come drive in thailand

During my time driving in Thailand, I noticed several significant factors:

  1. Tailgating: Many drivers follow closely behind the vehicle in front of them, increasing the risk of rear-end collisions.
  2. Fast Motorbikes: Motorcyclists often move swiftly through traffic, many without helmets.
  3. Steady Traffic: Traffic flow is heavy with a steady stream of vehicles.
  4. Mixed Traffic: A wide variety and types of vehicles share the road compared to back home.

Tailgating is particularly concerning. Research shows that following another vehicle within 2 seconds increases the risk of accidents. I suggest 2 should be your minimum. In fact i strongly suggest 5 seconds to eliminate all issues. It’s the time you need when trouble comes. Try 5 and see what you think.

Come hear a crash research based driver education session based on extensive experience of helping drivers change, adapt and enjoy this exciting world of driving.

  • I wondered about the TUK TUK’s and their risk level.
  • I also wondered about the motorbike crash rates because I saw so many bikes with people not wearing helmets.
