Crazy Roadways of Thailand

We’ve mentioned before how crazy the roads are around here. They’re filled with loads of cars, motorbikes, tuk-tuks, huge trucks.  Yellow lines for car lanes are really more of a suggestion than a law, as are one-way signs and traffic lights.

 

Here are a few pics of some of the crazy streets of Thailand (multiply it 3-fold to imagine traffic in Bangkok).

3+ people on a motorbike (5 is the most we’ve seen):

 

 

5 lanes where there should be only 2:

  1. Thanks for posting the video. I am continually amazed at how adventursome you two are! Pretty sure you wouldn’t be seeing Wayne out there riding a scooter around in that country!
