Traffic Tips (8)

Bevare of the mad drivers & loud horns!!!

Well, travelling trought Delhi traffic is experiance!
It seems everything which has weels will find it's way on Delhi streets!
Sitting in the front passanger seat in a taxi is ceternly experiance, as the moment my taxi driver pull out of the IGI Airport he put his finer on the horn and he did not stop till we reached our hotel!!!
Interesting thing is that majority of cars (old) do not have side mirorrs and pressing on the horn is whide spread practice.
Another interesting thing is that all of the lorries, tuk-tucks,vans and some of the old taxis have sign painted on the cak which reads:

Leathal traffic of Delhi

The street crossings really are a slaughter house here, not easy to get over the busy Delhi streets. I had crossed one of those 6-laned city roads (around India Gate), when I suddenly heard a loud break-noise of the blocked car tires, while turning around from a distance of maybe 100m I heard a loud crash - when I finally saw what was going on, there was a man flying over the streets, because of the car hit. He got up in his shock for one second, collapsing immediately again on the street asphalt. The driver just drew him on the side of the street, where people looked for the badly hurt person - just to go back into his car and carrying on with his ride as if nothing had that really left a bad taste in my mouth, looking twice before doing any movement in the Delhi traffic.

Animals on the Road

When travelling anywhere in India, be amazed to see the wildlife.....IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. No kidding! On our roadtrip around the 'golden triangle' route, we passed horses, cows, camels, elephants, and pigs walking side by side our car along the busy streets or dozing off in the middle of a high speed highway.

Be ware of drivers....

Be ware of drivers. We have poor road sense and do not often respect pedestrians rights. Zebra crossings are just some decorative marks on the road. they also provide employment to those who painted them.
However when on cross roads follow lights and those are respected 90% of the time even by rashest of drivers.
At some places there are sub ways. Safest.

Considering 6 people a day are...

Considering 6 people a day are killed on the roads in Delhi... be warned... crossing road can put your life at risk! Before I went to India I used to have a real fear of crossing roads... some how in India it wasn't that bad, possably because cars, busses, people, bicycles, rickshaws, cows and scooters all blend into one mass of moving traffic. So basically - look in every dirrection before crossing the road, and don't think you can 'wait for a gap' before you cross. You just have to kind of take it a few steps at a time. Good Luck!
This picture was a quiet moment.

Pay attention when it comes to paying in cash after a ride in a rickshaw, as the notes - particularly the smaller ones - are often very dirty and difficult to recognize and also, sometimes the drivers play the trick of tampering with the note you've given (e.g. quickly and unnoticably exchanging your hundred-rupie note to a ten and demanding more).

As well as the usual problems...

As well as the usual problems of travelling in India and the Subcontinent, you will also experience incredible levels of smog, as Delhi has virtually no organized public transport system and a fair amount of industry. This smog is exascerbated by Delhi's geography and climate, as it is built on a large flat plain that can be totally devoid of any hint of a breeze. Weather also tends to be more extreme in Delhi, especially in summer where temperatures can be in excess of 40 degrees celcius for days on end.
