Joe Ruelle - a famous Canadian blogger - who is quite a figure in Vietnam public media, once jokingly said that:

The traffic rule of thumb that all pedestrians in Vietnam have to accept is that:
- Zebra Crossing: vehicles still run and you cannot cross
- Zebra Crossing with red lights: vehicles still run and you cannot cross
- Zebra Crossing with red lights and a few policemen at the roundabout: vehicles still run and you still cannot cross
- Zebra Crossing, Red lights, Policemen at the roundabout and the vehicle is out of gas: YES, you can cross
