  • Road Accidents and Police Assistance in India

    #1 Posted : Saturday, August 19, 2017 5:51:25 AM

     

    Does anyone have an opinion on how helpful the police in India are in the event of road accidents and such? I am pondering options other than Cambodia where I am now. I was hit by a car as I was trying to walk across the road in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I politely suggested I wanted police assistance but the driver got in her car and drove off leaving me at the side of the road, bruised, concussed and with blood dripping down my face from a head wound. I went to a police station nearby and an attendant took me back purportedly to confirm the location of the incident. When I got off the back of his motorcycle he peculiarly abruptly broke off talking with me and drove off leaving me there. Are things similar in India? Are the police in India generally corrupt, negligent or honest in their dealings with foreigners?

    Not shaking my head at all! Often these threads get a bit confusing! Bottom line is that we loved our experience in Japan, and you should definitely explore options for a tour!

As a child I came across a book in my mother’s bookcase that she had brought with her from England called “How Much Do You Know?” It was an old, tattered volume that she must have had since she was a child. It was a little treasure chest of questions and answers about all sorts of fascinating facts. It was there that I first encou...

My wife returned home the other day with a handful of packages, breaking into conversation as she came through the doorway. “I stopped at that store we don’t like,” she told me. I knew what she meant. The little convenience store a block from our home had been our go-to place for a generation. We saw it pass from father to son. We...
