PHUKET:-- Two motorbikes were struck by trucks with trailers on Sunday (Mar 17) in two separate incidents on a road where trucks with trailers are prohibited.

 

Both accidents occurred on Rural Rd 4015 in Bangjo, Thalang (see map below). The first accident took place at about 10:28am at which time Thalang Police were notified of a 22-wheel truck, including a trailer, hitting a motorbike.

 

Capt Kraisorn Boonprasop of Thalang Police coordinated with Kusoldharm Foundation and OrBorTor Thepkrasattri rescue workers to find the motorbike driver injured at the scene. Rescue workers took him to nearby Thalang hospital where he was treated for a broken leg.

Our community had to erect physical barriers to stop large vehicles from transiting a small soi. Only physical barriers seem to stop trucks.

Not even recommendations, merely timid suggestions.

Our local bicycle path has been severely damaged by big trucks, both from them crossing it by using impromptu driveways and also by them driving down it where barriers are not sufficient. Unfortunately unless there are policemen standing right there all laws here seem to be little more than a suggestion.

Very few roads in Phuket are suitable for these vehicles and they should probably be banned from the island altogether.

These 22 wheel twins need serious restrictions. They are often moving along at 90kph and more empty (I clocked one today where I live in the north) and despite loads of wet sand at 50 tonnes are still doing 80kph while hovering just a few meters from your rear bumper. All these vehicles need to have a huge red speed number painted on all sides in red with a telephone number under that to ring when they are speeding.

What has a road prohibition order got to do with Thai drivers ? They do what they want at anytime.
