Farmer learns not to drive in wrong lane

A middle-aged farmer in Phnom Penh found out yesterday that driving on the wrong side of the street has its consequences.

The man was tooling down the left lane when he saw a container truck barrelling towards him, and his attempts to veer rightward were thwarted by a median.

As the rider was still trying to bear right, a tuk-tuk appeared travelling in the opposite direction and slammed into him head-on.

Despite technically being at fault, the victim was paid $70 by the tuk-tuk driver and sent to hospital.
