When you drive in Thailand, the rules change, and some of them are quite curious. Here is a collection of driving and traffic tidbits.
Q: How many people fit on a small scooter in Thailand?
A: 3 or 4 is not uncommon, but I have seen 5. Only two are legal, by the way, but nobody cares about that.
Q: What kind of helmet is the most popular in Thailand?
A: The one that prevents you from getting a fine. This is mostly a super cheap proforma helmet which costs about $3.- or 4.- God forbid you need it to protect yourself in an accident.
