Hat Yai Driving Tips

Always be vigilant as some locals do not adhere fully to the rules of the road. For example, it is not uncommon for drivers who have missed a motorway exit to reverse back into oncoming traffic rather than proceeding to the next exit.

Traffic drives on the left, same as UK. Roads are in general in good condition, but with heavy traffic, potholes can be a problem. Be cautious of motorbikes while driving and when opening doors. 

Braking and Speed

It is important to drive within the speed limits and to keep the correct distance from the car in front. This should enable you to deal with a car in front suddenly coming to a halt. This can happen because of an accident or a driver that simply disregards the driving conventions that we take for granted. 

For example, when two roads merge into one, It is not uncommon for a driver to stop at the point of merger and tun left into the new lane of traffic. Picture the scenario, you are driving along at 80 km's per hour keeping your distance from the car ahead, and you also see that the road ahead is all clear. In this scenario, would you expect the car in front of you to come to a sudden halt ?  The answer should be no, but if two roads are about to merge, it can and does happen. The driver ahead is stopping, so he or she can illegally cut across the merging lane
