The dangers of riding (or driving) in South East Asia
But be careful taking it for granted .... it can suddenly change. Although I must say the road-workers are much quicker and better with putting up signs in case there is a problem with the road.
But suddenly the road might end up like the second photo. And then you are still lucky because .... there is a road!
And you might find yourself in a situation like this .... but then still riding!
Road conditions are 1 of the reasons not to drive/ride in the dark. But also in day-time you should be aware of the fact that road conditions can change suddenly (and not for the better) and sometimes totally without any warning. Well, a warning could be a branch of a tree on the street. If it is old and dry there is probably nothing going on ..... if it is fresh and green there could be a recent landslide or accident.
Drive & ride safe!
