A Thai pick-up driver told reporters that "he never saw" a motorcycle coming as he did a U-turn from the left lane of a road in Trat, eastern Thailand, yesterday.

 

CCTV showed Pongporn Saleesoon, 24, slow down then pull across the oncoming bike. 

 

Both the riders on the Honda Wave were 15 years old - they were named as Natthakorn Thana and Thaweewut Keuakoon. 

 

Thaweewut is the owner of the bike and was riding pillion, reported Daily News.

 

They were both taken to Trat Hospital though there was no report on their injuries. 

 

Pongporn told reporters that he did not see the motorcycle as he did a U-turn from the left lane. 

 

His pick-up has Kampheangphet plates. The bike was registered in Trat.

Everyone should know by now a Thai pickup driver needs two lanes to turn left and any number to turn right I guess they learned a hard lesson🤔

Ah, the anti bike brigade are out in force quickly on this one.

Never blame the 4 wheeler, hey lads?

My thoughts exactly. There was a similar thread a couple of days where it was exactly the same. Me personally, when I drive a car, I try not to pull stupid u-turns in front of oncoming vehicles. But that's just me.

Glad to see there are others, reading thaivisa thought it was only me.

Yup and that's because  they are too lazy to steer by hand over hand.....

Difficult when sitting with chin over wheel :cheesy:

It always puzzles me what seating positions they have.

But again: no proper driving schools/lessons, no traffic education whatsoever.

Surprised?

Of course the pick up driver can't see. They are trained to think the whole road belong to them. Its their own world!

 

Side mirrors and rear view mirror are useless in Thailand. Manufacturers should remove them to cut cost.
