par for the course in India. BTW the video is in fast forward, the reason more people don't die of traffic accidents there is because within cities vehicles rarely go over 15mph.

No wonder some of the other videos appeared to be going betwen 40-60 km/h (reality, probably 12-18).

This is very much the case in China also. I leave the driving to the pros Taxi drivers. I do find the driving etiquette to be quite interesting there. I hold a class A Commercial Drivers License, and the driving style there just makes me cringe!

Ah this brings back memories of Pakistan. All I can say is you could not pay me to drive there and hubby was like why are you not wanting to drive? :lol:

Once he came to USA he understood.

Driving in India...yikes. The first couple days I was there was very nerve wracking while we were being driven around. Then after a few days, it almost got to be normal feeling. :blink::D But the honking noise outside never felt normal and would wake me up everyday by 6:30am.

Now I sometimes wish we could just honk at ppl all the time here when the old people drive so slow(that's Florida for you :wacko: !!) or someone won't get out of the fast lane going slow. But I'm afraid ppl will shoot me if I honk alot here!! :P

What's so dangerous about that intersection? Try driving in NYC :lol:

You haven't yet had to share the road with 4-legged animals (in addition to the 2-legged ones). :lol:

The driving in Pakistan/Afghanistan is crazy like that. You drive in whatever lane you want. I loved when they would scare the heck out of me by waiting until the very last itty bitty second to change lanes before hitting the object in front of them. But after a while it was all normal to me just like Stina said.
