Re: Would you drive a black car in Hua Hin?

I've had both black cars and white ones. What I want to know is why do white cars attract black dirt and black cars attract white dirt....... lol

Re: Tougher test for licences

And how long will it take for the driving schools to take the money and issue the certificate. There doesn't seem to be any check and balance which isn't surprising. A few hours driving qualifies you to hold a licence?? ....

Re: Would you drive a black car in Hua Hin?

Tests have shown that although the paint temperature can be over 50 degrees difference between white and black cars, the inside temperature only has a difference of 5 or 6 degrees and that is very temporary once the AC is turned on.

Re: Children day air show tragedy, Hat Yai

A posthumous promotion is an advancement in rank or position in the case of a person who is dead. Posthumous promotions are most often associated with the military, but may be granted in other fields such as business, science, or the arts. The granting of posthumous military decorations and promoti...

Re: 20% of emergency patients die in traffic

Section 13 (500B) [Cars and motorcycles cannot use flash-light, siren signal, whistle signal, faltering sound, etc, except emergency vehicles, military and police vehicles) Flashing lights pretty much covers the distinction between emergency vehicles and regular traffic. I have read somewhere that t...

Re: Dual-pricing in Thailand: Is it time to do away with the 'farang tax'?

I have taken kids to the events of the day, first my kids (now too old) and now my grandkids. Never had a problem and the kids usually come away with 'freebies'. The guy who turned you away, Takieb needs his arse kicked. Children's day is for all children as is teacher's day. Not that I liked it but...

Re: Hua Hin bus station relocating?

Maybe it was just 1st day problems. We stood in the queue for a good 20 mins. It was absolute chaos. However I'll see what it's like when I drop my daughter off on Monday.

Re: Hua Hin bus station relocating?

I was there today booking tickets for my daughter. ABSOLUTE SHAMBLES!. It's a much smaller place and they seem to share it with half a dozen mini-vans. The buses have no organised parking and shuffle around for space. The mini-vans are parked everywhere and dropping passengers in the middle of the r...

Re: 90kph speed limit for passenger vans proposed

Looks like the usual communication failure. Only a few days ago, the following was said: he Transport Ministry has ordered that all 6,400 interprovincial passenger vans operating out of Bangkok be replaced with microbuses by year-end to improve safety. The 6,431 vans operating under concessions from...

As has already been said, the vans are not reckless. Put those same drivers into any vehicle and the same will happen.

Re: Hua Hin - Pattaya ferry project news and updates

What a surprise. Definitely put me off the trip. What with the waiting and time embarking and disembarking, it doesn't look like much time is saved. I'll stick to driving. Now if the government had stuck by their original plan, spending 14 bn baht for new piers and large car and truck carrying ferri...

Re: 90kph speed limit for passenger vans proposed

Good article. Very true. Also quite brave as 'You are not allowed to criticise the government or the military'. Careful that Section 44 is not used against him.
