If they choose o drive at the safe speed they get ample of time to make any decision!!!
@alok, agreed that there are more rash bikers in town, but also consider the fact that there are not as many cars on road as bikes do! So, when the number of cars increases, obviously rash driving is also likely to go up!
On the other hand, on my daily stint to office, a 15km drive in medium traffic, where I could easily do 70+, I travel only at 55kmph.
Not all bikers are rash. Also, not all car drivers are very obidient! when people drive cars, they rarely respect bikers in the road. I have felt this manytimes myself.
Honking continuously on my back (When a bike doesn't have way to go, what is a car going to do just by honking continuously?

All the car owners think of the bikers to be irrelevant and useless, and go to any extent to bully and to remove bikers from the way.
Its high time we bikers got our due respect, and car owners accepted their responsibilities and a part of the blame.
Bikers do get enough respect when they also behave well. It doesn't mean that a biker can go past all nook and corners passing through 2 cars in smallest gaps possible just because he has a bike. I myself have done that on occasions but these things irritate a carwala to a great extent. Obvious, he doesnt want a scratch/dent on his car for our foolishness.
Put together, it is the biker's responsibility to play safe on the roads, because at the end of the day, it is the biker who is going to get hurt if the worst should happen!
Best to stick to the left lane, stick to a constant speed and look out the road carefully as you proceed. Speeding is to be done on highways/tracks where it is meant!
