If you haven't experienced the streets of India, you're in for a real adventure! The theme of the road is "Good Brakes, Good Horn, Good Luck!" And belief me, you need ALL of that!! We were smart enough to hire a driver, but found out quickly that lanes mean nothing in India. The government is trying to get people to drive within lanes with billboards sporting signs such as "Lane Driving is Sane Driving". Sharing the road with camels and elephants and oxen and all the cows is quite a jolting experience. Not to mention tractors, bicycles, motorcycles, and horsedrawn carts. Horns honk incessantly. Tires squeal. Motorcycles and buses run so closely together that many accidents find motorcycles underneath those buses. (Incidentally, men are required to wear helmets. Women are not.) I've read that the accident mortality rate in India is one of the highest in the world. I believe it. We had so many near misses in our 14 hour roundtrip between Delhi and Agra that it was a relief to finally board a plane to get out of India. Too much intensity even for me.
