Most Thais?  Says who?

I would guess about 30% of Thais driving don't have a driver's license.  My wife's father drives a beat up old pickup for his work. He's never had a license and has been driving 40+ years without one. This is very common outside of Bangkok. He had the nerve to try and drive our car but I wouldn't let him for insurance reasons.

Can you imagine a pair of UK traffic cops being let loose in Thailand 

they would be burned out after a few hour with the amount of tickets they would issue.(1000s)

And the Thai motorists wouldn’t know what hit them.

Considering the way they drive or park, how could they earn a license? They drive like they don't have them, or much of anything for that "matter"

Who does?  All of them?  Says who?

 

"They drive like they don't have...much of anything for that matter"?  

What does that mean?

Your guess may be right but 30% is not "most".

I can see the white Mazda? Driver got cut up, but the other car was well ahead of the Mazda when he crashed.  My best guess - he was reaching for his phone to video the other car, when he hit the central concrete barrier, then did a wild panic swerve?

Again, the MC rider does not wear a helmet.

Just another example of Thais driving as if they are playing a video game.
