There is nothing at all theoretical about the 100,000 deaths on the roads of India each year, many of them motorbike riders like those pictured above.
However the risk these people are taking is a risk the eco-warriors of the West are willing for them to take, rather than allowing them to ride in the far safer Tata-Nano. This is despite the fact it has better economy than the gas-guzzling Prius.
By the way, while 100,000 Indians die on their roads each year, this is the road toll that appears to be of more concern to the BBC.
