Pedestrian flyover considered after student killed while crossing road

Relevant authorities are planning to build a pedestrian flyover in front of a college in Nakhon Pathom province after a motorcycle fatally hit a 15-year-old student while she was crossing the road.
 

Hataipat Tantasirin was hit while she was walking across the zebra crossing to the College of Dramatic Arts Salaya on January 22. She succumbed to her injuries on February 8.

 

Though badly affected by the loss of her daughter, Neungrutai said she was glad that the authorities are finally paying attention to the safety of people who have to cross roads. 

 

“If a pedestrian flyover is really built at that spot, at least my daughter’s death with not be in vain,” she said, adding that she will take legal action against the motorcyclist right to the end. 

 

Hataipat’s seven-day funeral ceremony will be held at Lao Temple in Bangkok’s Bang Khunthien and she will be cremated on February 17.

"If" this was my child that was killed, I would be storming the inept police...the supervisors (just as inept), and higher-ups. This HAS to stop!. Pay attention Thailand...you are being watched:)

well in that case, flyovers are necessary in towns all over Thailand as the reckless and careless drivers (provided they are Thai and not farang of course) are all over and fear at most, say a 2000 THB fine if they kill anybody ...

Fly-overs are necessary? And how did the "fly-overs" avert this tragedy? Pathetic....people losing their lives and a wai as well as a "pittance" of compensation. Again...."if" this was your child, would you simply accept the "oh well"?

So does Thailand accept the loss of life as "oh well"?. if so, then more reason to never park my butt in that country.

It should not matter whether a taxi driver hit the child...the point is that Thais have no <deleted> driving skills and should not be driving- whether a car or moped. And even more so, "if" I hit someone and unfortunately killed them, i would be seriously affected. Thais? Nope...just go on with your regular activities. And that is what I'm saying. WHY are Thais oblivious to harm? Empathy......"if" it happened to the Thais that are so insensitive to these tragedies- in other words..."if" a family member was maimed or killed, would they feel differently?

 

I know a couple Thai natives that I occasionally speak with and I get the sense that their "empathy" is non-existent. And there-in lies the issue:)

made the road larger in front of the school, 8 lines instead of the usual 4 and place some red marks on the road with write slow down, do not paint any pedestrian crossing lines and let some monkey brained idiots drive 2 tons pick ups after watching a 5 hours video... This is how you will have a safe road and Thailand 4.1 it's done!
