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.

They need to import some North Korean traffic guards.
