51% teens pregnancy? This is huge. In my country I know almost nobody who got pregnant before finishing high school... 

Alaska? Very cold there, I believe.

There will of course, be those who will reckon that being

”The Hub Of Road Trauma” is a Badge of Courage.

There's something wrong with that percentage, it might be up or down 51%, after all it is a Thai statistic??

Corruption is the thread that can be traced to many of the ills that plague Thailand. Until that condition is remedied, progress will be delayed for decades.

Does anyone think that the red light/speed cameras would have been introduced if they were not seen as a profit generator?

Does it matter where the money goes, if it would make people to stop at a red light? The fines should be much higher though.

It is very hard to find anything positive to say on this whole topic.  In my short 26 years in Bangkok, nothing has improved regards the standard of driving - and apart from the mid-month and end-of-month cash collections from the boys in brown, they seem to turn a blind eye as well to most violations.

 

Pretty much exactly the same that everyone who has lived here 10 + years has said to me. 

 

Each year a new initiative = Each year nothing changes

What age did kids finish high school in your country?

 

I finished at 16 in the UK, unfortunately many Thais finish at 15 or younger.

 

Besides all of the above, 51% teen pregnancy is quite alarming looked at from

a western perspective.
