asian drivers – is it safe to cross the road?

Check out a post I wrote about Asian Drivers  and my school of fish theroy – developed in Chaing Mai, Thailand.

“Is it safe to be a pedestrian?  A cyclist? How do you cross the road ” I ask an expat in Chaing Mai

biking - not in Thailand which I have done but in my city

 See elsewhere in this blog for a ‘cycling in Bangkok’ story – or is it in my other blog?  I cant remember!

One thought on “asian drivers – is it safe to cross the road?

  1. Agreed, it isn’t safe to cross the road in Asia, however Thailand is one of the safest I’ve seen (like Singapore). Among the worst is Vietnam (so man bikes moving so fast), and India, like Vietnam, but less bikes and more SUVs that don’t really care about people on the road. About the idea about sending “western” drivers to Asia to learn how to drive, what a great idea, no one gets angry, traffic moves and people pay attention. I personally think we have a lot to learn from this continent on many things.
