    Sukhumvit 103/1 taxi boys on iy again

    one killed by a stray bullet when two groups of taxi motorcyclists engaged in a brawl in front of Soi Udomsuk 1 because a group of taxi motorcyclists were annoyed that a new group had opened a stand nearby. Police are checking footage of security cameras in the area before making arrests

    At the Night Market entrance to the bottom section of Loi Kroh road in Chiang Mai there is a Tuk Tuk driver who parks his rig "almost" but not quite blocking the entrance. He sort of "owns" that prime spot because it gives him first chance at the potential customers. Lord help any outside driver who tries to take his spot. I knew this because I always recognized the same guy there.

    When Pui was alive she had a share in a tuk tuk business with a man from Laos. Pui financed the vehicle and the Laos driver searched for passengers. Pui told me that there is a real hierarchy in how the whole system runs in the city, and certain palms have to be greased. Sadly, Pui's driver was parked on the moat road when the drunken son of a wealthy Thai man lost control of his truck and smashed into Pui's driver and tuk tuk. It totaled the tuk tuk and put the driver in the hospital. Two years later the driver succumbed to his injuries. Typical of Thailand, neither Pui nor her driver were compensated. Pui was still paying for the drivers medical bills when I met her.
