There is something empowering about our traffic, as it grants us the superpowers or at least makes us the shadows of superheroes; this is something that happens almost every time we go out to face the dangerous warlords who drive on the streets. Some of them truly believe that the road belongs to their fathers and the rest of them just come with a claim for the same. We need superpowers to make sure that we survive and we need to be “the one”. Here are a few examples.
The Vipers that Spit: This happens when you ride your two-wheeler too close to a bus, as there will be vipers inside the four-wheeled monster which are always trying to spit the venom out so as to prove their worth to the Legion of the Vipers, and at the same time, get rid of the excess venom that is stored in their hearts. At that moment, we have to bring out the Neo in us, evading the bullets which are these shots of venom. Lets make Keanu Reeves proud with this ability. Trust me, there are so many types of spit, and you don’t need to even come close to some of them.
The Reckless Hydra: The private buses of this part of the world are the Lernaean Hydra and their siblings, as they are part of a never-ending group of heads which has one coming up at the place of the other. We see one bus doing the dangerous driving and as we hope that we can finally breath, there is another one following us, and this is a procedure which never ends. To get rid of the monster, we need to be Hercules, extremely agile and strong, thus taking our vehicle away from the monster and hope that another one doesn’t come in.
New Generation Manticore: Then there are the new generation kids, thinking that their motor-bikes are bullet trains and going through small gaps between the vehicles at high speeds without helmets. These are the Manticores whose tails are incredibly venomous as they are injurious to everything around them, always causing accidents which usually leads to injuries or even death to the others as well as themselves. To save yourself here, you need to see the future like Alice Cullen, as they are unpredictable and extremely dangerous.
Three-legged Nemean Lion: We are not that big as the buses, but are still the kings of this concrete forest, says the auto rickshaws as they moves around changing lanes as they please, and turning without using the indicators. But can we blame them? May be they are yet to invent the indicators. May be lions don’t need indicators. They also have such powerful fur that anything we say will have absolutely no effect on them, as they are to do the same thing again and again. Here, you need to Jean Grey and read their minds so as to avoid accidents.
Collossus of Roads: We just can’t ignore the most powerful villains on the road, the tipper trucks who are unproclaimed rulers of the roads. Despite their huge size, they are incredibly agile and tries to be even faster than they can. Appearing our of nowhere, it is not easy to be safe from them as they are responsible for too many accident. As it is created from powerful and indestructible material, the only escape is to borrow the speed power from Flash and give a passage for them as soon as possible – any direct contact would be highly injurious to the health of any vehicle.
The Careless Gorgon: They are the bigger cars, those which can afford to drive carelessly as they are fast, huge and costly – with their sharp fangs and the hair made of venomous snakes, they rain upon the common in high speeds and often with a rich new generation kid on the driving seat. Among the cars which chooses not to stop at a red signal, there is rarely a small car involved. Why? Because bigger cars are the gorgons and with Medusa dead, they are immortals. The route to escape is the x-ray vision which has to be taken from Superman, and identify them from a distance, making sure that they are gone for our own safety.
