If the songteaw is more than 7 years old ,which most of them are,they are supposed to pass an exhaust test annually.I will leave it to your imagination how they pass.

Another good reason to let Uber in the door.

Bad news, for such a beautiful place. Chiang Mai is really the heart of Thailand and this is how it's being treated. When will authorities waking up to this problem, and the people?

Well we definitely don't seem to be the heart and LUNGS of Thailand. Authorities don't wake up till like the movie "Lost In Space" and "Robbie shouts Danger Will Robinson Danger" like when the officials have trouble breathing.

Exactly!   In addition, look at the hundreds of SongTaews running almost bumper to bumper around the city,  each and every one pouring black exhaust fumes into the air.

Diesel particles are particularly dangerous as they lodge in the lungs.   The Land Transport folk don't seem to test exhausts very often.

An added hazard is to the passengers sitting in the rear, who cop a lungful of fumes every time the song taew moves off.

In many Chinese cities, diesel powered vehicles are not permitted, and trucks, pickups etc use LNG.

The VW company was fined a huge amount for allowing their new model with diesel engines to skip the compulsory standards.

 

 

 

Exactly, and there are studies that shows that these kinds of chemicals apparently (removing other factors out like age, sex, and race/ethnicity) affect the DNA of kids (the length of telomeres), in particular (pun intended). This study added to previous evidence that air pollution causes oxidative stress, which can damage lipids, proteins, and DNA. Sleep can also be disrupted, which might be related. And you thought drugs, STDs, and drinking and driving were bad?

 

Message me for the research, if you want.

Or their kids, wife, or mia noys, if they can connect the dots, that is. Where are the doctors in this debate?

We are moving back to Thailand in Jul-Aug time and thought about buying around Rayong (Ban Chang) and see all the storys around the internet about the pollution in air/water from Ma Tha Phut industrial area which has put us off completely,pity as it looked a nice place too.

           Any suggestions where would be nice ? has to be near to international schools.

Chiang Mai is a Province and a city, the Province is beautiful in parts.

Yes indeed  - about 20km out of the pollution.

Spraying water into the air is like using an elephant to catch grasshoppers!    Start with the polluters and test the exhausts of ALL diesel vehicles.

Diesel is banned in some large Chinese cities, and Liquid Gas is used.  It makes a huge difference.
