Sign language used by Vietnamese drivers

Traffic police check in Vietnam

Traffic police checks are common on Vietnamese highways. Most drivers openly disregard the speed limits and they slow down only when they are close to places where the traffic police set up their checkpoints. The police keep moving these checkpoints. The drivers have come up with interesting hand-signals to warn drivers on the opposite lane about such checkpoints.
