The Sergeant was fascinated with Vietnam's scooter culture. He took many pictures of two-wheeled vehicles old and new hauling a variety of goods. But what amazed me was the lack of safety precautions.
There appeared to be no limit on the number of passengers. Helmets seemed to be required only for adults.

And most of the helmets were simply plastic ballcaps. Not of much use in an accident.
Cellphone use while driving was also common. As was driving on the sidewalks or going the wrong way down one-way streets.

We did see a few accidents, but in most cases no one was driving very quickly so the damage didn't seem too serious.

I just worry about all those little kids and their precious noggins.
