A Wild Ride

Driving in India there seems to be one rule - anything goes. If it has wheels, it can be driven. Steering wheels are on the left side of cars, but people drive on any side of the road they wish. Horns are used frequently as a way of saying "I am here!" The big rule I've observed is that the smaller vehicle is responsible for avoiding the larger vehicle when they are coming at each other head-on. It's an adventure everytime we venture out on the streets.
So that you might experience the traffic here, I shot these two videos from my seat in a bicycle rickshaw.
