    Another horrible and probably avoidable crash yes. However I have to say that last time I caught a cab from Swampy into BKK I too begged the taxi driver to slow down and it made no difference. He was only thinking about how fast he could get us there so he could race back for another go.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    I have quite often asked taxi drivers to slow down. Usually pretty compliant though I do find their attention span is only about 20 minutes... 55
