It really can be a problem if you are being rushed to the hospital and then find it was probably quicker to walk if you’re stuck in traffic. No, I wasn’t in any sort of trouble, but this traffic issue problem for ambulances got me thinking about general health issues here in Thailand. Statistics are showing that 20% of ambulance patients are dying in transit due to not getting the right of way on the roads.
