Traffic Madness - for real

Anybody who spends any time at all in Cambodia (and some other parts of Southeast Asia) becomes familiar with the unusual driving customs of the locals, and how difficult it is to adapt when going home. Here, we offer a tribute to the moto, or motorcycle - usually a Japanese 110cc or 125cc scooter - that is occasionally used for personal transportation, but more often used as the people-carrier and small goods vehicle of choice.

You never have the camera for the best shots, and you're often in a hurry trying to snatch the shot - sorry if some of these are small or blurry. Thanks to Andy Hadcroft, Kelly Drake, Seb Coles, Andy Booth, and the Rev Charles Dittmeier for the images.
