20 years of my driving comprise whole night driving, ghat sections, extremely heavy rains, no road driving, during protests, extremely interior places and non stop driving above 24 hours. Mixed with pleasant and scary experiences. Recent trip to Mumbai is of not good experience. In Shirdi we are chased by bike born miscreants, we are not at fault. En route to Bhimashankarm people are drinking liqueur at 5.30pm. I used to travel Mysore every month last trip is unpleasant one, near villages some people are standing/sitting near road staring at cars and shouting. In some Facebook posts someone throwed empty bottle on passing car at 5.30pm near Coimbatore. Someone robbed at 12AM near L&T Coimbatore bypass recently. Time changing, People are changing, no ethics, zero helpful nature in case of interstate cars, roads are changing. Share your experiences here for the benefit of forum members.

Good idea, nice thread. Everyone can share their bad /scaring experiences on a particular area/road where they are driven or travelled so that others can be prepared or take some precaution when driving those areas/route.

Fortunately, I haven't faced any such situation so far (have been driving for almost 34/35 years)[roll]

10 of India’s SCARIEST roads to drive after dark

Paranormal activities are something that keeps many of us on our toes but then there are many who do not believe in these. Well, India is known for its rich culture and heritage and in many parts of the country, paranormal activities are experienced by the locals. It even happens to motorists and road users. Which are the scariest roads to drive in India? Well, here are ten of them.

Delhi Cantonment Road
There are many stories of a lady dressed in white clothes from the vicinity. The lady apparently asks for a lift from the passerby and if someone does not stops, she starts running beside the vehicle. It is believed that the lady met with a fatal accident on this road several years ago.

East Coast Road, Chennai
There have been a few sightings of a woman in white saree with a toddler who comes in front of the vehicle from many years now.

Blue Cross Road, Chennai
The locals believe that this road is haunted and all the people who have died here come back at the night to scare others.

NH-209 through the Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary
This was a stronghold area of Veerappan, the infamous dacoit. A lot of people were killed in the area by him and the locals and villagers keep on reporting loud screams and ghost-like figures moving around in the area. It is not known if it is actually paranormal or activities are done by the troops of Veerappan.

Kashedi Ghat
As per the locals, a person suddenly appears in front of the vehicle asking them to stop. People who do not stop or run over the ghost are said to meet with fatal accidents.

Jamshedpur-Rachi NH33
The Naxalite activities have made this route extremely dangerous, especially at night. The Naxals stop people travelling on this stretch at night and loot them. There are also reports of ghost-like figures in the stretch. This is why there are a lot of temples located on the road and many visit the temples before travelling on the highway.

Beasant Avenue, Chennai
According to the people who live around in the city, a playful ghost hits and slaps the passerby randomly. Also, an unnatural force throws around people on the road.

Kasara Ghat, Mumbai-Nashik
The stretch has a lot of tree cover and people have reported that they have seen human figures sitting on the top of the trees. Many have also reported that they have seen a headless lady in white clothes on the tree.

Marve & Madh Road, Mumbai
Many believe that this road is haunted by a bride who was brutally murdered and dumped in the mangrove forest on the night of her wedding. The locals believe that the lady comes back and stands in front of the vehicles. Because of this, many accidents have happened where people have swerved to avoid her.

Igorchem Road, Goa
This road is located behind the church of ‘Our Girl of Snows’. Unlike all other places that are said to be paranormal at night, this road stays haunted even during the days. The area is said to be haunted by wandering lost souls.
