Traffic

Wouldn't PRAJA have been a better option for BTP?

EnforcementTraffic

The Facebook page of the traffic police, set up two months ago, is a much-needed forum for Bangaloreans to bring the violator in uniform to book. More than 3,000 have already joined the page to share information and make evidence public. Many others are adding their comments.

InfrastructurePedestrian Infrastructure

I appriciate this facility by BTP/B-TRAC. This switch enables pedistrians to intervene automatic signal so that a green signal is forced for road crossing.

A few days back, I had to go to Electronics city with a friend of mine, I rarely go towards that side (Hosur Road) generally.

Kaggadasapura - Neglected Locality?

Traffic

Kaggadasapura is a negelected locality, as i feel it.

APAD - Non-Lane driving - Result declared

Traffic

 Location: NICE Road(Is that right name, or free-ad for Kheni saab?) , Hosur Road Junction(Clover Leaf), E-City Phase 1

Time: 11-Mar-2011 @8.25am

There is no need of explanation. We were blocked because of this accident. Perfect result of non-lane driving. Both drivers should win award(???) for non-lane driving. Police was busy in "negotiating" with parties.

Most annoying driver behaviours

Taking off from the APAD and DDC campaigns, I thought I'll try to note down the most annoying driver behavious that I keep coming across on an almost everyday basis. Here's my list, which may not be quite exhaustive, but which is generally in the order of annoyance to me:
