10 Types Of Taxi Drivers You Will Find In Mumbai

Mumbai is one dream city that has people coming from over the entire country to find a job, make a living and support their families. And, one common job that many take up here is driving a taxi. While they help us reach our offices on time every day, there are 10 hilarious types of taxi drivers in India.

1. The I-Am-Driving-An-Aircraft Ones

Yes, there they are who think they are literally driving an aircraft. They will race away from lane to lane and road to road, leaving you praying for your life in the backseat.

2. The I-Am-In-No-Hurry Ones

Contrary to the speeders, these are the ones who are slower than they should be. Whether it comes from age or inexperience, they will make you feel you are travelling in a bail-gadi (bullock cart).

3. The Honkers

We have these in abundance, not only in Mumbai but throughout India. It is like a disease where one honks and everyone follows. These drivers will honk, honk and honk until your ears feel deafened.

4. The Signal Breakers

And again, we have them in abundance too! These drivers don’t care if the signal has already gone red. They will still race their car unless there’s no pandu (traffic cop) standing at the junction.

5. The Overtakers

The drivers are infected by the ‘Overtaking Syndrome’. Whether the road ahead is empty or not, they will always want to overtake the car ahead. In every 10 seconds, they will peep ahead from the right to see if it is safe for them to overtake.

 

6. The Confused Ones

Oh yes! These are the ones who probably do not understand the indicators in a car or are hell confused. Either way, they will also confuse the vehicles following them by giving a right indicator and turning left.

7. The Zebra Crossing Speeders

These are the drivers who seem to be driving to kill. Where vehicles stop for people to cross at the Zebra Crossing in other countries, Mumbai has drivers who will speed up as soon as they see a Zebra Crossing. You better let them go first!

8. The Racers

They are the competitors, always in an ignited spirit. They will race with their taxi driver and auto driver mates, leaving you holding your breath.

9. The Traffic Jammers

Ever thought why there are so many traffic jams in Mumbai? Thanks to our taxi and auto drivers! There are these types of drivers who will always try to overtake from the wrong side or block the way of the traffic coming from the opposite side. Peep-peep!

10. The Lane Cutters

These are the ones who are never content driving in one lane. Because the lane you leave always gets cleared from traffic faster, agree?
