TIT in Action
« on: July 03, 2018, 08:42:39 AM »

TIT short for This is Thailand is often used to attempt to explain something which is seeming unexplainable. 


Here is one story:  Last week I was returning from the store used the turn lane to make a right into Ban Yang only for find it permanently blocked.  No explanation has been forthcoming for the blockage and IMHO is dangerous as people now go to the end the medium and U turn (no separate turn lane) or use the street before the medium which is barely two vehicles in width.


As mentioned, no explanation has been provided yet.  To make it worse this turn is main avenue to get to other villages such as Haui Rat and Ban Khok Lek.

Brilliant !! TIT at it's best! As you say, an important juction feeding several villages and communities out there in the sticks. We use it every time we go to the city from our place near Muang Pho. It was only fairly recently they built a dedicated turn lane, and that made the juction a lot safer imho, as it was always an accident waiting to happen. What about the roadside rescue car that sits at the junction? Effectively cut off!!
Even with the turn lane it was still a dangerous junction, but forcing people to make U turns is not the solution.

The village had a lot of complaints and a planned protest this morning.  Looks like it worked as they are removing the barriers as I post this.

That's good news. Now it is the authorities that are making the U turn, not the motorists!
Crazy desision to block the junction in the first place. I cant think what it's closing was supposed to achieve?
TIT.
