A primer on driving in India

In India, you drive on the left side of the road.  Most of the time.  Sometimes.  Scratch that.

In India, you drive on the left side of the road if there is enough room.

Or if nothing big is coming at you.

Or unless there is a cow of course.

Or a tractor.

Or if you need to make a right.

Or if you want to make a U-turn.

There are no rules against cutting through 2 lanes of traffic…

There are no rules against cutting through 4 lanes of traffic

A median? What for?

In India, you pretty much drive wherever you can.

    India and Saudi Arabia have something in common regarding “driving habits.” While we drive on the right side of the road here, on a 4-lane road the far right lane is just as good as the left lane to make a left turn. Defensive driving skills are necessary to stay alive in Saudi Arabia.
