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:
- People having (Corollas, Civics etc) drive their cars on high beams mostly.
- 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.
- 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.
- Continuous use of HID's as they think that we are something.
- Continuous use of mobile phones.
- Unusual use of Police Escort.
- 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).
- 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).
- Most of the Bikers block road which is usual in every city of Pakistan & has become trend for Bikers and Car owners.
- 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..
