This is a classic picture which is being widely shared on Facebook at the moment. It clearly shows what is wrong with traffic in Bangkok. This looks like the road in front of Chatuchak where passenger vans & taxis compete with buses to pick up passengers. Although buses and other big vehicles are not allowed in the right hand lane, you can see them using it to overtake other vehicles and then cut in front of them to stop to pick up passengers. Some don’t even go to the far left lane before stopping to drop off or pick up passengers. You often see them stopping in the middle of the road which is so dangerous for passengers and an annoyance for vehicles behind them.
There are traffic laws against this kind of practice but as usual the law is not enforced. And when it is, it is never consistent. It is the truth that most drivers are not scared of the police or the consequences.
