The car failed to take a curve and instead took flight into a ravine

Another day, another crash. Best news is that no one was hurt.

Speeding is out of the question...

That makes about the 10th car this year to 'take flight' at that bend in the road - plus 2 fatal motorbike accidents at the same point.

Glad someone is keeping count.


It wasn't the car that failed to take the bend - it was the driver!

The car is to blame, Logic. Where have you been?


Maybe it is one of those new cars I am reading about - the ones that will drive themselves. (BBC web site - autonomous cars)

There is light at the end of the dark traffic 'tunnel'.
Once we get the self driving cars on Phuket, traffic becomes much safer.
