This has a table of absolute numbers and drop %. Would want to know how much of this drop is attributable to the approximately 5-month ban on sale of alcohol near national and state highways (April to August in most states). Would have been nice to see month-wise breakup.

There is the usual TOI touch too: "... followed by Odisha where such deaths have gone up by 50% - from 3,306 in 2016 to 3,495 this year". In what branch of mathematics does the rise from 3306 to 3495 become 50%?

Spotted this in Marathahalli outer ring road one week back. Even the right fender area and engine looked heavily damaged. Looked like a self drive car. The car was dirty probably by parking on roadside for long duration.

Seeing the pictures it is quite nasty, glad you/family came out unscathed.
Was the tractor on the left lane or took a sharp turn from the leftmost lane?
What speed were you at?

I never drive on the right lane due to sudden poking of bikes and pedestrians from the median.

At first glance it looks like rest of the container is missing like it is photoshopped. On looking at it carefully, realized it's jack knifed.

People have such a carefree attitude and total lack of common Sense, in this case the two wheeler rider at highest risk and so are other road users.

He has just passed under the hanging truck, what if something could fall of that vehicle.
He has no helmet.
He has just passed riding over the oily patch.

Pity them, thanks yo our licensing system, law and enforcement.
Bless these people with some common sense.

Damn ! this very car had helped me celebrate my B'day last year.

No wonder self-drive companies have stopped giving high-end vehicles in their portfolio because of such abuse by customers.

Saw this while picking up a Zoomcar in Delhi :-

It's a really sorry sight and just annoying how we only equate high price vehicle with either speed or space. Personally I have noticed that we do not value craftsmanship, fit and finish, comfort, build quality, safety, durability, noise levels, handling, and a bunch of other things as part of a vehicle's experience.

People do value and appreciate all the aspects you mentioned, the real problem is that they(most people) don't value other's property if they are given access to the same, use them carelessly and as abusively as possible.

No offense here. As I see it.
It is the upbringing which develops this careless and carefree attitude.
If only good a few good habits could have been taught in early childhood we would have much less pollution this includes water, garbage pile ups, damaging public property and finally road manners.

It amazes me to see some of my IT colleagues how well they behave when they are in UK and the moment they land back home its a different person.

Ehh split personality.

Ohh yes and I forgot to mention - Respect for elders and the aged, especially on the bus.

It isnt. You are looking at the container as it would look when you look at it from behind the cabin when the cabin and the trailer are in a single line. So the entire container is hidden from your view and you see only one face of it. Isn't photo shopped as per me

They called a lawyer relative and I left.
I think RTO rules stipulate that in case of rear ending, the tailing vehicle is at fault. You may want to check this.
Of course, there is no way that anyone can convince the other person in an accident. If you rear end anyone it is your fault and if anyone rear ends you, it is also your fault. People in numbers always win.

Lack of relevant consequences, for one. No fines or social consequences for bad behaviour or breaking traffic rules.
And lack of respect for others here is the other. I am sure these people respect foreigners more than they would fellow Indians.
