Thai media 77kaoded went into facetious overdrive in comments about Maruphong Road in the eastern seaboard city of Chachoengsao.

 

They said it was ideal for motorists who love to sit for ages in traffic and go nowhere.

 

Well, perhaps 1km in an hour.

 

They said rain at rush hour time just made matters worse.

 

They published a four minute video that was proof of the torture.

 

 

And reported that finally after many vehicles gave up and reversed back there was a collision between an SUV and a motorcycle that injured two children.

 

This resulted directly from the reversing back behavior, they claimed. 

 

Connecting roads were just as bad they said. 

 

Welcome to Thailand where rainy rush hours never disappoint, notes ASEAN NOW in an attempt to match local facetiousness.

When I use to live in Chiang Mai, this is why I drove a motorcycle.
Carefully (you have to drive defensively) you can bypass the cars.
But I've noticed a change in the motorcycle drivers behavior over the last few year and these moron will put themselves in harms way.
150 kilo motorcycle versus a 1 or 2 ton vehicle.  Motorcycles loses which is why the fatality rate on the roads is 80% motorcyclists.

The fatality rate is around 73% for riders and passengers of motorcycles.

Vulnerable road users comprise around 80% - this inclus=des pedestrians, cyclists and just about any other road user apart from 2 and 4 wheeled vehicles.
