swerv: On Phuket they are amusing, when you not keep sufficient distance to the car in front of you, as the photos show.
You think you can understand that, Swerv?

I drove by this "accident" right after it happened.  There was a tour bus with it's right side completely smashed against the underpass wall.  Then there was a small truck and 1-2 cars smashed against the left side of the tour bus.  The bus was completely squeezed between the wall and the other cars.  It looked like all four of the vehicles had a ME FIRST attitude and all four drove as fast as they could in the rain to get to the front of the line.  Which resulted in none of them getting anywhere.  Aren't there any traffic cops in Phuket?  This is the most amazing place I've ever lived as far as no one ever getting in trouble for driving so badly.  It's really a shame.
