Only if posted on the internet...............video could of just been sent to the BIB and the rest of the world would not be overly aware.

It might as well have been posted on the internet because, quite frankly, the rest of the world doesn't give a Tom Tit.

Car surfing was quite popular with me and my mates, except we would be doing it 70mph on the outback highways in western Australia. Cling or sit on the roof and driver would pass beers up to us. Or do it at lower speed around town and try and throw the guys on the roof off. All good fun and part of growing up where I came from.

No Tv back then in the bush so we had to make our own fun.

Ditto from me too. The Thai's beat hands down letting their children do this every day to school and back. What hypocrisy.  🙁

Now it is mentioned I have met quite a few that look and act like they could have been thrown from a car roof......several times 😄

Don't worry Chiang Mai, soon nobody even bothers to come. With 34.59 baht per euro, it is rather expensive too.

Since when has Thailand been civilized?  The driver allowed it in any case.  Who is she to tell them it’s dangerous.  It’s not like they were driving a whole family on a motorbike at night with no lights, going the wrong direction

Rich world tourists behaving like idiots with no regard for safety. Unlike the poor Burmese workers riding in the back of pick-ups, these tourists have choices in life.

I wouldn't drive too closely behind them.

 

 

Nonsense. She'd have been in for a payday if one of them fell off and damaged her bumper with their head.

Yes, since they think that is so fun, maybe someone can enslave them on a ship for a while or in a remote factory  ...with a bunch of beer and charge them for the vacation!!

Apparently nobody can tell anybody NOT to do anything here and you might be risking your life if you do. I don’t know WHO she is but probably someone with some power or she wouldn’t even consider it, someone who lived overseas maybe also?  I would certainly appreciate it if that was my dumbass son riding on top of there ....if someone stopped him.

 

That is why tourists do things like this, nobody ever says no here ...most they do is say “up to you” and even fail to warn people of obvious risks ...even when you ask.  Is it safe to do xyz? Yes, of course ...mai pen rai, no problem ...you might be dead at the end of the day but that is no problem for them!!
