All too often in Thailand, rich young people seem to find ways to walk away from justice following horrific road "accidents". But is this limited to the rich in Thailand?
The owner of this Ford Ranger XLT has made a few modifications to the vehicle. For one thing, he has added a nice set of alloy rims, and attempted to ape the look of the Wildtrack with some additions to the cargo bed. But there is one other alteration that has been made to the truck which is more than a little strange. Can you spot it?

Many guests in Thailand seem to be guilty of a common misconception. This is evidenced by the overuse of phrases like "Only In Thailand" as a meta-tag to life here, most usually to accompany tragic accidents, or the latest corruption case, or whatever it may be.
The reality is that many of these kinds of tragic accidents are not confined to Thailand. Take this motorcycle accident as an example....
Road accidents happen all the time in Thailand. And while it is very true to say that travelling on the roads here is dangerous, it is sometimes easy to forget that crazy "accidents" can happen anywhere that cars and bikes can be found. Here are a few examples from places outside Thailand, just to remind us that it isn't "only in Thailand".
To some, the new car scheme might seem like a great thing. To others, the scheme might have provided too sweet a deal to pass up. At the end of the day.... there is no such thing as a free lunch.
Another rich and well connected Thai man has gotten himself involved in a road traffic 'accident'. And, naturally he has then attempted to use his status to avoid having to man up.
With the flood water moving in and affecting the lives of millions of people in Thailand and the region, and with climate change proponents predicting more of the same in the years ahead, it might be wise to have some plans in place to protect your transportation.
Here are some practical ways to avoid flood damage to your car.
Charn Thaiphadungpong, 57, dropped his nephew off at Temrak Suksa School in Nonthaburi. Then he had some problem with his car, and as a result of this problem he lost control of the car in the school campus and ran the car into a group of 20 sixth-grade students, killing one and injuring 6 others, two of them seriously.
How did this happen?
