RIP.

 

again, greedy bike rental shops renting bikes whoever can walk and talk without asking a valid riding permit.

those greedy rental shops claimed and still claiming lives and nothing happens to them!

before, phuket police was made it clear like bike rental shops have to ask a valid riding permit to ride a bike but as Phuket is the land of mafia, nothing happens as usual.

some bike rental shops make their money while some tourists die and they even ask for repairs from the family of the deceased like idiots!

I do not know if your post is just socialist bull**it ...
or the result of assimilation in Thainess and blaming the scooter manufacturer for the high number of people killed on the roads

From the photos, there does not appear to be a HELMET lying nearby unless the rider was taken to hospital still wearing it. RIP

Correct, but witnesses heard the bike "rev" when he arrived to the bend, wich suggest that he overpowered the engine (you can't do this on 50cc scooter) and lost control of the rear wheel.

Let me see. A "witness" makes a statement, which is read and a suggested conclusion is arrived at. Simply amazing that someone far removed from the actual scene, can speculate.

Once again, we have an incident when a farang is totally responsible but the peanut gallery wants to turn it around and blame it on the Thais.

I dont even read the comments sections usually as regards to thais having road accidents because i get annoyed by the racist comments targeting ALL thais and their intellegence levels. 

 

Most thais are safe good drivers. Most Thais dont die in road accidents. 

But when a farang has an accident the posters still turn it around and blame the lovely Thai people who are our hosts and allow us to live hear.  

The number one reason that the road toll is so high is because of the amount of motorbikes which more than 80% of the deaths occur. Another reason is many travel to bangkok and other provinces so times when there are public holidays many of them travel hundreds of kms to visit their loved ones.

 

The following links are all accidents caused by westerners but each thread is full of racist comments towards our hosts.

How about we tone down the racism on thaivisa. People in glass houses. Show some respect. the thais are in the whole, very nice people.

" Most Thais don't die in road accidents."  just 396 over the holidays.

Yes, most on bikes and it looks like they were not all thai either. Nor are all the accidents caused by thais as shown.

Every country has increased increased road tolls over the holiday period due to more people on the roads.

Thailand seems to be an exception. The road tolls are about the same any day of the year.
