The same day I wrote my last post about the total disregard for health and safety in Bangladesh, I got a text from Tom saying he had just witnessed a big road accident.
At a very busy T-junction, with no traffic lights, the policemen on duty had all failed to communicate with each other and had somehow managed to signal all of the traffic forwards in to a three-way collision.
What is more shocking is that the news didn’t suprise or shock me for a second. It’s just typical for Bangladesh.
I used to watch with my housemates ‘America’s Wildest Police Chases’ or something similar every Sunday night. ‘Normal Driving in Bangladesh’ would be an international smash hit follow up (no pun intended).
