at what speed and on what side of the road did this happen, I'd be willing to wager he was riding like a lunatic on the wrong side of the road

Maybe the Czech was not used to left hand driving and just looked to the wrong side? It takes time to get used to... Just look to both sides and you are much safer.

One of the requirements to ride a motorcycle in Thailand is to be clueless and not drive cautiously. Why not? You can always blame your reckless driving on the breaks.

maybe maybe maybe maybe

 

I know the soi - I have walked on it and driven on it and it is dangerous with Thai lunatics scrambling to pass everything in front of them - that is a fact

 

same goes for beach road Klang and 2nd 3rd road - in fact basically every road in pattaya has thai lunatics (and some farangs)   thinking they are Rossi with their exhausts removed making as much noise as possible in the most childish manner you could imagine

 

we have only heard the Thai guys version of events which was unsurprising - I am sure there were other people who witnessed this incident who were ignored or what they said was unreported

Bikes dont stop for anyone on soi Buakhao. taxi bikes are by far the worst , they cant stand it when the are forced to go slow behind a baht bus so solution is overtake with speed on blind corners and hope for the best..to bad if a pedestrian is crossing the rd ahead cause he wont be seen, just felt!

Yes, I meant cross the road. I still can't blame the driver. The drunk (?) pedestrian should've checked the road situation before he left the sidewalk.

Yes but ... did he look both ways?

I dislike riding my scooter on Soi Bukaho. No sidewalks, tourists walking two-three abrest instead of single file. Darting across the road drunk or sober without checking for traffic. Stop and go Baht busses. Pedestrians have to remember its not walking street, vehicle operators have to keep in mind pedestrians are often drunk and come from countries that drive on the opposite side of the road and check the wrong direction as they start to cross the roads.

Well no surprise here at all. The only surprise to me is that such incidents are not more common place. How on earth have they allowed this mess to develop, where a previously quiet Soi has turned into one of Pattaya's busiest entertainment areas for tourists, without having pavements for people to walk on safely?

Hordes of drunk people walking on the road in among unregulated traffic will never end well.

Money, greed and corruption are the causes Pattaya is in such a state. Footpaths are taken over by business, double parking unchecked and zero mobile, police patrols add to the mayhem on this and other city roads. More injuries will follow.

All this wrangling above about whose fault it was!  Pattaya police will determine it's the farang's fault when they get up around noon today.

As is evident throughout the country the concept of zoning has never been adopted - i.e. specific areas reserved for residential, commercial, and industrial enterprises.  Not unusual to have a mechanical workshop or a woodworking shop, etc. adjacent to a single family dwelling.
