Car se aane waale aksar der se aate hain.

Salim-Javed again. I must curb this instinct, else people are going to think I am their PR agent. Not that they need any PR. This is from Deewar again. Ravi Vs Vijay. The famous “mere paas maa hai” scene. Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) reaches a bit late and the moment he reaches, asks Ravi (Shashi Kapoor)

मुझे आने मे देर तो नही हुयी
Mujhe aane me der to nahee huyee

It was meant to be a rhetorical question, and any other brother posing as a police inspector would have let it pass. But not Ravi. Armed with the amazing missile called Salim-Javed he is highly unlikely to let it pass. So what does he do? He turns around and tells Vijay

कोई बात नही – कार से आने वाले अक्सर देर से आते हैं
Koee baat nahee – car se aane vaale aksar der se aate hain

I have often seen that the people who are the closest to a meeting venue, often reach last. The people who travel 45 km to reach the venue, often reach well in time. Similarly, the people who travel by public transport reach on time and those who travel in a chauffeur driven car reach late. So whenever you are in a situation where you find a better equipped (in terms of transport, distance etc) person reaching late, you could use this line.

Alternatively, if you have a car of your own, and reach late, use this line if someone points out that you are late

कार से आने वाले अक्सर देर से आते हैं
