This one is for the members who are from NCR Delhi. I find that traffic of Delhi is becomig more and more hazardous. You go to any major road any time of the day, it will be full of traffic and I find those driving Motor-cycles are even more dangerous than any other mode of transport. Today only I met with an accident,while driving my scooter, wherein two motorcycles were involved one was ahead of me and another was behind me the one ahead of me stopped the vehcile suddently, consequently I had to apply brakes and the one following me could not put the brakes faster and hit me and we both fell down. It is becoming a nightmare to drive on the roads of Delhi. Anyone who drives in Delhi knows it........I would like to know expereinces from other members and how we can cope with ever increasing traffic?

for the last ten years i have been living in delhi but traffic system has not yet improved. actually there is no parking system. everyone is free to park their vehicles on their wish. secondly, from other region lot of vehicles comes in delhi daily which cannot be stopped at any cost. thirdly, there is no penalty. fourthly, still there must be more flyovers for commuters to run frequently in delhi then we can meet our requirements. and last but not the least, we should curb corruption to implement strict traffic rules by the Delhi Police.

I am not from NCR Delhi. I can understand what you are saying. Glad that you are all right after the accident. Personally, I feel hazardous traffic not only happens to Delhi, but also occurs in many countries. As long as there are people who drives, there is bound to be heavy traffic especially at peak hours. For me, I would not drive and take public transport. This is because our public transport has special lane, and can avoid the jam. The other alternative is to walk. Walking is good for health too, and there is no human jam yet. Other measures is not for me to comment because it is not within my control :P

Eventhough iam not a resident of delhi i an aware of this traffic problem.Even chennai is worst in traffic and we people know this quite well and hence we start an hour early and only then we can reach our destination in time crossing all traffic blocks, road divertion etc., I live in an area which is the big industrial estate and thousands of people commute from various places to this area.There were times were i have waited more than an hour in buses to cross a particular signal and vehicles queing in large numbers.Only now the govenment is building some flyovers in most parts of chennai..hope in recent years this traffic problem will be controlled to some extent.
