1st time youre there you're like OMG they are gonna run my ass over. 2nd day you're used to it.

Yeah you have more of a chance of getting run over if you don't walk confidently and predictably on the street. The cars will avoid you so it makes crossing the street relatively easy.

Pedestrians are totally fvxored if something goes wrong.

There were cars passing with a foot of a pedestrian on both sides without caution! GEEZ.

I can't see that working well here in the US. Older drivers are 100% fixated on being told what to do by signals. There are a set of rules that you follow that get you to your destination. We thrive on not having to pay any real attention to our driving. If forced to pay attention constantly, I could see a lot of problems with the >45 crowd.

For those saying that this is an awesome system, keep in mind that India has a really high accident rate:

The country already has one of the world's highest accident rates, with more than 80,000 traffic-related deaths a year. Few police officers patrol its roads, ensuring that pretty much anything goes.

The US has about 40000/year but the number of miles logged in the US is way higher than in India.

People often drive inter-state (or rather, get driven, because we have busses that do that) in India.

Anyways, my point is: how many accidents do European countries have? Where did you find these numbers? I can't find them in the article, but maybe I wasn't reading carefully enough (skim reading rather).
