Super Crazy Saigon Traffic :-)

I got some great shots of the what the traffic is like in Saigon now. Since last summer, it the roads have gotten very congested due to the increase of both cars and motorbikes. Even the police seem to have problems directing traffic anymore. For once, I saw people arguing with the police which is not the norm here.

    Traffic looks bad, but it was already that bad 3 years ago, when I was there visiting. The new helmet law is going to be implemented this December 15th, I wonder if anyone is going to comply. I would hate having to wear a stinking helmet everytime I go out…it’ll ruin my hair-do…haha

    I was in Saigon this past April and the traffic in the morning and after work hour was horrible. Everytime the motorbike came to a stop at the lights or stuck in traffic, I felt as if other motobikes would hit my legs…it was scary.

    saigon traffic looks quite bad when unlooking from afar. but i find that when you’re actually riding a motorbike amongst the craziness yourself, its really not that bad as it looks…

    but hey thats just me!

  • @mike: Yeah, it is not so bad when you ride in it. Find a space and take it. Yesterday a bicycle nearly knocked down my motorbike when he struck my right handle bar 🙂 The joys of driving in Saigon 🙂

    @Thong: I heard Hanoi traffic was horrible but when I was there, I thought it was light and, well, organized. 🙂
