Video: Renting a motorbike in Pattaya? Watch this first.....

Recommended Posts

Majority seem to be excessive speeding or running red lights.

 

Is your life that important that you can't slow down and get where you are going a minute or two later.

It has always amazed me how motorcycle riders can look directly at on coming traffic and wait until the traffic is close then dart in front of it. Dad, Mom and two kids on a motorcycle and make a u-turn without looking for traffic is another unbelievable problem.

Most of these accidents were easily preventable... No one was driving defensively... Reaction times were absolutely shockingly slow... The silver car drove slowly several more meters with motorbike and people underneath them! Just awful driving all around. They got more money now.. To buy thier very own car or truck or motorcycle... but they have zero clue as how to safely drive the vehicle!

We don't have to pay attention. We've been blessed. Cannot have accident! We are in a hurry and busy texting. We are also lacking in the brain department. And we just don't care.

Speeding, risk taking, u-turns blocking vision and just lack of forward thinking !!

Stay safe out there ( if at all possible !)

I suspect (though we cant see) there where U turners in the furthest right hand lane so the car driver unfortunately for the bikers  chose the other way...but no sign of any attempt to apply breaks !!!!

just plowed straight into them...must have hurt a bit !!!

Quite a few of those accidents are the fault of motorbike drivers who are just plain dumb and as a motorbike drivers should be more careful, hence the accidents were easily preventable on their part.

 

The one @3.00 is truly shocking the motorbike passengers flew up in the air a long way from the accident itself. That should be a warning to all.

 

After seeing the original post  I've banned my wife from driving a motorbike in CM. She's only allowed to drive in the village from now on ??
