AsianDong: Wow, there are survivors! These flimsy mini vans are frequently used as minibuses in 3rd world countries, especially in Southeast Asia. This one is in Thailand, obviously. I have used them in Malaysia before, and they are scary. The drivers seem to be high on something, drive at reckless speeds, passengers squished in like sardines, no seatbelts, no airbags, and they frequently get into high speed wrecks. It is not uncommon to see 13, 15 people killed instantly upon impact. Poor passengers have no choice, as these are the only mode of transport available. Don't get into one if you value your life. Take a cab instead.
This is a true fact! the taxi is a hell of a lot safer!!
