  1. Thai insurance companies are the same as all others about meeting the terms and conditions. What I meant was that the monetary amounts paid out for a correct personal injury claim are very low compared to US/European settlements.
  2. Payouts for personal injury and death are low. Sent from my SM-C900F using Tapatalk
  3. I think that is going back in time a fair while. Same could be said of some European banks or saying some US banks received money from slave owners in the past.
  4. When a single lane road approaches a town or village and becomes a two lane road the traffic is initially directed into the outside lane. So natural to continue in that lane.
  5. Statistics can be disputed as to accuracy but here is a link to the latest wikopedia information. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_traffic-related_death_rate
  6. When a road goes from single carriageway to 2 lanes the line markings direct traffic into the outside lane. This encourages undertaking.
  7. The left is the right side. Keeps your sword arm nearest to your enemy.
  8. So agreed Thailand driving is abysmal. Steps that could be taken. On the road training and testing. Enforcement of moving traffic violations . Dangerous overtaking, driving on the wrong side of the road, DUI. Overloaded vehicles. Speeding. Make the speed limits realistic on main roads 30kph on a 3 lane highway 24/7 because a school is in the area will not be complied with. Discourage U turns. More roundabouts and educate people how to use them. Enforcement of driving without a licence/underage etc. etc..
  9. Another reason is the poor condition of many roads. The traffic manoeuvres around deep holes and drivers use the outside lane because the nearside lane is rutted by heavy trucks .
  10. On the street maybe, but an aircon restaurant in BKK could be that sort of price.
  11. Typing this on long distsnce Thai bus, 6hr travel ,+ a free meal stop about 370฿. VIP about 30 seats (1seat aisle 2 configuration upstairs. WC below. Car or taxi would be marginally quicker but less safe. Until the Chinese build the high speed rail lines busses are quicker than by train. A lot cheaper than flights. 12 seat vehicles are supposed to be phased out because of poor safety records and will be replaced by specially designed 20 seat busses.

  12. The two customers should try a visit to Thailand and try that trick.

  14. Bus, minibus, train fly or taxi are all options. Fly quickest, train slowest. VIP bus probably the best overall option.
