Thailand comes in First

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Thailand comes in First

Post by phuketrichard » Sat Dec 08, 2018 2:53 pm

got ya.. :plus1:

Road deaths,,,
Thailand’s roads are the deadliest in Southeast Asia and among the worst in the world for vehicle accidents and fatalities, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) report released on Friday. The report showed the death rate per 100,000 population in Thailand was 32.7, far ahead of Vietnam which came second at 26.7. Singapore was the safest at 2.8. (see graphic).

How can anyone possibly be worse at driving than Cambodians?

Should it not be measured by passenger mile travelled? Measuring it by population assumes all travel the same amount. It's not surprising Singapore is low. although I'm sure they also have safe roads and good law enforcement.
I would guess Thais travel more miles than Khmers.
