For the Love of … Motorcycles?

Aunty Acid motorcycle

Oooooh… I wish I had a TANK !

Nothing … and I mean nothing … irritates me as much as the motorcycle riders in #Karachi.

As my father loves saying, correctly, “five fingers of your hand are not the same” – likewise I don’t expect all drivers to be the same nor to drive as his/her co-driver does.  But there must be some basis for uniformity, safety and correct driving.

We all have an obligation to one another to drive rationally, safely and within the law (as I believe I do) – and that’s where our bikers fail miserably.

Not following the rules of the road is one thing but crass, irresponsible driving is what they excel in- weaving between lanes, “cruising” in the fast lane, overtaking on the wrong side and not having adequate safety, especially with a family on board, are but a snapshot of my case against them.

…and when there’s an accident because of his mistake, it’ll never be the biker’s “fault”!  Then the bystanders are all around you, other motorcyclists bay for their pound of flesh like rabid dogs and the biker suddenly believes he’s the hero – and we car drivers don’t stand a chance in the moral court of public opinion ☹.

What’s the solution- DRIVE A FRIGGIN’ TANK and then ask the bikers to play chicken!

Mind you, not everyone is like this- there are exceptions and I thank them for driving correctly, smartly and safely.

Oooooh… I wish I had a TANK !
