Accidents happened

A link to two stories from Cambodia Daily (18-01-2007) on the KI site.

"All these people were on motorcycles without safety helmets and speeding," he (deputy municipal traffic police chief) said. "Driving at high speed causes death."

Thanx for the information. But in at least 1 case the deceased was a passenger on a moto which got hit by a car. No word on how the police are going to treat this hit and run case.

What's more:
  • a. helmets are not compulsory: a sorry nation that cares so little for it's own that they can not make helmet use compulsory (and make the enfocement stick).
  • b. speeding: so if that's the case why isn't law enforcement taking place?
