Precautions for Driving in Thailand

Last Updated: January 08,2020

Following are some things you have to consider while driving in Thailand.

Always try to drive on the left side. Drive defensively, because of aggressive behavior of the taxi drivers in Thailand. Many of the bike riders avoid the traffic rules in Thailand. Poor conditions of the roads is a major cause of accidents in Thailand. The Thai government is trying to improve the condition of the roads. 

If you have witnessed an accident in Thailand, what is better for you to do. If you have stuck in such kind of condition, just call the Thai police by dialing 191 or 1155. You can call 1155 for English-speaking assistance. And report an accident report at the local police station. 

Infrastructure of Thailand

You can find aa better quality of road in cities. All the major cities in Mexico are joined to the highway with the wide free-ways. Speed limit while driving on highways in Thailand is from 100 km/h to 120 km/h. Speed range depends on the condition of the road. You can find the notice of “reduce your speed limit” at different places along the road while driving in Thailand, but they haven't mentioned the speed limit there to restrict the drivers in the different area of Thailand. Speeding is a major reason behind the road accidents in Thailand. Construction on the roads for improvement is being done, but diversions are not mentioned at under-construction roads that are confusing the drivers. Time from 6:00 am to 9:00 am are the busiest time in the morning and similarly, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, you can get more rush on the roads in Thailand. 

If you are unaware of the Thai language, then driving in Thailand can be difficult for you. It is because you can get some roadside instructions written in a local language, which you can't understand.
