Hyderabad Traffic

I just had a near death experience today riding my bike to office. And tell you what, it is not something new in Hyderabad.Whether you see a BMW or some tin can with wheels, you have a maverick driver behind the wheel. Where on earth do you find traffic rules that are applicable only from 8 am to 8 pm? And if you try to follow these "nonexistent" rules, others make you look like a chump. There is total disregard for others' safety. Traffic signals do not mean anything more than blipping lights around the corner. It’s quite frustrating to see even so called educated people practicing these sort of “senseless” driving. I don't figure whether it's just a mad rush or men trying to get their pregnant wives to a hospital, everyone seems to be in crisis to reach "somewhere" in a jiffy.

We are witnessing Hyderabad developing into a Cosmopolitan (at least people say so..), it’s about time we have matching traffic etiquettes.
