As I travel around my adopted hometown of Krungthep, I sometimes see things and think, "Oh, that is so very Thai." These things usually seem innocuous enough at first glance, but I think they illustrate the differences between Thai culture and other cultures. Four-way intersections are a good example.
When I drive in the US (or pretty much any "developed" country), there are rules and laws and signs and to some degree, everyone follows them. Very little is left entirely to human nature and the good will of the drivers.
