The Seven Habits of a Highly Smart Driver in Chennai

You might have driven bikes (motorbikes) in your town or city, but if you come to Chennai, you have to follow these seven habits of a smartest driver in Chennai.

1. Accessories & Checks

No helmet. You are going to become smart. So make sure you have your cell phone and earphones. Mirror -Don’t check the side mirrors, because a “smart driver” will never use it. Horn- Make sure the horn is working, because you’ll be using it often.

2. Traffic Jams

Traffic jams are like bread-butter-jam for you (we are still in 2nd point, see you are already smart). You have “n” number of ways to get in between them, just like a circuit board.

3. Traffic signal

Very rarely, you’ll stop for red, that too if the traffic police in waiting on the other end to catch violators. Even though you stop, you are the “smart” driver right, so you should stop after the zebra crossing & STOP sign.

4. Pedestrian Crossing

If you see a group of people trying to cross the road, you have to increase the speed and make sure you get past them, before they cross the road. You should think like Will Smith in the movie Independence Day, on how he drove the space shuttle through the closing door on the alien space ship (final scene. Ref the image).

5. Honking

You should constantly honk, because you are smart and always you’ll keep yourselves busy. Again, very rarely you’ll get stuck in a traffic signal. Once the light turns green, immediately (with in 10 nanoseconds) you have to start honking. If you don’t do it, then the guy who is in front your bike will start eating Saravana Bhavan full meals in the middle of the road. OK, be careful.

6. Narrow Roads

Sometimes, traffic will build in narrow roads (Usually, it will be your smart friend, who parked his\er car in the middle of the road), in this situation you shouldn't wait, you should take the other side of the road and block the incoming traffic. The same is applicable while waiting to take bridges\subways.

7. Taking calls

Since you are smart, you are always busy. So if you get a call while driving, don’t park the bike on the side of the road to take the call. If you don’t have earphone, put the cell phone on your shoulder and bend your head for 45 degrees to support. Keep talking.

There are still more pointers, but these are essentials. 

Happy Driving!!
