Raymond Chen’s blog pointed me to this video of driving in India. This takes “uncontrolled intersection” to a whole different level than I had considered possible. I didn’t watch the entire thing, but my favorite part was around second 36. If you look in the lower right, you can see a car and a motorcycle bracket a pedestrian, who seems totally unsurprised. Personally, I think I might be a little freaked out by that.
Now picture a typical American driver rolling in with a Lincoln Navigator, talking on a cellphone, drinking a latte running over pedicabs, threatening lawsuits... despite that, I think I still like our style of driving better.
