These people are crazy. Stoplights or signs are mere suggestions. Lanes are suggestions and the stripes are full of motorcycles, food vendors and various pedalled vehicles which cannot be legal by any standards. It's scary, but it's a total adrenaline rush. A drive up to Chiang Mai in the north, in the rain, with construction was scary. They don't believe in making it incredibly clear when you have two lanes or one of them is oncoming traffic. Can you say deathgrip? Of course the ride back from Chiang Mai was paused by soldiers carrying rifles. Since I didn't have an international driver's license I figured I was so screwed over. Alas, they were looking for Burmese drug smugglers and my 4 year old daughter (with blonde hair and blue eyes and pigtails) made them smile and wave us on.
