Passengers on Thai transport to be asked: "Is your driver behaving himself?

Recommended Posts

Eating lots of sticky rice (kaw neaw)  will make you sleepy. Do thai drivers know this? If you are driving long distance you should eat small quantity but eat a little again during stop over at gas station or resting area. Tapioca is also very sleep inducing. Tryptophan in yam and tapioca is the culprit , they put you to sleep. The Thais love their Tryptophan.

Are government officials aware of this problem? They been eating these stuffs all their lives I guess they don't even know.

   Only one driver driving long distance will be a hazard. How do you calculate "Hazard"?  Distance travel x the number of times the drivers take risks overtaking or speeding when road is wet. Or the amount of Tryptophan circulating in his blood. If your van for no reason slow down a little then speed up again it means the driver has fallen asleep, his foot is not pressing on the gas but when he wakes up he step on the gas again. Fell asleep and woke up just over a few seconds.

   Instead of travelling to Switzerland suicide assisted center called "Dignitas" you can take a number of trips in these little vans in Thailand you will finally achieve the same result.

More than a million drivers and other personnel will be checked - many to discover if they can actually see straight 

Some being able to see fullstop would be a start ..

Apart from his rather blunt nature and desire to get to the afterlife asap by driving like a kamikaze then yes .. sometimes ..
