I rented and rode a scooter in Bali, and thought that was bad, but it wasn't nearly as crazy as this!

Crazy Traffic

I had several opportunities to visit Vietnam in the past 10 years. From these pictures, India is mild.

There is a big difference on splitting lanes on a 200lb bike vs a 900 wing

Lol...why even beep, no one pays any attention to it. :shrug:
In India they beep incessantly just to say "Hey, I'm here."
It's not quite the same as in the US where it's "Hey, butthead, get outta my way!".

This is actually a good example of a society with no traffic enforcement (meaning little or no traffic tickets).

Some may complain about traffic laws and enforcement, but the alternative is chaos.

India has A LOT of traffic fatalities....

I have heard from some immigrants, that India is trying to start a traffic safety program, make laws, and start a traffic enforcement program; but it will take a lot of effort to re-train the mind set of these drivers.
