And the disparity between the “haves” and the “have nots” is in sharp focus in connection with the annual carnage on the nation’s roads. In the latest in a series, an article entitled “Thailand’s roads are deadly. Especially if you are poor” looks at the mayhem on the kingdom’s roads and the consequences. It states that Thailand is the second most deadly place on earth to drive in and the worst place on the planet for motorcycle accidents. But the rich often walk free from responsibility and the poor are suffering.

The story was posted online yesterday. Hannah Beech, the author of the story, has been the NYT Southeast Asia bureau chief since 2017, based in Bangkok.
