Riding hailing apps like Ola and Uber are definitely a very comfortable way to commute in city but then they create other big problems as well.
1) Drivers don’t follow traffic signals and in smaller traffic junction they violate and jump signals almost 100% of the time.
2) Parking on roads, while waiting for their customers, driver will park on road and they are the biggest reasons of traffic jams. I have seen in Indiranagar 100 feet road, almost the entire stretch is blocked by parking. This road sees huge flow of vehicles and this parking caused lots of nuisance.
3) The pleasure of driving is lost because of the unruly drivers. I am sure no one enjoys driving on Bangalore road, you don’t enjoy driving at all. It seems the roads are completely taken over by these drivers.
Something should be done about this, I feel they are causing bigger problems compared to the smaller benefits they offer.
These ride hailing companies must instruct their drivers to follow traffic discipline.
