    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    Motorists really do take notice of signs which 'entertain' or convey a message.

    Them's big numbers for sure. Average for Th is running @ ~ 70 per day over this NY holiday period. Main contributor is cited as 'drink' but doesn't take fatigue and other factors into consideration. eg: Too many young inexperienced drivers travelling long distances.

    NZ's total road toll for 2012 is around 300. Similar sized country to Th ... lower population, not counting sheep!
    Cheers, Rob.

    Japan and Iceland (Malta is too small to include) look to be the safest countries to drive in...

    List of countries by traffic-related death rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    In order ranked by Road fatalities per 100,000 motor vehicles...

    Iceland 5 fatalities per 100,000 motor vehicles
    Japan 6.8
    Netherlands 7
    Sweden 7
    Switzerland 7
    United Kingdom 7
    Germany
    Ireland
    Australia 8
    Luxembourg
    Norway
    Spain
    Finland
    New Zealand 11

    Canada 13

    USA 15

    Thailand 118.8 fatalities per 100,000 motor vehicles

    Those figures are a bit skewed. NZ/AUS vehicles per capita is nearly 4x greater.

    I'd like to see a breakdown of fatalities in Th... eg: how many were rear tray passengers, on coaches or unrestrained? Many of the worst accidents here involve multiples, not small numbers like in Aus/NZ. Coach accidents are too common... usually caused by fatigue and excessive speed.
    Cheers, Rob.

    I'll leave that with you to research then... 555

    But yeah, you are right, there are many mitigating circumstances that skew results. Though I have driven all over the world and can't say I have found anywhere as safe and polite as the UK.... as for the worst? A toss up between Romania and the former Yugoslavia....

    Though I have never driven in Africa... but as a passenger it seemed pretty mad in Cairo...

    As long as they don't pull you out of the car and start "Inserting stuff in you".

    Is that all part of the service... or do you need to pay extra?

    Yes, UK drivers are certainly polite. Traffic lights out and everyone stops before the intersection to give-way... amazing! Thailand and southern Italy are similar ... every man for himself but Ities use the horn more.
