Indian Roads.

Commenting on my blog post Driving Licence, Big John said –

“In the UK we old farts do not have to pass a medical or any other test. Just fill in a form on line, tick the right boxes and the authorities take your word for it that you are fit to drive for another 3 years. Un-bloody-believable !
BTW … From what I have seen of Indian drivers (on TV) I’m surprised anyone in your country has ever passed any sort of driving test … :-)”

I responded – “You can say that again. Even those with valid driving licences nowadays are unlikely to have passed a test!”

I am sure that Big John will enjoy this cartoon.

I am sorry Big John, I could not edit the American spelling.

    As I shall be 70 shortly, I’m relieved to know renewing my licence is so easy – for the time being at any rate. But I wonder how some of the lunatic drivers on the road managed to get a driving licence in the first place. I spend half my time braking to avoid some idiot who’s just nipped into my lane right in front of me.

    Somehow I doubt these percentages are unique to India.

    a LADY honked and ‘flipped me off’ yesterday!
    then she speeded up behind me and honked again.
    i’m still not sure what i did. it was clear when i turned. i made sure to check!
    i smiled and waved sweetly to her like she was an old friend.
    i think that made her madder.
    hee hee.

  4. Your roads are a lot different than the ones Andy drives on. When he’s clearing trees off the road and someone happens to drive by, they usually smile and wave at him.

    Over here a license is a thousand dollars, many years ago, who knows how high now, for 10-20 hours of driving instruction, the same of theory, and paperwork and the test. It is good for life. Those of us who want to arrive in one piece hug the right lane as the others whiz by. several years ago I almost bought the farm when an idiot in a convertable, doing 200km, lost a surfboard off the top. And here men honk if a woman drives and a man is the passenger! LOVE German drivers.

    Have a great weekend, my friend.
