Most thai people we saw get around on bikes or scooters. Sometimes three to a bike. Kids, babies, they can fit the whole family on.

Saw a couple set up like this with the little cane chair attached to the bike for the kids to sit in. It was tied on, wasn't just sitting there.

    I dunno what the big deal is, the kid's got a helmet on…
    Seriously though, it frightens me to think this happens but what astounds me is it's been going on for so long. There can't have been that many accidents or incidents if that's the case. Or have I been under ruling of a nanny state for too long!

    lol, I know – we're such rule followersthis was a light load – most bikes we saw had another couple on the back as wellI don't know what the road statistics are over there – tried not to think about it too much – there was a lot of dodgy road rules though and not many police on the roads

    These mopeds are the lifeblood of commerce and trade across much of the Indo-China region. Thailand's in fact starting to see more cars than bikes these days compared to what used to be the scene there about 20-30 years ago. Vietnam is just moped city wherever you go and yeah, you don't want to know about their road accident stats.Indonesia is another country where mopeds rule.

  6. Congratulations on getting the vox spotlight. 🙂

    Yes, I watched Luke Nguyen's Vietnam and noticed the traffic was pretty insane – I took out bike insurance for my son before we went but when we got to Thailand there was no way I'd let him hire one.
