Travelling in North India is quite interesting and entertaining specially in Punjab and what makes travel more interesting are the trucks.

North Indian truck drivers imprint crazy things truck backs. Some rhyme, some are heart touching, some inspirational, some prankish – but more often funny.

Note that many of these slogans are obviously influenced by the rich Punjabi culture.

Why not check out some really amazing Punjabi truck back slogans and laugh the Monday blues away:

For those who go on honking. It means – My vehicle is already annoying me and now it’s you.

Haha this is funny … It goes like – Look, but don’t trouble.
