'Mai pen rai' on our roads means death

- +

Last weekend, I was stuck on Kanchanaphisek western ring road in the Bang Bua Thong area for almost an hour without knowing why the traffic was so terrible. 

It was about 11am and the sun was very strong. I was very frustrated with this unexpected situation and saw drivers close to me were also annoyed at having to wait in the gridlocked line of cars. Finally, I was able to move a little bit further ahead until I passed the scene of an accident.

On the road was a huge pile of ceramic tiles. Nearby was a pickup truck with a blown tyre. Police and Pathum Thani rescue staff were trying to clear the mess from the road so the traffic could flow.
