This shot was taken from a traffic island on the edge of a 7-way collision of roads in Ho Chi Minh City. The only way traffic knows how to cross an intersection like this, is to throw caution to the exhaust pipe and plunge straight into it and narrowly avoid whatever presents itself in front and behind. Scary isn’t it.
– Some fast facts –
1. There are 10 million motorbikes in Vietnam and counting…
2. Mostly Japanese; Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki.
3. Helmets are pathetic and are only required legally on highways.
4. It’s not uncommon to see mum & dad and two kids or more on 1 bike.
