For a foreign traveller, traffic on Indian roads can be more than overwhelming, especially if they’ve arrived from a country where drivers follow the system of lanes, traffic rules, and not using the horn. Those who survive the ordeal probably think it necessary to leave a few tips for others following in their footsteps.

But what their video, posted on the travel blog Follow the White Mog, really shows is the mad confusion of vehicles, pedestrians and even cows on the streets – something we take for granted when driving every day.
