Driving back to Bangkok after a quick trip to the Village to inspect the house project, we came up to this truck on a divided section of highway 24. I passed my camera, which travels on my lap [for reasons I will explain one day], to Na who made a series of shots as I performed the overtaking procedure.
Over-loaded small trucks are a common driving hazard, and are involved in or cause many accidents. Despite this, the road police seem to be very lenient about this stretching of road law. These loads are top-heavy and often unstable...they can cause the truck to lurch about the road like a drunken cyclist, especially if there is a side wind.
The transporting of bales of hay about the place is a bit of a logistical mystery to me...we pass trucks engaged in this activity, moving hay towards Bangkok and away from Bangkok...what is the purpose of this "vacationing" hay?
