Video: Drunk Korean argues with the cops after carnage in South Pattaya

Recommended Posts

From video footage, it appears that the road has traffic going in both directions. Rather than the Korean driving the wrong way down a one way road, he was driving in the wrong lane of a two way road (i.e., he was on the right side, when he should have been on the left side). 

 

In Korea, they drive, on the right side, and, being drunk, he may have not realized it, at the time.

The only problem I have with this is that you would need a Police force to enforce the law? 🤔

 

Well, they get paid anyway so why bother working. My brother-in-law is a fairly senior policeman and I asked my wife what he actually does. She had no idea.

"The motorcycle they were on had police plates" - Glad I am not a Korean, glad I am not a restaurant owner, glad I am not drunk, glad I am not going down the wrong way on a street. Most of all though, I am not too glad about the outcome if those are police plates! Well done that prick! go to jail go directly to jail do not pass go and do not collect 200 pounds!

I hate to bring this up again. But killing a cop in a traffic accident means nothing if one is well connected. Right, Boss? However, I suppose some random kimchi slinger is not anywhere as well connected as an heir to the Red Bull fortune.

or better yet enforcement... i never saw a cop in vietnam yet everyone wore helmets...

Helmet and seatbelts saves lives, but they should not prioritize that, they should prioritize drunk/drug driving, reckless driving and driving of red light. Seatbelts saves life, but it’s better to focus on the real problems.

 

i couldn’t care less if people don’t wear seatbelts or helmets that’s their own problem.

Why its so common to drink and drive in thailand?

why everyone think you can drive when dronk.

the best for the Korean guy is to think about it what he do in jail for some years.

Given drink driving is widely accepted and rife among the indigenous population of Thailand, maybe the less intelligent among the tourists pick up on that and think it OK to follow suit?

As to the reason why? The only conclusion I can draw is inherent and abject stupidity.

drink driving should be a 12 month ban no questions. they got to start somewhere, Songkran coming up, bet ya life (sorry) we will be seeing many more photos like this, i popped in to see a rriend in Pattaya just now she said i didnt know you had a bike (had it 2 years) my answer, no, when i pop into town to have a few beers i take the baht bus, simple realy

would be much more effective to simply fine and hold the vehicle for a month...

Yes it should, but given a significant proportion of Thai's drive unlicenced, and most tourists are only here for short spells, how would that be enforced? The only way to stop them is to take away their vehicles.
