Photos of traffic accidents on the roads of India and Nepal.­

Most accidents involve overturned trucks.­

Approximately 140,000 people die from traffic accidents every year in India.­

The swastika (卐) is a Hindu symbol of auspiciousness or good luck, and it is painted on almost all trucks in India, as a good luck charm to protect against traffic accidents.­ Its efficiency is not scientifically proven :)
