Authorities target dangerous foreign drivers in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Cheek.

Then again I suppose it must be difficult for Americans and Europeans to get used to driving on the correct side of the road, I could see many of them getting into trouble, unlike we Brits who are naturally superior drivers due to our advanced testing, and knowledge of how to drive on the right.

I don't know why you guys couldn't just follow our lead. We tell you not to form your own government but nope, and look at you now, government is shut down. We tell you not to start the Euro but nope, you had to go ahead and cause a financial crisis, and now your over here annoying the Thais with your bad driving habits.

Strewth. Maybe we should restart the Empire and sort you lot out. coffee1.gif

I am not from any of the places you mentioned, however, from where I sit the Brits are no better than anyone else! What a crock!! I see more Brits in accidents here in Chiang Mai than any other country. I guess you will have to put a hold on restarting the Empire!

All these deaths on the Thai roads I am sure most are mostly caused by the bad driving foreigners teaching the blameless Thai drivers bad habits, better if all aliens were banned from driving on the wonderfully safe Thai roads altogether Stop the carnage,

Well, when you want to obscure the ridiculous driving of the thai people that there is only one way left, blame the bloody foreigners and tourists! Yes, they are trying to make friends all over the world!wai.gifwai2.gifclap2.gif

First special courts set up to scam foreigners. Now this. What a joke of a country. A special task force for foreign drivers?

Is this some kind of joke. Many Thais do not have licenses and are also terrible drivers and make up a higher percentage of road users. Another idea to hit the tourists for money perhaps?

"...but who also get behind the wheel of a vehicle without having the correct documentation, such as an international driving license."

Rental cars do not require international driving licenses ... does anyone know if Thai law does?

Did you seriously just said that rental cars don't require international driving licenses? well actually you are correct... THE CAR DOESN'T but the person DRIVING THE CAR needs one!

whether its a car, truck, or a motorbike, rented, borrowed or even stolen (might get an extra fine for that one) you, the driver, needs the proper documentation, which is either a driving license issued in the country where the vehicle is being operated and registered, or an international driving license from your own country, which will indicate the countries in which the driving license is valid.

Technically any European or American driving license is NOT valid in Thailand, as is vice versa. a Thai driving license DOES NOT work in Europe, unless you have acquired the Thai International Driving license (valid one year)

there's plenty of farang tourists who have NEVER driven a bike who decide to rent a 100cc scooter or honda wave and get into accidents/trouble. sure, thai drivers are not the best of the world, but at least most thai kids have been driving a motorcycle since the age of 11. farang have not.

Another useless waste of resources. They have all the statistics under the sun to show were their problems are, and yet they totally disregard this.
