I dont know wide that road is but the appears from the photo to have been driving on the right hand side and probable cause . Thai people dont seem to be able to stay on their side of the road when going around bends especially blind bends .

My wife and i were coming back to the house after going to the market this morning and were almost hit by a pick up coming around a bend on our soi and i cursed the hell out of the driver only to be told it was a monk from the local temple . I again abused him and told her i didnt care what he was .

There are no sides/lanes/rights of way/priorities etc, it's one stretch of concrete on the way to gods waiting room.

That's the problem and does not matter where they go to, 2 wheels are always out of the lane. Lines suppose to be as walls, but in Thailand roads are just decorated by meaningless lines.

When I see these reports, my heart falls. Same thing over and over and over. Only Thai people can stop this. Up to them. We can do nothing and I do not cry for them anymore because this is how they choose to live.

Yep You can tell them 100 times not to do this and they still do. let the slaughter continue. Thailand was worried about that virus The only virus Thailand has to worry about is the road slaughter

I see many school bus that shouldn't be allowed on the roads as they don't look safe at all, bus without safety belts, kids head hanging over the open windows, no supervisor riding with them, etc., do they go for a regular safety check & maintenance? what are school bus safety requirements here,  None?
