I have a suggestion that I think has some merit. I believe that the Bangkok governor candidate who has the fewest of these great big campaign posters that block the view from bus stops should automatically be declared the winner. That person at least shows that he has some regard for the common folk on the street. And at some stops it is virtually impossible to watch for approaching buses without standing on the street.
The deputy governor's position should go to the candidate who has the fewest of those most irritating trucks with great loudspeakers roaming the streets. Are these not illegal in Bangkok? Possibly any candidate who uses these vehicles should be disqualified for breaking the law.
Just some thoughts from someone who uses the buses as a main mode of transport _ a very frustrated bus rider.
