You can now get index finger behind your eyeball.

When doing business you think it is reasonable to rip off your customers, your acquaintances, your business partners, your best friends and even your own family!

2. you ride your motorcycle the wrong way on the shoulder of the highway for 2-300 metres to get to an intersection because if you rode in the right direction you'd have to go 2 or 3 kms before you could make a U-turn,

Next step is using the mirrors to squeeze zits or plucking facial hairs out while waiting at the red light,

I hated motocycs using the side walk but sorry to say it did,nt take me long to start doing the same in traffic jams :unsure:

Ohh god, just did this sidewalk run today for first time.. yeahhhhhhhaaaa Im local

Thai traffic law? What is that? Never heard of and probably not many other know there is a Thai traffic law.

Btw, who has the right in the only roundabout in town, the one at the New Clocktower?

The one inside (coming from the right), biggest truck or highest speed?

:rolleyes::huh::o

If you had really become a local you wouldn't even need to ask that last question Sven...

A local wouldn't even look when driving into the roundabout so it wouldn't matter what he had to give way to.

Thanks, But I still give my top vote to:

"You are a local when you go into the bathroom and the muddy footprints on the toilet seat are your own."

You have passed your Thai driving test and now realise its actually LEGAL to drive the wrong way on the hard shoulder of a main road for a "short distance"

The threat of another Coup makes you just shrug your shoulders and think will the 7/11 still be open.
