"Ready, Set, Ngo!"

A sea of motorcyclists line up and wait for the race to begin every time the light turns green in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Approximately 1.5 million motorcycles enter Ho Chi Minh City every day. There are 25 motorbikes for every car. In this pic, it looks more like 50 motorbikes for every car.
