    Exclamation Hyper Hybrid Drivers!!!!!!

    dear fellows,

    (a bit self praising first ) I am a cool, humble and disciplined driver having a ride Honda City Vario 2008, what i observed in my last 10 days in Lahore that 3 Toyota prius drivers gave me a very harsh, provoking and unwanted hyper response, some only for a small horn asking for the way on a three lane Shaukat Khanam road, one started racing with me even though i had no intention to do so, one gave me a side after crossing me, what is this? my self assumptions is:



    • Toyota Prius is a speedy car and you get a rough mood when you ride it (i dont know as i still not experienced it).
    • this is the same "Price Conscious discriminative minds" who feel City 2008 is a cheap car parallel to their ride.
    • Or its Lahore's Heat
    • Only a coincident where all were having Prius??


    Have your say please!
    IT IS NICE TO BE IMPORTANT, BUT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO BE NICE

    They are frustrated because they will have to suffer heavy loss due to current budget hybrid scheme.

    5 reasons coming to mind are:

    1-Adverse affect from playing too much need 4 speed
    2-Recently watched fast and the furious
    3-If a fruit cake of a mehran owner can attempt to revisit classic 80s knight rider. Why cant a prius owner do the same?
    4-Get a headstart from a beautifully maintained city.... Ego not accepting to loose...
    5-Certainly the heat.

    or maybe its your driving...

    you dont give way to others (maybe)
    you move to a faster lane when a speeding car is coming from behind (maybe)
    you dont watch where you are going (maybe)
    you dont maintain a 360 degree awareness of whats around you while u drive (maybe)
    you dont give way to others while turning to another road and move your car in front of them bit by bit(maybe)
    you dont know how to use a round about. you stop other cars on the round about just to get on a round about thereby destroying the purpose of construction of a round about (maybe)

    I am pretty sure you are one of the poor drivers who think they are sophisticated and self disciplined but cause hindrance to the traffic on the road.

    please dont mind what i am saying and analyse your own driving.

    by the way m also having a city vario in my house atm. it doesnt accelerate very fast and does make those behind you impatient. what i do is when i am standing at the front in traffic at a red signal i put the car in S and accelerate fast so that it doesnt create annoyance to those behind me or i move to a slow lane so that the faster cars would over take me.

    Love your 3rd point! I just had an experience with a stupid mehran driver on the Islamabad highway today. The idiot was trying to over take me from the right side - I was on the right most (fast) lane! In that rush hour - this behavior is completely ridiculous. I surely wanted to keep going and then hit him from my right and his left, but then I didn't want to damage my car. So in the end, I had to move slightly towards the left, while also bearing honks from the poor guy on my left and still trying to maintain distance from the mehran so that he doesn't hit me. And the guy had a huge smile on his face, he 'll go home and tell everyone today "Aaj aik ssivuuc ko overtake kiya aur woh bee rush hour mai".

    But I will do one thing - I will definitely share his registration number here. The least I can do to cool myself probably - and yeah, also to warn other brothers to be wary of this guy if they happen to come across his ferari-in-his-own-fantasy car.

    Islamabad Registered MF-257 (or MF-957 the numbers were messed up), white Mehran, driver was wearing MI2 type Tom Cruise specs

    No offense to Mehran owners, some of them are really civil and drive properly, but it's not too infrequent that you see rash driving by Mehran owners (and XLi/GLi owners - the two most popular cars in the country ).

    With due apologies to the OP for going off-topic Haven't really had an experience with a hyper Hybrid driver, though, a couple of friends did mention once or twice where a hybrid gave them an unsolicited provocation for race (they were on Altis)
