  1. The minimum height for phones cables in France is 6 meters ; the same for electric cables . But nearly 99% are under ground in a city .
  2. So where are the " ting tong minibus " ? There are minimum 85,000 minibus in Thailand, so 156,089 meno 85,000 = 71,089 buses and coaches ? I don't think so, they are much more than 71,000
  3. And not " and they can be reclaimed by their owners after the end of Songkran " but the Prime Minister can ask special mills to compress these vehicles and make with them a nice Cesar compressions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/César_Baldaccini
  4. Bullshit; If there is no air in the bottles, the brakes are blocked; impossible to go . It was my job during 13 years all over Europe, including behind the Iron Curtain ( 1971-1983 ) Maybe the tingtong driver did like that, pumping, pumping...but the problem was about the brakes drums; they were so hot so the brake lining cannot touch the cylinder in which they are because of dilating . When downhill you MUST go the same speed you had when climbing .But none thai people know about that; they don't learn in school how to drive safely. Do that experience, follow a minibus driver downhill Doi Inthanon for example..It stinks a lot because he never use the correct gear and has always his foot on the brake pedal.

    New point system aims to weed out bad drivers

    Shot this morning on rd 22 between Sawang Daen Din and Nong Han ; would like to know --how many points the driver of the tractor will lose ? driving in the opposite direction --how many points the driver of the pickup will lose ? too many children in the back

    Cats & Dogs

    45 days ; don't know what kind of dog ; narak, narak ..
  9. This morning on rd 22 ; 11 km before arriving in Sawang Daen Din; I saw the accident, I was at about 100 meters ; the truck was on the opposite lane, turned suddenly to the right stopped brutally on the parapet of the bridge and lost his first undercarriage; The door was opened by .................me ; it was difficult to open it; he did that alone , nobody used brakes in front of him; the driver was not at his normal place but in the passenger seat; don't know why; surely he didn't have his safety belt .. Don't know why he did like that..maybe sleeping ? Fortunately he was driving not too fast, about 60/70 km/h .. Why I think about that? because it was my job when working in Europe. The parapet of the bridge is broken on about 3 meters. The man is phoning to the hospital; he is not the driver of this truck I came back with my MTBike to help if necessary . I was the first person arriving on the truck .
