Kids racing motorcycles don't justify killing them.

Well at least the motorbike gang came off worse. When I listen to teenagers racing up down my village at one o'clock in the morning I often find my thinking turning lethal.

Amazing ? No par for the course that's Thailand. Up Country you don't see a Policeman on the streets after dark or if it's raining or at weekends.

Will these be counted as road deaths for the 7 Dangerous Days?
