Traffic

Bumper to bumper. That’s basically what driving in Bangalore is, unless it’s early morning or late night. In fact, the traffic combined with red lights that last up to 5 minutes, means most drivers — cars, trucks, motorcycles, autorickshaws — just turn off their motors altogether at a light. Many signals have a countdown clock and when it gets to 10 and continues counting down, there’s a collective restarting of engines as everyone prepares to inch forward again.
