This link to a video taken at a road junction in Saigon - nothing bad happens just unbelievable traffic. Has to be seen to be believed...

Not working here

I spent a few days at Inchon (a few miles West of Seoul) Korea, and was amazed at how much could be carried on the small scooters and bikes that are now necessary to bypass the jams.

I will try to find some photos, but I recall such things as 8 calor gas bottles, three fence posts (the concrete variety), fence panels (over there they are about 6' x 4') and even another scooter.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.
