4. Yes people, the rear view mirror in the car is there for a purpose. It is for your own safety, and what a nice way to get its purpose across to people, by drawing on lessons of life itself.

5. We may hate them for challan or try to defame their ilk by bribing our way out of a sticky situation, but this post makes you realise that we owe them for the thankless job they do come hail, rain or sunshine. And in today’s world the perils of the job include braving the ominous smog.

6. And we leave you with this last one, a video that underlines the thought pay attention to the job at hand as distraction can have disasterous consequences and on the road it can be fatal. Leave socialising for another time and place, when on the road keep your hands on the wheels, eyes on the road and focus on driving only.
