Quick heads up anyone contemplating a road trip anytime soon ..

DM just back from Korat having traveled there safely n swiftly on Boxing day morning.

Here are a few observations in no specific order.

Tiz the season to be jolly and giving .... obviously not GIVING way on the roads, traffic heading North on the Mittrapab road is getting thick and thicker by the day , lots of the anual pick ups laden with motorbikes , fridges washing machine , fans with the family hanging on on top.. way more HGVs on the road and truck after truck carrying foam boxes im guessing full of food stocks for restaurants etc.

Saw quite a few vehicle off road incidents large trucks n delivery vans in the bushes and central reservation oh and a couple of fresh RTAs .. it seems people traveling home are in such a rush weaving dangerously from lane to lane and undertaking .. it was like Wacky Races between Korat n KK especially.

Good news ... all the road work lane restrictions and contraflows have been removed between UD-KK plain sailing .. many traffic light intersections are thru traffic only with U turns closed off as well in anticipation of the chaos to follow starting tomorrow till the NY...LOTS OF POLICE CHECK POINTS BEING SET UP

Khao Yai to Ud .. 4 hrs 45 mins .. alas you can probably double that plus a bit more in the coming days.

Heading South should be fine until next week

Can you remember the drivers in the Wacky Races ?????? Loved the show... some great characters , i could not recall all of them until i got the 1968 YT Vid

great memories .. i was 3 yrs old in 1968 in the prime of my cartoon watching years

Certainly seems like DM dodged a bullet traveling back yesterday as confirmed by bith the TV reports and friends in Khao Yai traffic now nose to tail.solid from.Bkk to isaan on the Mittrapab highway.

As info going South is also.conjested as some lanes given up.fir Nort bound traffic.

If you choose to travel...stay alert n eep safe

drink driving with "probation?" No apprehension, Blood Alcohol Test (BAT) and down to the hoosegow if over the limit to sit overnight, see the judge in the morning and pay a hefty fine along with points on their license? Then probation....

Pretty sure the DUI route below has been running for years its the new higher fines points and possible imprisonment that have been added to.stiffen up.the exsisting penalties.

Nabbed ..go.police station
AGO
Court
Fine plus probation - communtity service including blood donations option

One needs to be careful with that "blood letting" get-out-of-jail card. If you donate too much blood, you will get pished quicker and be nabbed again.

In no.way condoning drink driving but reading numerous articles re the drink driving figures for this year 22-23 seeing a 90.plus % increase in the same period last year and it made me think surely these two.numbers cannot be tied together as the NY 21 - 22 was during covid and interprovincial.ttravel was for the most part discouraged and cancelled by the government with thousands less ppl.travelling..thus giving a lower false making this years NY seem very bad statstically.

Watching the news seeing some crazy driving resulting in multiple pile ups .. Roi-et province takes the honours for the highest nember of duis .. followed by Nontaburi then Bkk.

The Courts rammed and probation offices are gonna be very busy also .. rehabilating all.the nabbed offenders.
