Dear 100CC/150CC Bicyclists;

1. There is something called High-Beam in your motorbikes and it is meant to be used only on a highway. Not on city roads. Of course, you cannot go out on the highway with that bicycle of yours to understand the difference. But, please do listen when someone tells you. Do not use high beam inside city, coz if I switch on my high beam and my supplementary head lights, you are sure to crash onto the vehicle in front of you.

2. There are two appendages to the handle-bars called rear-view mirrors. Please use them. Do not leave them in some awkward angles. They are meant to let you know what is coming behind you and what is coming aside you (Yes, rear-view mirrors will eliminate blind spots provided you have an occasional glance on it). Please do not dart across the road and most importantly, dart across in front of my Royal Enfield. I can guarantee you that when you fall, since it is your momentum that is high, you will suffer the maximum damage. If you are not convinced, please ask the Hero Honda Splendour bi-cyclist, who crashed onto me, fell down and hurt himself quite badly today, while all that I had was a momentary imbalance. Not even a scratch. Zilch. Nada.

    You drive a Bullet ? That's smart thinking. Yes, two-wheeler traffic in India is horrible and mostly due to the behaviour of the riders you mentioned.

    Unless a fine is strictly imposed, high beam problem will remain.

    Take care and drive safe.
