Security guard nearly gets hit after jumping out to stop traffic - then gives motorist an earful!

Dash cam footage from Bangkok caused widespread comment after a condo security guard jumped out holding a red flag to stop traffic and allow a car to exit. 

 

The driver of the car - Sirirach Khemasiri - just braked in time so as not to hit the security guard. He commented on a video he posted to Facebook that he was lucky not to be rear ended too. 

 

He can be heard telling the young security guard politely that he should wait for an appropriate break in the traffic.

 

Later he told Daily News Online that as he was stopped at the lights a little further on the security guard and a colleague displayed aggressive and angry behavior behind him. 

 

The incident happened on Nikom Makkasan road heading for Pratunam on Monday afternoon. 

 

Thaivisa notes that many Bangkok residents complain about security guards being a law unto themselves when it comes to whistling and using red flags to stop traffic. In some places bored motorcycle taxi drivers even take it upon themselves to direct traffic.

Near me south of Khonkaen a new machinery sales place opened, On the first week of opening they had a guy doing exactly the same thing on the busy Mittrapat rd I nearly came of my bike due to the idiot and all to let a car out, No sign of the security guy for months he was either ran over or stopped from doing it.

Well the security signaled 5 meters too late in front of a speeding car,....... IMO the security f****ed up big time..... as the car was already in the process of speeding. Bad judgment of that nifty security fella here......

What's the fuss About?

 

It happens every day. Sometimes I can be the only car coming and the security guard will jump in front of me to stop me and allow another car out.

Some security guards here do take themselves way too seriously. I remember walking along the pavement in front of an apartment and I was suddenly stopped by one. A bit confused as to why I was stopped, I looked at him and then looked back. I saw a car approaching and indicating to turn in. I just brushed him aside and kept walking. There was plenty of time for me to walk out of the way, and even if there wasn't, I'm the one walking on the pavement, the car can wait 'til it's clear of pedestrians.
