the ‘nam

25 06 2008

I’ve encountered many-a-clip of amazingly bad traffic from around the globe, but based on what I’ve seen so far, Vietnam is the clear world champion of automotive anarchy.

If you can get past your stuffy western sensibilities like “turn signals” and “right of way,” the chaos of these intersections becomes almost beautiful, with ebbs and flows like the tides and a loose, free-form sort of swarm-behavior logic. Don’t fight it, man. Just go with the flow.
