With gas prices here in the US of A rising at a steady rate, I would like to think that maybe someday we'll see as many 2-wheelers on the road as 4-wheeler cages...!

Great pictures.

The Ao Dai is a traditional Vietnamese dress. These days, most Vietnamese wear western clothes, but still many wear Ao Dai's out of choice or because it's a part of their work/school uniform. So you see a lot riding around Saigon:

Family Transport

Bikes are limited to carrying 2 x adults. I'm not sure if there is a limit on the number of kids though, so you often get an entire family on one bike:

Helmet Law

Another afternoon school run.

A new compulsory helmet law came into force in December 2007 in Vietnam. It's now compulsory to wear helmets everywhere. AFAIK the helmet law applies to all ages, however if you are under 14, although you are required to wear a helmet, there is not penalty if you don't....

So effectively the helmet law applies to over 14 years only.

He heard that a large percentage of riders in the states carry a large spare tire around their midriff.

My personal best observation was 5 - Father driving, 2 kids standing in front of him, wife sidesaddle in back holding a baby.
