Kochi (Cochin) Driving Tips #6

Never trust your vehicle's turn indicator.

It's not because it is not working but because other drivers Kochi tends to ignore it.

While taking a left turn to park my vehicle in our office parking area, I properly used left indicator. This is strictly no overtake zone. The biker behind me simply ignored the indicator and overtook from left side.

The good thing is that I know the habits of people here so I was careful. A narrow escape.

Watch your back.

If you are driving on kochi roads and you see a vehicle coming fast behind you, slow down you vehicle. The guy may overtake from right, take a sharp left cut in front of you and apply breaks just at the face of your car. This is very common with bikers.
