Worlds deadliest roads

Recommended Posts

I was watching IRT:Worlds deadliest roads season one. They take ice road truckers and have them drive these insane roads in Inida. Now I am from New York City and am used to crazy driving including driving an Ambulance through NYC traffic but damn those Indian roads and drivers are insane.

Can some of our Indian members confirm that is really that bad? I dont like to stereotype anyone or anyplace but if all Indians drive like that I wonder how anyone survives a trip to the grocery store. I was thinking of traveling to India next year (mainly to !slap yoyo in real life :D ) now I'm not so sure.

I believe one of the deadliest roads in the world is in Brazil, and we have some Brazilian members, maybe they can have some input too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_traffic-related_death_rate

 

United states: 12.3 deaths per 100.000 inhabitants.

India: 16.9 deaths per 100.000 inhabitants.

 

However, if we list deaths per 100.000 cars, we get 15 and 316 respectively. From this we may derive that if there are a lot more cars per inhabitant in the US than in India. Furthermore, we see that you won't die more often in India from car crashes than in the US, unless you are in a region with more cars than the average.

 

So, we can conclude derive that if you stay away from cars, you won't get hit by a car. But I think that's stating the obvious...

Wow, that video is crazy. I take the Brazil thing back; it is the road that is dangerous and not the drivers.

 

Panini could you imagine walking on that road on a really hot day and getting smashed in between two hot cars? That hot metal smashing you flat and cooking your...wait, there is that delicious smell again, I wonder where it is coming from.

The video was hilarious. I couldn't imagine driving there. But then I couldn't imagine walking or biking there.
