It's not a lottery at all, it`s how you cross the street. It`s great - you just pick a moment, and then cross at a consistent pace. People will ride around you. Just watch out for cars or trucks, since they can`t move like the bikes. If you`re not very visible, you raise your hand high and shake it a little - I saw a short old lady do this to cross a busy road.

The key is to keep a consistent, predictable pace. Change your pace and you`ll annoy people. The people I was with in Hanoi didn`t `get it`, so they`d prefer to wait for me to cross a street, then cross in my `traffic shadow` :)

Not much different than Naples in the 80's. More "tiny euro cars" than scooters, but same concept.

I suppose if you live someplace with no winter and a median income of less than $2000 a year, a scooter beats riding the bus.

I've been reading up on the place in the last few days with a view to going living there and most blogs or sites had mentioned crossing the road was a bit of a lottery but this is the first time i`ve seen a picture of it.
