Having the opportunity to spend a week in Bangalore and Hyderabad India I took the opportunity to get some photos of the everyday life on the streets of the cities.
It should be noted that while it is very different from North America and Europe in terms of driving/walking ‘protocol’, it seems to work for India. I saw amazingly few dented cars despite the constant tight traffic.
Why take the walkway when you can dodge traffic.
Home Depot was apparently out of trucks.
The random high rise cow.
In 120km of riding around the city I saw 1 traffic light, which can explain some conflicts at the intersections.
Hang on buddy.
The no horn sign is easily the most ignored sign in all of India.
What is the record for people on a scooter, why 4. Although the 3 on the other scooter is a close second. It should be noted that they have a helmet law for drivers – but not apparently for children or adult passengers.
Drive thru fruit stands.
I was amazed at the side saddle riding balance.
