Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

If you stay in a private apartment via Airbnb or the likes are you covered by insurance if you get hurt in the property, I can bet most have no public liability insurance so the risk is all on you.
Use a formal property that has all the correct insurances and licences.

Re: Electric Cars

It is countries like China, Qatar and UAE that will drive change, not western countries which have so many steps to follow and hoops to jump through to get anything done. The mentioned countries leaders simply tell the government to do it and it is done.

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Airbnb is banned in many cities; New York, Reykjavic, Amsterdam, Paris, New Orleans, Santa Monica, Ibiza, Berlin to name a few. Main reason is no payment of government taxes, no business license's, pricing local people out of the rental market.

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Agreed but this is because Ting Tong Land still relies on staff who speak little English and use bits of paper to record orders, often only writing it down after they have delivered the order.
If they wont develop it is their loss if they undercharge.

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

Does Thailand utilize the European Tachograph or something similar to track driver and vehicle usage? I seem to recall in some cases the police had identified speeding prior to an accident so maybe they have something in place.

Lithium car batteries can be successfully recycled. Tesla has been sending used batteries to Toxco in the US for years.

Toyota also recycle
