Gothic Road Safety Billboard, Hanoi Vietnam WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES

Suburban gothic of the most explicit.

I took these photos in Hanoi Vietnam in January this year. I couldn't believe this billboard was just out on the street, though i guess after years ravaged by war..perhaps one comes to terms with violence and injury.

We deduced that they were part of a Health and Safety campaign to reduce the incidence of street fighting and road accidents. They clearly had the desired effect on me, as i was completely freaked out by the traffic and didn't touch a sword once. DIdnt seem to make much diffence to the local drivers though!
