    Traditional british drivers are the best in the world. It's obvious that they are not the cause of their own deaths.

    100% agree, I would put up a random Brit driver to handle difficult situations against a dozen Thais.

    Seasonal fluctuations seem to indicate a high proportion of tourists?

    Statistics again.

    Worst province Phuket
    By nationality British
    By cause road accidents

    But no where does it say that it was mostly Brits driving in Phuket...

    As I understand it the traffic flows too slow in Phuket to be of much danger.

    Now if you are 45 or less and going to go out on the piss on a rented mocy... Then yes leave the mocy at home!

    The secret of driving in Asia is take NOTHING for granted. Sounds easy but if coming from EU/US/Can people drive instinctively and here the instincts are ALL wrong.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    Those who cannot change their mind, cannot change anything.

    I used to get almost as worked up as piwannoy when it came to Thai driving but I got used to it and just ensure I'm in a bigger vehicle than they are nowadays...
