errr... not entirely correct. It depends on the circumstances. If driver saw the pedestrian and still hit him, it is the drivers fault. If the pedestrian is jaywalking on a busy street in the middle of night, then there wont be any charges. Last week a jaywalker got killed and the polcie didn't arrest the driver.
Anyway, seems that the Indian law applies to vehicles and not just pedestrians. So if a bus hits a bike driving in wrong direction, it is still the bus drivers fault.
Some people who have left the shores actually feel that everything about this country is wrong, i just cannot understand this. Have they actually lived here before they went to the developed countries ? Once they start driving fancy cars & experience the 'freedom', they just forget where they came from. I am absolutely confused. welcome to India. We still love OUR freedom.
I am assuming that the comment was directed and me and I must say I am amused. May I please direct you to the International vs Indian cars thread? Not everything is wrong with the country but certainly not everything is right. Just like one is supposed the appreciate the good, one is also supposed to criticize the bad. That is the only way a country can progress.
