On December 15, we all will be required to wear a helmet inside Saigon for the very first time. In fact, you are seeing people wearing helmets more and more each day.
My student from Vietnam Airlines brought me a nice helmet from Taiwan that meets ISO requirements a couple months ago. Surprisingly, I am actually wearing it, most of the time. Well, on Saturday, I might as well get used to wearing it.
Rumor is flying around that the helmet law will only be enforced during the day but not at night. Just a rumor I am hearing but with Christmas and New Years coming, I think the police will be lax with the law during the evenings.
Here is a good article about helmets up in Hanoi. I thought about taking my helmet to a Decal Shop myself. Do you have a “cool” helmet?
