In response to a previous question, everyone except RTP know how stupid and dangerous these van drivers are.  Don't worry, there's millions more Chinese to come over and kill/hurt, mai pen rai!

Has anyone noticed how these lunatic van drivers drive,  they are bonkers! Not a shred of sense,  it's either too slow in the right hand overtaking lane or way too fast weaving in and out tailgating almost causing many accidents,  I'm  convinced the natives are nuts.

Chinese yet again. It must be more than just bad luck. Perhaps their Gods are not with them. Maybe left in China

Well, the photo's of the Van say it all.
How many passenger seats has such Van? Seat belts obligated?
Driving license, drugs + alcohol tests?
Driving hours book? Enough driver resting times?

Phuket needs 1 more vice governor, just for hospital visits.

Is it not time Vans get speed limiters?  Just 80 kmh.
The drivers can't think 'faster' than 80kmh anyway.
