Recommended Posts

Whether the farang was in the right to late it seems.he will be to blame for everything.take u for everything you got.other way round you would get nothing but grief if the Thais were at fault.

If the car driver was making the U-turn from the left lane, car drivers fault if it was from the right lane the motorcycle drivers fault. Not enough information in the story to really know.

There was an article on TV a couple days ago from a Auto Insurance company and if I remember correctly.

 

Article said if you rearend someone your at fault. Basically

you should stay within a safe distance from car in front.

 

Same in US and unless you hit the rear quarter panel (not square hit) you might be able to show you weren’t in error. 

 

Were their any witnesss that can help your case?

 

Good luck!

you can have as many perhapses as you like - none of them are facts, and your educated guesses are based on what exact training, qualifications or education, how many RTA's have you attended or investigated 

My educated guesses are based on fact that many bikes ride around with no headlights on, because it cost money to fix, and just as many ride with baskets attached to the front, right under the headlights, and once anything is in the basket, headlights are totally blacked out.

 

Now please share where and how  you gained your extensive knowledge on bikes riding at night in Thailand

still blaming the Thai ?????????

 

sorry my friend but if the car suddenly pulled across in front of the bike - there is simply no excuse for that, now if all bike riders want to avoid accidents - then yes they should be extra careful of idiots pulling out in front of them - doesn't mean they are at fault or to blame  

Not sure of the full and accurate facts regarding this accident. Though could the police be taking into account the statement from a very senior Thai policeman a number of years ago. He stated that in the event of a vehicle being hit from behind, it should be considered a 50/50 blame. 

  While in the U.K the police would initially judge the driver of the vehicle that hit the rear of the other vehicle, to be at fault, or at least in 99% of cases.

Reading the posts here have forced me to revise my view that most farangs are good drivers, particularly all those comments that the bike might have been following too closely. The bike hit the car on the right side, towards the rear. This means that the car had already started the turn. The critical question therefore is where on the road the accident occurred. In the direction of travel or in the oncoming lane. If the latter, the bike is clearly at fault.

Good to see the farang defenders warming up on here. 

 

Hate to break it to you all, but westerners can and do drive badly as well...

My money is on the locals lying.

This can happen from time to time.  :whistling:

Could be interesting to know if the u-turn where made where a u-turn is legal,

And where on Threppasit would you say that is true? Not anywhere I believe.

Obviously that British idiot driver did not look in his rear view mirror and just decided to do U-turn. It does happen all the time, can't count the many times it happens in Australia as well and in 99% of cases it's always the car driver at fault. 

Feel sorry for the Thai couple, hope they recover well.
