Seems thais have a great ability to hit stationary objects.

 

If they ever did show any inclination to fight in a war, they would make great kamikazes.  🤣

what's wrong with the Thais, can't they pick somebody else to injure or have accidents with.... it's always the Chinese, (I know there are 1.4 billion of them) if T.A.T doesn't want them I am sure there are other ways to get rid of them 555

I didn't realize TAT was so clever as to lure them into country and then try to knock them off one by one.

When will this stop? Bloody idiots behind the wheel. There is no end in sight, unfortunately!

Turns out this was the driver who had just been fired for erratic driving mere hours before this accident.

Unbelievable, avoiding a tree branch, and chose to have a head on with a power pole instead...

The tree branch was placed in the road to warn drivers that there was a power pole close to the road.

They are very superstitious people.  It would only take something to go "viral" in China proclaiming Phuket is "unlucky" for Chinese people and Chinese tourist numbers would fall off a cliff here. 

Namkangman.........Please do not give the locals ideas,,,,,they are doing quite well with the boats and minivans as it is. :sorry:

For decades here, they have just carried on as if the people will continue to come here, despite the scams, lack of transport, crumbling infrastructure, polluted beach water etc etc etc.

 

Slowly, but surely, Phuket lost a huge portion of the western market, and filled it with package holiday Chinese and Russians. 

 

The Russian market took a dive after the sanctions were placed on Russia, for the invasion of Ukraine, but they are back now, for how long, who knows, because the Russian economy is not great. 

 

If Phuket was to lose the Chinese market, picture Phuket's tourism industry, post tsunami, but without the tsunami. 

 

##Queue the members that will post that they wish it would happen, but having considered the consequences for themselves, if it did happen.##

I hope these drivers are all drug tested after these incidents...

or even alcohol/drug intoxication BEFORE they even start their drive.
