In most of Kerala the roads are narrow & congested with heavy traffic. Most of the terrain is hilly & there are large number of bridges - narrow & old. Potholes & sudden intermittent rains stall your speed. State is thickly populated along the highways & patience in driving is called for. No one here likes to wear helmets or seat belts & overloaded vehicles are common sight.
But of course these roads have greenest scenery as well!
