27,000 Deaths a Year?! (Bangkok’s Traffic Problem) – Bangkok Video



Published: 2018-11-08 17:05:03

If you’ve ever been to Bangkok, then you know how hectic the streets of Bangkok are. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the main roads of Bangkok are slammed with traffic jams — tuk tuks, motorbikes, taxis, buses, bicycles and pedestrians honking their horns as they inch closer to their destination.

A recent study by the World Health Organization founds that Thailand is the world’s second deadliest country in death rates by road accidents at ~27,000 per year. That’s outrageous.

Driving on a motorbike taxi in Bangkok is one of the scariest experiences you can have — especailly because they rarely provide you with a helmet — but that’s just how life unfolds in this bustling metropolis.

You’d think that traffic wouldn’t be so bad because Bangkok has both an efficient overground AND underground metro system… but it doesn’t seem to make any difference. What are your thoughts on how Bangkok (or any other city) can make the roads smoother? Please share your thoughts below.

  8. Hey. You changed the song. Way better than the last intro song. Nice pick. For YouTube the first 30 seconds is the most important. When i hear a crappy song it makes me just want to shut it off.
