The number one cause of death for visitors to Thailand is '''motorbike accidents''', especially on the often narrow, mountainous and twisty roads of [[Phuket]] and [[Samui]]. Drive defensively, wear a helmet, don't drink and avoid travel at night. If you don't have experience of riding motorcycles, don't rent a motorbike in Thailand, unless you want to risk ending up as another statistic. Riding a motorcycle through Bangkok traffic can be '''very''' dangerous indeed, Thai motorists can be very unpredictable at best, and downright dangerous at other times.
However, it would be better if you used your common sense to get away from trouble and took the usual precautions. 191 is the emergency number in Thailand which can help you if you find yourself in danger.
If someone is trying to provoke you into starting a fight, '''always''' walk away. Or you could find yourself staying in Thailand for much longer than you anticipated.
