Ah, the curious traveler’s conundrum! I found myself pondering, with a touch of intrigue, the stark contrasts in driving experiences. How does navigating the bustling streets of Thailand compare to the familiar roads of British Columbia? My initial quest for knowledge revealed a tantalizing fact: Thailand’s driving conditions are markedly more challenging than much of Asia. But this revelation only sparked a deeper question – how do these risks stack up against the driving realities back home in the serene landscapes of Canada?
And then I found this… WORLD POPULATION REVIEW.
- Risk in Thailand = 30.7 deaths per 100,000 per year
- Risk in Canada = 5.8 deaths per 100,000 per year
Let’s calculate the increase in risk.
The increase in risk of death when traveling from Canada to Thailand, based on the mortality rates provided, is approximately 429.3%. This means that the risk of death is more than four times higher in Thailand compared to Canada, according to these statistics.
FOUR TIMES HIGHER!
Be careful when you are driving abroad!
