In Vietnam, motorbikes are everywhere! According to the Ministry of Transport figures from 2013, of the 90+ million population, 37 million were registered with a motorbike and only 2 million with a car.
Motorcycles outnumber cars by 10 to 1 in Vietnam, among the highest ratios in the world. Mark Magnier wrote in the Los Angeles Times, “With so many motorcycles on the road, more than half of Vietnam's 13,000 annual traffic fatalities are from head injuries — twice as many as in the United States. Fortunately, the figures are edging down with the new helmet law. Just about anything is carried on Vietnamese motorcycles, and it's not unusual to see four people spanning three generations, women riding sidesaddle, on one underpowered two-wheeler. Although all passengers are required to wear helmets, only those older than 6 face fines, so protective headgear on children is rare.
