I've mentioned before how riding a motorcycle can be pretty hazardous here in Thailand. Certainly a lot of the danger is the result of the motor cyclist themselves, weaving in and out of traffic; darting in and out of blind spots to get to their destination a few minutes earlier.
When I was driving to the IT Mall today, there was a bit of a traffic backup on Chaeng Wattana. That's not particularly unusual, although at midday traffic is usually fairly light. There was a policeman standing in the center lane, waving people to go to the left and right of him. Immediately behind him was the body of a motor cyclist lying dead on the road. The wreckage had already been cleared away, but they body remained were it had fallen; waiting for the morgue to arrive.
It struck me in a weird way. They didn't even close the lane off for this man's death; just a policeman waving traffic around in order to miss his corpse.
