2nd DAY - INDIA (OLD DELHI) - TRAFFIC

The frequency of traffic collisions in India is among the highest in the world, and it's no wonder when you see the way people drive. With large numbers of cars, cycles and motorbikes, not to mention no obvious lane division, the scene is chaotic at best.. In New Delhi, the capital of India, the frequency of traffic collisions is 40 times higher than the rate in London. For decades, the chaotic melée on India's roads has been held up as a point of pride by locals who argued that, though unnerving, the free-for-all worked in a way that foreign practices such as staying in your lane or using your mirrors would not.

marilynx I guess the populace know best!
I would find it terrifying.
A friend of ours took a taxi somewhere in India - the taxi driver knocked over and killed a man on a bicycle - the first thing that happened was the bicycle disappeared within minutes, stolen by a bystander.
They continued on their journey as if nothing had happened!
Your images are frightening, but excellent.

SADHYA I think the crash helmet must be a new addition. Does that mean that everyone (husband - the driver, his wife, two children and a goat) all have to wear helmets or just the driver?
Life in India is never boring.
Loving your pictures Antonio.
