I may have been here for too long?
I drive almost every day and see this kind of behavior ten times, twenty times a day;
whether from trucks, coaches or light vehicles, cars, pickups, minibuses

A bit off topic, but I have just come back home from a short trip to the shops. In front of me , 2 young girls on a motorbike laughing and joking - not a problem. Turning right with indicator flashing that they are turning left - definitely a problem.

 

Why do they not install self cancelling indicators on all new motor bikes?

My exact thoughts, if not obscured, then very likely no lights at all.  I see them often near Hua Hin with overloads, no lights and driving like mad men. 

And in the right  hand  lane hogging  it even though they plan to turn right in 10km. Have seen several overturned  also.

Would not help in the situation you just described.

He had already delivered his load of sugar cane to the mill.

Read the article first. He may be totally in the right not that we will ever know.  Tragic waste of life

I would check his tail lights though as this is the main reason that I try avoid driving long distances  at night. A lot of the older trucks tail lights just do not cut the mustard

Now all self appointed TV detectives will marter their brains... 

What did the girls do on the road in that time of the day? Driving, sure, but drunk maybe? Or playing with the mobile? 

Did the truck got rear lights? 

We don't know anything and nobody but the detectives will tell us....

No tail lights! Yes very possible, but please read the report. He had made a delivery so maybe he was empty!!!

 

RIP the girls

Nobody will know for sure what happened but I can't count how many times I've seen girls with a phone in their hand riding a motorcycle. I imagine its even more common driving a car.

Thai roads are something else, speeding to arrive dead on time works very well out here

I was working this area late last year on a wind farm project, at night these truck were nigh on impossible to see, very poorly out and slow moving, in fact many of them were the units with basically a lawn mower engine and no lights.

He left the gas station without paying attention to the traffic coming in front of and behind him;
the little car could not avoid this big vehicle that came out under his nose.

as you must be a witness be sure and give your statement to the RTP

Oh - you were not there ?

I don't think it will ever stop, all this carnage on the roads.

It seems to be a national pastime reporting on the severity and the ways injured, of the poor people involved. 

The TV channels coverage and the Police photo shot opportunities would all come to an end.
