Hairy moments on a Honda

There are a number of tips to take on board if you want to ride a scooter or motorbike in heavy urban traffic and survive – avoid riding in blind spots, beware of cars which could suddenly make a turn, and keep your speed down to better read the surrounding environment.

The rider in the video above – zipping through traffic in Vietnam – seems to live by a different set of rules entirely. Namely, drive as fast as you can, weave in and out of extremely tight spaces, and beep your horn to alert people of the need to get out of your way.

Amazingly, despite some incredibly dangerous (and stupid) manoeuvres and a general lack of respect for their own safety, the rider manages not to die. Don’t try this at home.
