BANGKOK, May 17 (TNA) – Commuters faced traffic congestion in many areas in Bangkok as over 800,000 students returned to 1,277 schools on the first day of this academic year.

 

Pol Gen Damrongsak Kittipraphat, deputy commissioner-general of the Royal Thai Police Office, said traffic congestion happened because schools resumed their full-scale on-site services but traffic police could handle it with their planned measures.

Welcome back to morning grid-lock, I wonder how many of those vehicles had a driver and one passenger?

When I worked at a large school in Chonburi, it amazed me how there was no program for the parents to drop their kids off at a very vacant lot just a few clicks away then bus them to the campus. Of course recommending it to the admins fell on deaf ears.

No mention of the fact that heavy rains last night resulting in some roads being flooded this morning.  I can usually get to school in about 20 minutes, but today it took closer to 40.  Fortunately I always try to arrive at least half and hour early.

Driver, nanny and 1 student.

Wait, that's more for International schools.
