Too many deaths already this year

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Too many deaths already this year

Post by explorer » Sat Jan 12, 2019 3:22 pm

I have not counted up the deaths so far this year, but it must be more than one per day.

Too many people are dying too young. The authorities dont want to investigate the causes of these deaths. So we dont know what can be done to prevent similar deaths in the future.

With the amount you have to say and expert advice rendered on multiple subjects wouldn't it be a better idea for you to start your own forum and an advice help line.

43 dead in ten days according to this. Making all drivers pass a driver's license could do something to reduce the number of deaths.

Might help if truck drivers and bus drivers did a driving test, plus attend some sort of defensive driving course. Not to mention random meth testing for bus and truck drivers.

Yuh, but aren't we all saying this with our western hats on as the benchmark? Sure, there's heaps of room for improvement but this is asia/kow.

Driving through a red light and not giving a fuck isn't a cultural thing, it's just being a selfish fuckwit
