Two Thais injured as Brit makes "sudden U-turn"

Recommended Posts

I was in a multiple vehicles accident near Ayutthaya province a few years ago with several fender benders and vehicles involved.

Whilst at the police station, the drivers who were coming from behind were all determined to be at fault and needed to pay the fines.  Whomever's vehicle was damaged at the rear is not at fault.

In this case, the driver of the car Samuel Stonard was in the front and the damage to his vehicle was in the rear. 

Under the laws that were instructed to me, this would deem the drivers of the motorbike to be at fault here for not paying attention to what is in front of them, and/or driving to close or quickly upon the vehicles ahead of them.

It doesn't matter if the car was driven by a farang, he was in the front and the guilty is always who is driving behind the accident.  Everything ahead is in the clear.

Therefore he was following the car too closely, not allowing enough space between himself and the vehicle in front.

I worked as a professional driver for 24 years before coming here and this is 100% spot on. OK, the Brit maybe did the most stupid thing imaginable but that's why we leave gaps.

     If  the farlang was not in Thailand ,  this would never  have happened .

This is gonna cost him ! Big wonga

Why ? A normal Class A insurance will pay for it. Happened to me a couple of times after 8 years here. I just called the insurance agent after a motorbike crashed into my side and everything was settled.

Didn't have to pay a single baht. 

 

Most of you claim the Brit is innocent , so with a normal insurance there is nothing to worry about.

To be honest one can see bad examples of driving much closer to home than UK!
