Re: When in Thailand......

I don't know Mr Smith statto. Have a look at ROADA.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Advanced Drivers Association.
It's the basic technique of car control taught to the specialists in the UK Police.
However, you clearly know better.

Re: When in Thailand......

Why is it impossible? So what if someone cuts in - you're not going backwards are you? Just ease off - it's that simple.

Re: Good British TV series and documentaries

Very interesting suggestions
For crime, the following are top notch
Morse (on you tube), its prequel Endeavour (another series about to start), Frost (David Jason - a brilliant actor)
For American comedy
Malcolm in the Middle

Re: The Brick House.

This is now my "local" The choice of beer is outstanding. Old Speckled Hen on draft is my choice but there are plenty of others to suit all pockets. The food is wonderful. I've had 5 meals so far, all perfectly cooked. Incidentally, non-greasy chips, crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside just l...

Re: Road Safety

I've only used Grab 3 times (all very recently). All 3 drivers (including 2 ladies) were capable of passing the ROADA test in the UK. Far higher standard than many Western drivers over here. Long may the attempts to improve all of our driving standards continue.

Re: Smart Phone wanted

Re: Thailand #1 on road death ranking list

Modern cars are designed to fall apart all around you in a crash - but the passenger cabin itself tends to stay relatively intact in even the worst smash.
