you would rule any traffic with your clunker junker & if you have some fancy wheels then i guess you ...

Yes, I heard that Vietnam, India and some other places are also "a little crazy" :)

But isn't it true that the general recipe is to set the official rules aside and "flow with the mob"?
I have to admit, that when I respect all the general rules on the main roads - on the smaller roads it is just impossible.

I really do not think adding more signs will help.  They will just be ignored.

When driving on roads with multiple lanes avoid the right hand lane because drivers entering that road from a secondary road or parking lot will not look to see if a car is coming and will not stop.
Try using your mirrors for driving instead of for combing your hair.
The area below you back windshield is not a storage area for pillows and stuffed animals.

I've seen one of the Top Gear shows from Vietnam, and I was impressed :) My friend spent there few months, but I had no time to visit Her and see for myself. But I'll use some opportunity to go there and compare with China.

Some people told me that they put the things that covers rear windshield ... to avoid the disturbing light.
Btw. most of them uses "All the light sources available" all day & night "to be better visible on the road".
