My first holiday in several years is near. How does the thrill of navigating through the vibrant, chaotic streets of Thailand compare with the experience of driving along the peaceful, familiar roads of British Columbia? Thailand’s driving conditions are notably more perilous than many of its Asian counterparts. But this piece of information was merely the beginning of a deeper inquiry – How do there perila match my quiet Canada?

In my search for answers, I stumbled upon an eye-opening source: the WORLD POPULATION REVIEW. The data was stark and sobering.

In Thailand, the risk stands at 30.7 deaths per 100,000 people per year. In contrast, Canada presents a significantly lower figure – just 5.8 deaths per 100,000 people per year. To put this into perspective, the increase in risk of death when venturing from the safety of Canada to the dynamic roads of Thailand is a staggering 429.3%! This statistic paints a vivid picture: the risk of meeting one’s end on Thai roads is more than four times higher than in Canada.


This revelation serves as a stark reminder of the hidden dangers that can lurk on foreign roads. It’s a call to all travelers to tread with caution and respect the roads, no matter how familiar or foreign they may be. Drive safely, wherever your adventures may take you!
