Hey LJ'ers:

I've watched this many times, out of shear Disbelief I think!

It's Titled "The Most Dangerous Intersection In The World". I believe it!

Is there an explanation for this Insanity? Is there a Driving School For The Blind around here somewhere?

No Brake Pedals in some of these Vehicles? Nobody seems to be making an effort to avoid a collision!

Why are they Deliberately turning into the path of oncoming vehicles?

These guys on their Motor Scooters are Nuts!

A Copycat Video said that they experience, on average 4 to 5 Deaths per Week! No problem believing that!

Go Full Screen if you really want to catch the details.

WARNING! This is Very graphic in places. Use your Discretion Please!

Link Is HERE

In case that doesn't work this should: http://youtu.be/d3CVLvFUUbc

Later All: Rick

PS: By all means, Please do Comment. Thanks.

seems like everyone has the right of way
or are to busy to worry about what might be coming at them

no lights or signs in most of these intersection either

or they don't have licenses to drive

the guy on the tractor knocked a car off the bank completely
and then ran leaving the tractor running too
which went over the bank also

glad i don't have the money to visit these places

I just don't get these drivers ,looks like they are totally oblivious to the oncoming traffic,or can not judge the speed/distance,,some of them look like they purposely go in the path of the trucks like they have a death wish.

An eye opening video for sure.

Thanks for your comments Patron and Ken. Both of you are right on the money.

"Death Wish" is almost what it looks like. Everybody thinks they have the right of way is good ….. even if it costs me my Life is Stupid.

The guy trying to turn off the main road and SLAMS into the light pole is almost Laughable. (OOPS.)

When I visited India on business a few years ago, I had to take a taxi from the hotel to the office and back every day. I've never been so scared in my life. I had to go out and buy more underwear. It really is like that, even in the cities. The reason:

1) Badly designed roads
2) Badly constructed roads
3) Vehicles of all types that should have been scraped 50 years ago.
4) Vehicles being used for purposes they were never designed for. It is not unusual to see people clinging to the outside or sitting on the roofs of lorries doing 70 mph. The whole family (husband, wife, three kids) ride on one scooter.
5) No road sense.
6) No sense of distance.
7) No respect for other road users.
etc.

India is an interesting place and the people are lovely, but I wouldn't go again for this very reason.

Thats disturbing,

They have money to put a camera up, but no money for a traffic light

I guess some people couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the directions were
written on the heel.

Amazing! You watch as somebody approaches from the side, and you just KNOW that the vehicle coming at the camera is GONNA HIT HIM!
You just have to flinch when you know it's going to happen!

Thanks for your Comments Guys. ALL are very good & Interesting!

Brit: Thanks for confirming it really is this bad! Not going back? Don't blame you one bit!

Moron: "I guess some people couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the directions were written on the heel." LMAO at that one. Have to remember it for sure!

Joe: I know what you mean. I've watched it numerous times and always have that same reaction. Especially those guys on their Motorbikes. BAZOOM! I don't think a few of them are going to see the light of day ever again.

I don't know but just seems to me this video just shows how dumb people can be not only the drivers but the road commission as well, you'd think they'd have a better traffic control system, I ride a motorcycle and there's no way… it's just common since in which clearly these folks don't have.

Thanks guys. Yea Moron & Ken. I found that "Bacon Loving" Dog pretty funny also.

I'm going way back here but the first talking animal I remember was "Francis The Talking Mule". Black and White movies. OH! "Donald O'Connor? Did I just give away my Age?

Oh well. I guess 57 isn't to bad … LIAR! LIAR! Damn! Those voices are beginning to get to Me! Now there even E-Mailing me!!

Randy: Always nice to see you again. Absolutely correct. Brit pretty well nailed it up in Pot #9. That's the way they drive all over India. Big question is …. WHY! Maybe my Signature Line is close.
