Being on the road seems like a big part of life in India and if I had to drive on those roads, I would not survive! Lines on the road are barely suggestions to drivers and driving into oncoming traffic to pass others is quite normal. After awhile, I just learned to look out the window and not straight ahead. Besides, there was lots to see.
Tuk-tuk's, entire families on scooters, cows. And everyone is encouraged to honk.
