I'm afraid I don't know what PTT stands for, but if the newspapers are anything to do with TV news, then I guess their main topic is noodles, tofu, scams, fights and whatever bullshit VIP's do. I'll however give you that, I haven't read newspapers, so my opinion is heavily based on online translated media, and bullshit news on tv.
That's, at least, weird. But when I discuss with a local about something REALLY RECKLESS we just saw on the road, they don't seem to be worried about that. Even more, sometimes I'm told that I do the same (and I can tell you, I don't: I try to not cut anybody's way on the road, which is a natural behaviour here).
