You have to experience it to believe it. The best way is to hire a TukTuk and see if you can be a relaxed passenger
I would argue that anyone who has neverparticipated in traffic outside of North America really has no idea what it is like in the ROW.
I do stuff in Germany that would get me shot in the US - very tight passes, high speeds, filtering - and it is not only expected, it is often the law. And it is only moreso in countries where two-wheelers are the majority of transportation.
I find it funny that some riders will scream and yell about their rights, but when confronted with the reality of two-wheelers with full right-of-way, they panic.
