VIDEO: Speeding Thai minivan driver rages at foreign tourist who told him to slow down

Recommended Posts

If I asked a taxi driver to slow down in my country they would tend to listen. If they didn't I would be able to contact the company or the police and action would be taken. Fat chance over here, just a torrent of abuse

“If you are scared of dying, why don’t you get off?”, the diver said.

 

“Thai people don't worry, why you scared?”, he added.

Says it all!

For a country of people who don't like to lose face, it's almost a national past time.

I wonder if they really know what foreigners think of them?? 

They know,  but it's a misunderstanding.

Typical Thaivisa member's comment.  They didn't.

Typical head into the sand comment, or rose colored glasses comment. You choose what it fits best...

People commenting on social media heavily criticised the driver and said the Department of Land Transport needs to do more about rogue minivan drivers.

There is more chance of seeing a flock of flying pigs.  I seem to remember that there has already a suggestion to take these minivans off the roads, but until the authorities learn the expression " Actions speak louder than words " then these dangerous minivan drivers will be free to carry on killing and injuring hundreds of people every year.

But that wasn’t all. Many of the Thai passengers also complained the driver was rude, bad mannered and had they had been overcharged 150 baht for the journey.

...but never complained so much about the dangerous driving and risk of death?

 

Hence my unsympathetic post in another, minivan related tragedy thread. The locals make they're travel choices solely based on budget and expediency... and every time they get out of a minivan unscathed, they make the little invisible inner wai to whatever deity they reckoned was looking out for them, carefully note the minivans rego number to share the last 2 or 3 digits with their fellow, bi-monthly, good luck hunters.

It is these fools who kill people... Ultimately they are murderers...

 

This guy needs to be taken off the road immediately. 

 

I fear the DLT will save face by giving him a small fine, he will give an apology and go back to trying to kill people with his dangerous and careless driving - no one will learn, the consequences will continue to be so insignificant the incentive for improved safety will continue to be absent.

Others said the footage will ruin the image of Thailand, particularly among tourists.

Arrest the tourist, and press charge to Sanook for reporting the news!
