After a long dry period of time there is a lot of 'tire rubber' on the road.

Great pictures, PW. People here love to see the bottoms of their car. Just put it ups and down, or on the site.

I love seeing green plate taxis upside down and crashed. Call it what you want, I call it happiness. Then they are no longer a threat to me or others on the road. Kepp crashing green plates and dont come back.

This is normal in the rain in Phuket, imagine if the rain carries on through Songkram with all the drunk drivers! Is this really news we know this is one of the highest death rates in the world on the roads.

On Phuket, Patong will get wet tonight and the rest of the island will join in tomorrow, just for one day. It has always been that way.

That naughty rain seems to trip up Thai drivers all the time

@ Mr Herbert, thank you for your information. Well, to be on the safe side tonight and tomorrow,..just stay home, duck in and don't drive Phuket roads. Songkran celebration on Phuket is just 1.5 day. Have your stock at home and relax.

Gotta agree, great to see taxis upside down in a gully. I see a delivery truck as well, another notorious branch of idiots on the road. With wet pavement and the same driving ignorance used in dry weather, we will likely see some more wreckage, and hopefully no fatalities at the hands of taxis/tuktuks.

Advocating violence and wishing ill on people you don't like doesn't get anyone anywhere, Ed. Try adding value in the new year.
@ ed and ed saunders, green plate taxis should be required to mount their number plates upside down. Then it is easier to read them, when they are on their roof in a ditch.

@Annon, so you're happy to see people injured or dead - taxi drivers, passengers, innocent passers-by? Wow, what a quality human being you are.
