are flashing lights and expecting me to stop so that you can continue overtaking. I think overtaking should be done, when no on-coming traffic is present.

    2. Again single lane situation, I am in a traffic jam and waiting in my lane for the traffic to move, then what happens, here comes a car(s) from behind and they are driving in the lane for the on-coming traffic. When the situation gets messy, they will then try to squeeze in my lane...

    3. Again, single lane situation, the on-coming car wants to make a right-turn in-front of me and flashes lights to tell me to stop, so they can make a turn. I think the proper way is to turn on signal indicator and wait; and if someone is in an emergency, well then turn on the hazards lights.

    4. Here's another one, the traffic is moving and suddenly someone decides to stop in the middle or the side of the road, no indication, just stops to perhaps to look at a shop or whatever, daydream? and the worst part is their break lights are not working!

    I guess there are many more and some that I do as well...

    A very good topic and discussion going on.. I must appreciate everyone discussing on this topic..

    Coming to the topic that here in Hyderabad, the roads are comparatively smaller than Karachi but the traffic is hell stupid as comparing to Karachi. The roads are f***** up by truck & lorry drivers especially on Hyderabad to Karachi National Highway. The condition of road is really sick & specially for small cars (like I drive a Mehran) is hard to move fast because the road has big bumps & small ditches!! But If you see the road conditions of Hyderabad in city than they are just OK!!!

    Some points from my side of driving in Hyderabad:

    1. People having (Corollas, Civics etc) drive their cars on high beams mostly.
    2. People having black money buying big cars & rice them up with HID's & Exhaust Tips & move this way that they are big "Shoda" of Hyderabad & no one is rich than them and no one has this type of car.
    3. People having cars have police sirens with Mic system & if they stop in a traffic jam then they start these type of sirens and harass people that they are "Wada Marhoon" & keep of honking it unless some one gives him/her road to pass which is difficult to move in traffic jam.
    4. Continuous use of HID's as they think that we are something.
    5. Continuous use of mobile phones.
    6. Unusual use of Police Escort.
    7. If you are driving in your lane at constant speed & following rules, then fellow behind your car will honk you & overtake from anywhere & stare at you like that you just took his wife on a date or you did some wrong & he'll continuously stare at you even if someone is with family. (The quite irritating part for everyone).
    8. People having DVD players in their cars will see movies, video songs & not concentrating on road while driving. (I have even seen boys watching nude films or XXX films in car & they donot realize that everyone is watching them but they say that its fashion).
    9. Most of the Bikers block road which is usual in every city of Pakistan & has become trend for Bikers and Car owners.
    10. People taking out their cars from the parking & send their guards, servants etc to stop traffic. If someone doesn't stops then they keep on saying that "Sahab gari nikal rahay hain thori dair ruk gaye toh mar jao ge kya?". This happened with me too. I just came out of my car. Opened unknown Sahab's Civic's door & said that "Ill-literate Sahab ke bachay jaldi gari nikalo, saari traffic tumhari baap ki nokar nahin hai jo itni dair tumhari fankari ki wajah se hari ho" & he was like Ok Ok!

    Allah Ta'ala please give some senses to Ill-literate Pakistani Drivers..!! Ameen..
