Daily News said that a minivan driver was caught playing on his phone all the way from Bangkok to Rayong. 

 

The driver didn't care a jot for the safety of his passengers. 

 

One was filming and posted a clip of two and a half minutes duration. 

 

No one said anything as the driver looked down then up as he sped along the road. 

 

Daily News said this was the latest terrible case and the Department of Land Transport were looking into it.

 

The last one was on February 7th from a woman's minivan experience from Bangkok to Prajuab Khiri Khan. 

 

The company on that occasion was fined 5,000 baht when they could have been stung for 50,000 baht. 

 

It was not reported how much the driver paid - he faced a 5,000 baht fine for negligent driving and a further 5,000 baht for using a phone while driving. 

 

Daily News - who are running campaigns to improve road safety - said that adverse comment was rife online in the latest incident.

…and therein lies the problem, people would rather risk death than speak up. Enjoy your next minivan ride!

Wouldn't it be easy to have compulsory CCTV in every van with Internet connection and recording at a central police station or a TAT center - or tourist police?

(Oh, yes, if they only would)

I totally agree. We see so often comment and videos about people who did something dangerous. But mostly people just look or take pictures or videos. And then, when something happens, people ask: Why did nobody do anything?

Two went past me swerving violently from lane to lane; inside and out.  Their speed was greatly in excess of the 80 limit.  I watched their antics as this behaviour continued into the distance.  The police car next to me did not seem to find anything untoward about their dangerous driving/speeding.

Why did nobody do anything?

Because the driver would lose face.

And is that reason enough to ignore his dangerous behavior?

 

Oh, sorry, we had this terrible accident. I saw it coming because the driver didn't watch the road. But I didn't want to ask him because he would lose face...

Sometimes the result could be the same. Best to not use their sevices, as many  of them are morons.

Well mate sadly Thais will not speak up if there is a possibility someone will lose face.

As i have posted before Thais will commit murder before they will lose face.

Many of them do this, on the phone the entire trip, if everyone complained it would stop overnight but they are  happier to just laugh at you if  you are the only  one complaining, go home  whitey is probably what they think
