Update: Latest report says that a man in an orange shirt, speaking Chinese and Khmer, intervened before police arrived. After some negotiation between the parties, the Chinese driver apologized and agreed to pay a $300 compensation fee to the tuktuk driver.

This fucktardery is getting worse every day. I think I will relocate my family to Vietnam before some Chinese kills them.

That's a good idea as the roads in Vietnam are perfectly safe.

It's the sidewalks that are not safe, roads are fine! Just don't forget to honk the horn every 5 seconds to let all folks in your 100m radius know you are there!

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I thought sidewalks were for driving on and parking only here! Always seems to be the case on Norodom. Beautiful new sidewalk constantly blocked by SUV's and or people burning down it on their moto's. I'm not sure the concept of "pedestrian" really exists in PP

I feel safer in Vietnam than in Cambodia, but you are right.

I live in Vietnam and never walk on the sidewalk. Only foreign tourists try to negotiate that obstacle course because they have not yet developed the 4-inch invisible force field around their body that repels Vietnamese drivers (on the wrong side of the road, or not).

Hey, when your time's up your time's up. :unknown:
You could be next.
