Indian road - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

Chaos is the word that best describes Indian roads. A trip in a taxi can be a hair-raising experience, let alone trying to cross a road as a pedestrian. There is a system in place whereby smaller vehicles usually give way to larger vehicles, and the largest vehicles rule the road. Drivers weave all over the road, and overtake from both sides. To actually cross a road, you will have to brace yourself to walk out in front of oncoming traffic. However, do not be too concerned as drivers are used to this and will stop. The best thing to do is go with the flow and follow everyone else who is crossing the road at the same time. The roads themselves are in various states of repair. Unsealed roads, roads full of holes, and partially dug up roads are common.
