It still has to be decided who broke the law

Mini Vans drive fast,ignore speed advices, it is all just money-money, and with no RTP law enforcement towards Mini vans, often driven by police officers in their free time, what can you expect?
Motorbikes drive out of site sois to the left without looking what is coming from the right
Here we have a mixture of thai 'culture' on the road
