  1. Again a top example of thai , let say, less educated way of dealing with new things or with the fake reality of being free.
    If i see the coaches , trucks , minivans and what more with disco lights , blue and red at the front , white , blue , and red at the back , lazers pointing everywhere with music sounding 500 meters away , then it should be very clear that this taxi motorbike driver is in need for the death penalty , or did he forget to pay the teamoney on the money spitting road blocks.
    I am also sure that this way of having lights around you will distract for sure the drivers who like to pass the red lights with no hestitaion , where police are standing and looking as it is normal. keep up like this thailand officials , it all going down the drain…………………………..
