More often than not you will find the news of road rage in the city, some being absolutely scary while others being sorta mild. And while travelling on the city roads you will, at least once, come across one of these people who’re always hot-headed. They can be identified as people getting out of their car to shout unpleasantries and then driving away muttering a slew of colourful words. 

2. The Nose Picker

The people who fall into this category can be very easily spotted on the roads. You will mostly find them while you’re stuck in the infamous traffic jams of Ring Road or maybe Ashram! You will find them sitting behind the wheels digging in deep and lost in their own train of thoughts. As gross as it sounds, you will find a number of people guilty of this habit, all you need to do is look around.

3. The Breakfast In Car Person

Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, but there a few of us who always wake up late and end up rushing through the morning routine and have our brekkie in the car. You might find these types of people in the long toll queue of Gurgaon or Noida, making the most out of their first meal of the day while manoeuvring the car.

4. The Local Bass-ic DJ

Most of us know one such person who absolutely loves EDM to the core! They love it so much that they have customised the car to have the best bass speakers installed at the rear of the car and end up playing their fave music at the highest volume. You can quite literally see the bass of the music in the car vibrations or maybe feel it on your back if you’re sitting in the backseat! 

5. The Lewis Hamilton Wannabe

The expressway connecting Delhi to Noida is a wide road with great space for the moving traffic and is just a great driving experience for someone who loves to drive. But there are people who consider themselves to be the next ‘Lewis Hamilton’ and don’t just drive at a high speed but in zig-zag lanes, taking over cars and maybe even completing laps!  

6.The Next Beyonce Of The Town

You will wonder how this is different from the DJ? Well, these folks are the one that you will mostly find on the neighbourhood roads like those of GK or maybe Vasant Vihar. You can spot them playing their fave track and singing along like it’s the next Indian Idol and maybe throwing in some dance moves every once in a while. Yep, they’re pretty passionate when it comes to singing! 

7. The One Who Loves To Honk Their Emotions Out!

Oh, these people are the ones contributing to the noise pollution of the city. You will find them everywhere in the city be it on the narrow lanes of GTB Nagar, the wide roads of the expressway or the neighbourhood roads of Vasant Vihar, honking like there’s no tomorrow. You don’t need to do much, you can easily identify these people by the cacophony of their car horns!

8. The Patient One

These people are the ones who just love driving and probably even have all the time in the world. They’re the ones who don’t bother changing lanes in traffic jams, they wait for the Uber driver to pick up their ride and even wait patiently in the parking queue of the malls. Yep, they actually do teach us the virtue of patience and some of us must defo take notes.  

9. The Slow And Not So Steady One

There are people who drive fast and then there are people who drive so slow, that even two-wheelers end up taking over them abiding by the speed limits. You will often find them at crowded intersections like that of Munirka or even Hudson Lane, stuck in the middle and slowly moving forward with rather too much caution. We can safely say, they’re often a part of deadlocks in such situations!

10. The Annoyed One

Lastly, these are the people who’re always unhappy with Delhi roads. You can often find them complaining about the terrible traffic jam at I.T.O., people driving a little too fast, autorickshaws plying on the road, the number of speed breakers and basically everything that relates to the city roads.
