In some areas of Vietnam, Vietnamese people join traffic with no rules. They can participate in traffic right after drinking beer and wine, use horn loudly to surpass, pass on the right, turn left or right with no turn signals, or ride into the other vehicle lanes.
It is hence recommended to stay safe when riding motorbikes in Vietnam and in addition to learning the basic regulations of the law on road traffic, you also have to know about the traffic habits of Vietnamese people. Please be mindful of keeping right from the traffic, and monitoring the speed at allowed limits of 40 kilometers per hour in towns and 60 kilometers per hour outside of towns.
It is recommended to use the horn and flash headlights when your view is limited at the corners. Also, use turn signals and also turn your head to look back when you want to change the lane or directions. Be careful when you want to surpass because many people cross the street, change the lane, or direction without any signal, likewise when you ride in the tracks or cross the forests, please be over cautious.
Please remember, many local people and their animals have a habit of crossing the road freely and hence caution needs to be exercised at all times.
