Pavement parking is causing a problem in Vientiane

As the population get richer and people drive more cars, they obviously need to park somewhere and the lack of parking spaces in Vientiane are making drivers park on the pavement.

This causes a two way street to become narrow and turn into one road, and drivers must effectively drive in the middle of the road over the white markings and give way or slow down to oncoming cars in what is meant to be a two way street.

Pedestrians can't even walk on the side of the road either, and have to step onto the road.

Good theory. Perhaps those pictures were taken from dry season. Lack of rain during dry season would have hindered soil stability and enhanced wind blown erosion on the non-vegetative landscape in and around metropolis Vientiane. Evidence of somewhat thick layer of dirt on the black car is an indication that the owner of the black car resided on the barren landscape.

It won't be like China. Laos is just way too small..in surface area and population. Anyway there are still more cars in one large province of Thailand than all of Laos probably.

Catastrophic air pollution problem in cities in China is mainly caused by the direct results of too many of the population burning coal for cooking and heating.  Major cities in China are built on lowland basins with highland plateaus surrounding lowland basins. Therefore there is limited air flow to push the coal induced smog away from these cities because the highland plateaus restrict the air flow over these cities.

Sounds kind of like Chiang Mai, Thailand. It's in a valley surrounded by mountains, which are inhabited by ethnic minorities who practice slash and burn farming. The smoke gets trapped in the valley and Chiang Mai gets filled with smog after the farming season. I thought the pollution in China was from rapid industrialization and factories, though.

The problem with developing countries like China and Thailand is their ignorance of environmental concerns and lack of environmental regulations. I am sure most motorbikes, cars and trucks over in China and Thailand use mainly diesel and without set emission regulations. People slash and burning, bad emissions from vehiclse, coal burning, factory emissions not following emission standards (or lack thereof) will create a smog filled sky. This is just a phase during the development process of any society where land, river and sky make sacrifices.

Thailand is actually rather progressive and banned most motorcycles that use carburetor fuel systems. If you look at the new Honda Waves and even the automatic scooters they all use fuel-injection now.

China men are ignorant to environmental issues from rapid development. They even built cities with high rises and what not and do not have any China men living in. Their development looks good on paper that they are developed but does not look good if no one is living in them.
