So the family will not pursue it further... Right! But the NZ should! What about damages to his car, and the psychological factor of having killed someone, even if it's not his fault in any way.. The family should be happy if the NZ don't pursue it further! Sad for them to have lost a family member, but it was to his own stupidity. *If* the motorbike had insurance, it should take care of it, but if not (and thats not unlikely) the family should pay up. Good luck with that though!

The motocyclist is to be blamed for his own death. But seriously, he's dead, he paid the ultimate price for his stupidity. It's a tragedy for his family. Only a real d**k would want compensation from the dead person's family.

However, the Kiwi was driving in the 'fast' lane with a clear 'middle' lane, he had just overtaken the light coloured pick-up. Why didn't he move over. He had 4 or 5 seconds to take evasive action

Why should he move over. The idiot on the bike got what he deserved. No sympathy from me.

He might have gotten away with it if his headlight had been working - it is still stupidity beyond belief 

 

Driving the wrong way on a major road is a serious offence back home - the reasons are obvious to most

 

RIP

I'm surprised the victim even made it to 40 years old. Like they say, there are old bikers and bold (or stupid) bikers, but not many old and bold (or stupid ones). Can believe they bike wasn't even hugging the shoulder of the road to at least reduce the chance of an accident. Darwin can chalk up another one.

How do those idiots survive such a long time until they can drive (?) a vehicle.

I would think they killed themselves much earlier : falling out of a tree, drowning in a shallow pond , falling off the back of a motorcycle, eating poison, be run over by the uncle ,

.......it seems Buddha is really taking care of the most stupid ?

The guy in the video : was wearing a helmet ....this proves a helmet can not save your life ,if there is no active brain inside it.

Another life lost due to stupidity, the motorcyclist was 100% at fault.

What was he doing riding in the fast lane against oncoming traffic?

The dead mans family are not pursuing the case, it would be pointless anyway.

Probably would not be pointless. Blame is not an issue when a farang is involved. If the NZ guy was not in Thailand, it would not have happened!.   No doubt the police will extract money somehow!

This movie should be on the thai news every day again....too many idiots drive against traffic...Thailand only...

I drove 300+ km on what I think is one of Thailand dangerous roads on Sunday, route 212 we had over 50 mortorbikes coming towards us on the wrong side of the road, sometimes difficult to avoid them, many fid not have any lights, none had helmets, some were clearly underage, nobody followed yhe speed limits.  Police ??????? 555

Drive along any road in Pattaya, at any time of the the day and you'll see several motorbikes doing the same. They know they're doing wrong, it's just laziness, they can't be bother to ride a few hundred yards to do a u-turn. Even on the proper side of the road, if they can find a small gap in the central reservation, they'll use that instead of the official u-turn. They're beggars for short cuts, they'll risk getting covered in mud and smeg rather than go the long way round.

I don't like to see any young person getting killed, but this guy was playing Russian roulette. His family and the car driver are the ones I feel for mostly.

But he was being undertaken by that black car right before the crash. If I had a car undertaking me on the left, no matter if it was in first or second lane I would wait for it to pass before changing my lane.. Just in case, and my focus would be partly in the mirrors. Anyway it also take a moment to realize that the motorbike is actually driving towards you, and not in the same direction as you.

I'm not saying the bike was in the right, but the Kiwi seemed to be traveling pretty fast and could see the motorcycle for quite some time. He should have seen him coming, slowed down and moved over. Again the bike was in the wrong, but I think enough time was available for evasive action to have been taken..

First of all R.I.P to a fellow biker.

I don't know whether this is pure laziness on the part of Thai's,but this behavior can be witnessed throughout the kingdom.They behave as if they're in a real hurry,like the worlds coming to an end today.

Feel sorry for the New Zealander he must be in a right state.

KIWI should not have been in the outside lane.  If he was undertaken by a car in the inner lane, that is where he should have been long before the accidemt.  A typical outside lane hogger -you see it all the time -especially up here in Isaan.  That however does not take away the sheer stupidity of the motorcyclist
