Most Cambodians don't turn their head to look. Anywhere other than in front is a blind spot.

ok hands up all those that didn't get my subtlety implied point, that a lot of local road users have poor observational skills, and thought I was being serious.

I thought you were being serious. A lot of people thought you were serious. If you understand like a decent person you would think it was serious. Unfortunately it was taken at face value and I will use this to make a gross generalization about the foolish people in the village.

They are not taught that at school. Let's blame the school teachers for these problems.

Some of them are too busy watching their phones for Facebook, youtube, etc, while driving. Missus and I were in a Bajaj that almost ran over a lady on a bicycle yesterday.

Driver was insistent that it was the bicyclist’s fault. The poor lady just ‘appeared’ in front of him and shouldn’t have done that.

While there are a lot of good drivers in the KOW, the few distracted ones make it a nightmare.
