I cant tell you the number of times someone walking almost got hit by a car, car hitting a street car, car hitting a bike, car hitting another car or buggy. I expected someone to buy the farm any second.
ALL the guys wore hats. The bikes went as fast as the cars. Ladies had to walk around holding the dresses out of the dirt. Not a cop, or stop sign in sight. Too bad we didn't have color and sound.
While road deaths in many other big emerging markets have declined or stabilized in recent years, even as vehicle sales jumped, in India, fatalities are skyrocketing — up 40 percent in five years to more than 118,000 in 2008, the last figure available.
A lethal brew of poor road planning, inadequate law enforcement, a surge in trucks and cars, and a flood of untrained drivers have made India the world’s road death capital. As the country’s fast-growing economy and huge population raise its importance on the world stage, the rising toll is a reminder that the government still struggles to keep its more than a billion people safe.
