Old habits maybe? This menace is everywhere. Here in Ekm, MG Road and Banerji road are the worst. Footpaths are well laid out after the metro works but still people NEED to walk on the road. Maybe this was once a necessity when footpaths were un-usable due to vendors/beggars/trash/broken slabs etc. but not anymore (well largely). Its a nightmare on Banerji road as the lanes are already narrow, buses/trucks drive in the middle and there are usually cars parked on the left lane. Only place where people actually use the footpath is the Infopark e-way, maybe coz the pedestrians are scared of being run over as people drive at insane speeds there (relatively speaking).

It is frustrating that most pedestrians here do not walk on the right side. If they walk on the road facing oncoming vehicles it is relatively less dangerous.

Medical College_Ulloor Road during the evening is even worse. Not only do they walk outside the pavement but also shift to the middle of the road without looking for vehicles. I drive really slow in sections anticipating such actions and have saved numerous fender-benders.
