Driving in India: traffic and obstacles

Driving in India

They say that an Indian driver can drive anywhere in the world and, on the other hand, a foreigner can hardly drive in India. Without reaching such extremes, the truth is that Indian traffic must be accustomed . Apart from driving on the left like the British ex-colonies on Indian routes , even on the most extensive and modern highways, the invasion of the lanes by animals or people who carry out pastoral activities or transport between small towns is frequent .

Counter-steering vehicles are not uncommon. Driving in India without danger requires a large dose of patience, attention and reflexes , as well as understanding a series of auditory and luminous signals different from those used in most countries. The turn signals have been replaced by a horn system that may seem chaotic, but has a clear meaning for local drivers. The lack of respect for the overtaking lines and the separation between lanes means that driving in India requires more than concentration.
