Explored: Hanoi Traffic Vietnam

Heres a video of my first time crossing a major road in Hano as you can see zebra crossing means nothingi:


Crossing the street in Hanoi is a fairly precarious affair. There are very few pedestrian crossings but a hell of a lot of scooters and cars.. So it generally involves stepping onto the road. Walking with your eyes shut and hoping no one hits you.. The trick is you never stop walking otherwise it makes it difficult for the oncoming drivers to predict where you are going.. It actually becomes fun after a while.. After spending a couple of weeks in Hanoi it became very easy to spot the fresh meat because you see them shitting themselves as they cross.
