Rules Of The Road When Travel In Vietnam

Rules of​ the​ road when travel in​ Vietnam
1 .​
Obey the​ road rules if​ you​ can work out what they are
2 .​
Maintain direction no matter what
3 .​
Remember the​ shortest distance between two points is​ a​ straight line.
4 .​
Expect the​ totally unexpected
5 .​
Do not be surprised when a​ 10-metre boat slung on​ a​ pole between two motor cycles crosses the​ expressway in​ front of​ you.
6 .​
Do not be surprised if,​ despite bird flu,​ a​ flock of​ ducks suddenly fills the​ entire the​ highway
7 .​
Do not be surprised if​ a​ laden bus (or anything else) comes at​ you​ on​ the​ wrong side of​ an​ expressway.
8 .​
Red traffic lights often seem to​ be only advisory
9 .​
Do not stop immediately on​ a​ red light or​ someone behind will run into you
10 .​
The man with the​ two full-size refrigerators on​ the​ back of​ his mortor cycle is​ NOT going to​ stop at​ a​ red light.
11 .​
Traffic roundabouts are only a​ slight inconvenience to​ traffic
12 .​
It’s quite reasonable to​ go the​ wrong way up one-way streets
13 .​
When doing something totally stupid like going the​ wrong way up a​ one-way street or​ into oncoming traffic,​ blast away on​ your horn
14 .​
Ride with a​ finger pressed almost continuously on​ the​ horn since this is​ easier than obeying road rules
15 .​
Just because you​ have four on​ the​ bike and are going the​ wrong way up a​ one-way street does not mean the​ police will stop you
16 .​
Lights are not used during the​ day because they use too much electricity
17 .​
Traffic lights can often be hidden behind trees or​ signs
18 .​
No left turn signs are usually inconspicuous and can be moved from time to​ time
19 .​
Just because you​ are turning left and on​ the​ left side of​ the​ carriageway doesn’t mean someone will not pass you​ on​ the​ left to​ go straight ahead
20 .​
Just because someone is​ on​ the​ left side of​ the​ carriage-way in​ front of​ you​ does not mean they do not intend to​ suddenly turn right
21 .​
Ditto if​ they are on​ the​ right side of​ the​ road
22 .​
Just because there is​ a​ wall of​ motorbikes spanning both sides of​ the​ road facing you,​ don’t think you​ are necessarily heading into a​ one-way street.
23 .​
Just because there is​ a​ car bearing down on​ you​ on​ your side of​ the​ road doesn’t mean he’s on​ the​ correct side of​ the​ road
24 .​
Crash helmets are for putting in​ the​ basket at​ the​ front of​ your bike
25 .​
Remember most car drivers don’t own a​ cars – they own motorbikes and drive accordingly
26 .​
Double ditto for bus drivers
27 .​
If you​ are going to​ be hit by a​ car make sure it​ is​ not a​ government car
28 .​
Avoid foreigners since most are riding Russian bikes and need to​ keep going or​ the​ engine cuts out
29 .​
Avoid any drivers wearing a​ green hat as​ they are probably xe om drivers and thus feel they are right of​ way
