I ALWAYS look both ways before I go through a light that has just changed to green.

We all see daily that a large part of the Phuket traffic police not do their duty, ..traffic law enforcement.
Why to have them? For what? 
Any one surprised that Thailand officially is now nr 1 deadly traffic country in the world?
They are a disgrace for the RTP and good for nothing.

Terrible tragedy 2 lives lost because one fool was impatient it is a shame that the driver of the car didnt wait just that bit longer to make sure the fool driving the bus would stop ,the thai authorities realy need to take a good look at themselves in regards to road safety this is just not acceptable in any country .

I did the drive of death yesterday, risking life on the roads.  Followed 2 police officers for about 3km, speeding helmet less riders going past, ghost riding going past, 3 school girls on a bike with the driver on the phone riding one handed with her two friends on the back, guess what the police did, yep, nothing!

Daily we see speeding through red lights On Phuket.
And with speeding I mean real with high speed.
It is a miracle that not more of such 'murder red light driving' take place.

Driving through red light makes a driver a criminal!
Such a crime justify doing prison time, and never issued a driving license again!

This driver was not reckless driving, he was murderess criminal driving.

It just never stops. Public transport drivers are the worst effing drivers on the planet and are responsible for so much death and carnage throughout the country.  But nothing happens, nothing changes...and Thai officials are completely incapable of addressing the issue. How can the PM just sit back and watch this daily madness, and continue to take no meaningful action? It is flat out despicable.

I hope the bus driver is jailed for minimum 10 years for murder and is ordered to pay 5 million for each death to the family. This guy should never have been on the roads let along taking passengers. If he is in jail for years and is forced to sell his house for compensation then publish on all news networks then other drivers will see that Phuket is serious about road safety.
