Car Crash Kills 7 In Prachuap Khiri Khan

Yes car drivers here first reaction is to swerve rather than pump the brakes to avoid swerving or fish tailing...

 

if you swerve and then the brakes, high probability of lost vehicle control and Crossing over other lanes or running into trees or power poles....

 

would had been better to hit the car ahead as both were traveling the same direction and semi would have had better chance of control (breaking) and avoided oncoming traffic...

hit the vehicle ahead, speed difference and impact might only be 30/40 kph ,  head-on impact speed could be double that or more.

So rather than rear ending the pick up truck that lost control, he opted to hit the income SUV vehicule... what an idiot!

He should have bumped the pick up truck out of the way and be on his merry way! Poor sense of judgement on a critical moment.

Seen it so many times, even close to home, they always swerve and never brake straight, which causes unnecessary loss of innocent lives .

you never brake straight, you alway try to avoid whats in front off you, thats your first reaction..

Early morning, still sleepy and talking to his wife or some other distraction.

Of course, the story could be made up, and just lost control, nothing to avoid.

No matter what! Thailand still remains on top of the statistics when it comes to road carnage! Obviously the good general, his bag man (Sutep) and his illegal government do not care so long as the corruption monies roll in! (check the audits on his and the "watch" man's wealth). Those lower in the food chain still rake in their share and too <deleted>#& with the rest of us!

 

Thaskin was a saint as compared with this lot!

 

This BS will never end!

Thai driving lessons? Where? 99/44% of Thai drivers learn on-the-job. Most don't have a clue what the ABS is designed for. Swerving to avoid crashing into vehicle in front results in changing lane position, meeting on-coming vehicles at an angle or meeting local flora.

I think everybody agrees here the Thai driving standard is poor and the police are just as poor It just will go on and on

As Thailand seems unable to tackle the issue, should they not get some consultants or experts from abroad to assess the flaws within the context ?

 

How many more deaths, before any (honest) action is taken, other then  with Police Road Blocks having the sole goal to harass or extort money from foreigners.
