In defence of remorks

Dear Editor,

I was so surprised to read about the opinions of the Governor of Phnom Penh, Chea

Sophara, concerning the 'remork' (PPP Oct. 12- 25, 2001).

It seems to me one of the better developments for Phnom Penh, where the hundreds

of overladen motorbikes are a recipe for disaster. How nice to be able to ride around

town in the same vehicle as your friends/family in reasonable comfort, and have shelter

from the sun and the downpours of recent weeks.

I grew up in Thailand where remork type vehicles are used in all towns and villages

and are allowed in Bangkok. Roll on the day when we have a better public transport

system in our capital city!

- Mrs Barbara Soung, Prey Veng
