Kurt, unfortunately it's not just the ones with air between their ears, I once met a school teacher who was due to be promoted to head mistress, we went out for food, she was driving, I had a few beers, at the end of the night she said "you drive", I replied " I can't i've had a few drinks" she said "oh that's alright, everybody drives after drinking"

Lucky us this thai gentleman hit a tree, and end his drive not at one of us.
Pity he could not use the thai excuse  'slippery road' as the road was dry.
Perhaps the car was doing something he didn't like?
Hahaha, this are simply not normal people. 
Hope never to meet them. They are dangerous. Should never be allowed to drive a car.

People with just air between their ears should not be allowed to drive a car.
That will make Thailand can upgrade from world bottom safety ranking to higher status. Yes?

Perhaps a bit 5E's, Smart and Thailand 4.0 upgrading in car driving lessons/examination training?
How about that?
