Lights out for Phnom Penh’s worst driver

In the age old battle between capital drivers and roadside barriers, barriers on Monireth Boulevard chalked up an impressive victory on Wednesday evening.

A Toyota Camry was careening down the street, when the driver lost control of his vehicle, colliding with an electricity pole.

The vehicle then careened off the pole, skidding onto the top of the barricades, before flipping upside-down.

The driver managed to extricate himself from the wreckage and fled before the police arrived to impound the car.

The driving situation in Phnom Penh is quite frankly ludicrous and lethal. The countless times I have seen drivers either drunk and/or on their mobile phones while in charge of a vehicle is unbelievable!

Just think of this - The traffic law in this country is crazy! You are allowed to drive your motorcycle at night with no lights on yet get stopped and fined for driving during the day with your lights on! No wonder you have so many accidents.
