Reference: Fight for your rights, Bangkok Post, March 20, 2009

Motorists who have had to deal with the claims department of insurance companies cannot but sympathize with Khun Jessada's plight after he was rear ended by someone he describes as "a crazy expat" (Fight for your rights, Bangkok Post, March 20, 2009), and yet it must be said that most expats here are good drivers, much better than Thai drivers, and that most Thai drivers, though mild mannered, polite, kreng jai, and jaidee otherwise, often turn into The Hulk once behind a steering wheel, and take risks on the road that will make you gasp. It is strange irony for a Thai driver to lecture allegedly crazy expats on driving safety and etiquette.
