Never happen.  "Must get somewhere quick quick!!!" 

Thai drivers seem dead set on killing more people on the road each day than the entire number of Covid deaths.  The slaughter will continue unabated.  Noul will just assist in helping Thai drivers cull the herd.

They just don't get it at all; i've tried explaining to Thai relatives about how to drive in different conditions but they just give me dumb looks and shrug their shoulders.  They are happy to rely on lucky charms !

Let them continue to cull the population. As long as they don't wipe me and mine out. Darwinism at its best. Long may it continue.

I have taught my Thai GF to slow down in rain, and pull over to the side in a safe area and put the flashers on if it gets too heavy.

It's Thai-bashing to say Thais cannot be trained to drive safely. The real problem is the training they get to qualify for a driving license is abysmal.

Unfortunately it isnt obvious to a lot of drivers here!

As I said before. Give them 2 options.

1) Drive safely

2) Drive as fast as you can always.

Who wins??

Nobody but they will always take number 2.🙄🙄🙄🙄😡😡😡😡😷😷😷😷
