Vacuum you  should read the whole story. Police believe that Mr Koch was heading back to his home in Cherng Talay at high speed. He lost control at a curve on the wet road.

It’s very unfortunate for him  RIP

I’m sure he was well aware that this isn’t Germany or any other civilised country for that matter.

The sad thing is that way too many people die on the roads daily unnecessarily this is always due to

1) lack of proper driving training

2) unable to drive in a straight line for at lease a few houndred yards

3) Selfishness

4) Plenty of stupidity linked to being childish no matter their age

4) Not looking who else is on the roads, no caring I should rephrase, this is extremely dangerous but they can’t think that far ahead 😒

5) Jumping red lights

6)  least but not last is driving the wrong way !!!

It would be very helpful for the new comers or tourists to be warned of these criminals inept to drive properly and respectfully.

Sadly, the so called police allows the Thais to get away with a murder ( absolutely literally ) Instead of enforcing the traffic regulations ( which probably they’re not even aware of themselves ! ) Just last night a couple of cops on a bike cut my way without looking and I nearly was going to crash into them 😤 hopeless at everything they do 🤦🏻‍♂️
