There are so many risk factors in driving in the night. Lot of lorries(similar to half the size of so called 18 wheelers). They should ban slow 2 wheelers & tractors that go 20km/hour from the national highways.
We had a driver, i almost died about 50 times in those 2 drives. [ October 19, 2006: Message edited by: Kishore Dandu ]
Oh don't get me started on this! If you are not used to Indian traffic, but are bold and a bit reckless, you might be able to get from A to B during the day time on Indian roads, but night time driving is just suicide!!
I tried it a few times and not a single person out there seems to know or care to use low beam! The larger trucks with their dozens of lights just drive on leaving everyone else almost blind. I was told the technique is to stick right behind a larger vehicle so that you wouldn't be blinded by the oncoming traffic. Well, I gave up when someone pulled right in front me causing me to severe and scrape the dividers; they still made contact and pulled a side panel of my car! Pardon my French but its f*cking lunacy!!
