The ‘Jupiler’ tattoo gave it away...

Had to look it up, perhaps too much of a good thing at 6am.

Right!

In recent years they have added guard rails and a center divider along that stretch.

The road is intrinsically dangerous for some because it goes over a hill and then curves to  the right. 

The road is commonly used by revelers leaving the popular Rawai entertainment district. Most serious accidents there seem to involve single vehicles, usually motorbikes, and occur in the early hours.  Speed, alcohol and lack of helmets are often a factor. Some will find a way to come to grief no matter how safe a road is.

A recipe for disaster. Thank you for the information.

And I'm sure he was keeping within the 50kph speed limit indicated - not. He probably thought the sign was there for decoration.

He would have been right.

 

Even Phuket authorities admitted they have put up signs that are incorrect.

This individual had a bank card. I presume that a contact with the bank would provide complete identification. Why all the effort to describe in detail every tattoo on his torso? Did it advertise a local tattoo shop?

About the only things they missed out were the colour of his eyes and hair.

seeing as they know his nationality and have informed his embassy i would assume they know his identity
