One travelling on the wrong side of the road maybe?

Or many times Thais will not turn on their headlights at night on bikes and their cars. They think that they are "Saving their battery".

Simple answer to all of this. Do not ride your bike when conditions prevent you from seeing properly, and always wear a helmet. One would think that by now the message would at least have started to get through.
