PHUKET: The UK’s Channel 4 recently aired a documentary entitled 'The Undocumented Dangers of Thailand’s Roads'.

The Phuket Gazette is grateful to Channel 4, as should be Phuket's tourism professionals, for putting the dangers of our roads in the minds of tourists precisely when needed: just before the start of the nationwide “Seven Days of Danger” road-safety campaign which ended last week.

However, it was disheartening to hear the account of Brighton-based solicitor Rachel Cooper whose son Felix perished in Thailand when the bus he was travelling in collided with a truck.
