Photographer's Note

While waiting for a restaurant to open, we were shooting pictures of the homeward bound traffic.

Motor Scooters and cycles abound in Bangkok, they comprise nearly half of the vehicles on the road. They dart in and out of traffic, terrifying me with a quick appearance nearby. Thankfully I'm not driving. Many of the vehicles carry large loads or more than one passenger. There are even motorcycle taxis. Cycle taxi drivers wear orange vests.

Some bikes carry as many as four passengers: mother, father and 2 children. It is the law that a motor cycle helmet must be worn but this doesn't seem to apply to children.
