Samui remains the single most dangerous place to drive, on planet earth. The death toll in Thailand is at the top of the leaderboard, but Samui tops that by multitudes. Alot of inexperienced drivers, doing an Andretti imitation, on super dangerous roads. Alot of Thais and foreigners leave Samui in wooden boxes. Alot.

In general taxis on Koh Samui drives too fast for the road conditions – both surface and visibility – when full, and utterly slow, when empty. However, the traffic on the specified hill is sometimes problematic – I know well from years of experience – as others have already described it; sometimes when passing I wonder how that big truck managed to end, as it did, but probably the common "brake failure".

 

I also wonder how that pole got through the taxi (the body on the road is the taxi driver)...

The rear of the car is wrapped around the power pole. I have a picture from a different angle but it won't upload.

Unfortunately the unsuspecting tourists don't know what they are getting themselves into when they get into a cab.
