If you’ve been to Thailand, you would’ve noticed a large chunk of the population scoots around on low-powered motorcycles, and it’s not an uncommon sight to see a whole family crammed onto a single motorcycle.
While the Thais are like many others and love their vehicles, Thailand’s roads are the second most dangerous in the world, according to a study from last year.
To be blunt, it’s a place where traffic rules aren’t very well respected or enforced.
Or rules in general for that matter. But that’s part of the Kingdom’s charms.
I also guess it’s all relative, though. I have a friend from Mumbai who says Bangkok’s traffic is a welcome change to what he experiences in his home city.
Thailand’s love affair with anything to do with life on the road is probably only equaled by its obsession with social media. This means the country’s driving habits are well documented and shared around, especially the funnier WOW moments, which you can see some examples of below.
