Video: New Zealander collides with Thai motorcyclist going the wrong way on bridge in Rayong

Recommended Posts

Oh don't worry the Thai family will soon be at the police station expecting compensation for the dead idiot.  story coming soon.

Should we guess 500,000 baht as a starting point.

Strangely, you may not be far wrong...

Not your fault,but all your fault for being in Thailand.if you not in Thailand  my husband brother be still alive.just as well the dash cam was they to show the accident.they will  be knocking on your door for money soon enough.he was wearing a helmet at lest

 

So you are blaming farangs when Thais are one of the worst afar as driving skills or lack thereof?  I would suggest that natives learn how to drive a d if not, stay off the roads.

Yes the Thai rider bang to rights so to speak but I was also thinking why the Kiwi did not switch to the centre lane to avoid collision he seemed to have plenty of time? (the Thai probably had G-LOC at this point and knew his last moments had arrived)

LEARN  HOW  TO DRIVE Thais...that is all.  Your incompetence at driving has lead  to far more deaths than farangs.  Stay off  the roads if  you can't adhere to basic road driving abilities.   And if- because of  your   lack of driving ability you  cause an accident, then your license should be suspended. Simple.

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

Yes I agree, he is not legally at fault but in the circumstances he showed very slow reactions. He could easily  have moved over especially when he could have been killed or seriously injured himself. If it were me Im sure it would have been instinctive to get out of the way of the bike. The only mitigating circumstance would be if a vehicle was blasting up behind him to imminently undertake next to him. Or...maybe his attention was elsewhere?

And yes.. time for Thai police to enforce infractions- both native and foreigner. Get off your butts and do so.

TiT. Forever ignoring road rules and common sense.

Exactly...stop concentrating on  those whose Visas may expired  and pay attention to all  the unnecesary deaths.

Thai Rath said that he was trying to save time by going the wrong way. 

The employee told Thai Roth that he was trying to save time after accident !!! 

I don’t think that it was about saving time. It was just one of those creative riders on suicide mission. Many of them think death is only for others. We all see on roads everyday.

Might well ask why the New Zealander was in the outside lane of a 3 lane road, when the middle lane was clear, and the vehicle in the inside lane appears to be going faster than him. 

Ask that question of a typical Thai driver first - heaps hang out in the overtaking lane.

And I'm surprised that Chinese tourists would want to go to Thailand considering all the deaths.  Is there no warning amongst the Chinese?
