This is what happens when you wade into traffic in Ho Chi Minh City. As an avid traveler it's interesting to see how different cultures approach traffic. In Vietnam, if you are a pedestrian and you want to cross the street then you must "wade" out into traffic. As a gentlemen informed us on the first day, you don't rush and you don't wait (or you'll never get across the street) you just gradually work your way into the street. Cars, motorcycles, and bikes are really good at avoiding pedestrians!
