This crap doesn’t happen in Malaysia because the drivers would get serious prison time, rather than fine prolly equivalent to a couple of days takings....pathetic.

He got a kicking because AFTER he agreed a 300 baht fee with the driver, en route he told the tuk tuk driver to stop at Burger King

Every time I take a taxi to Don Muang or Suvarnabhumi, I ask the driver to pull up someplace where I can buy a beer. Never had a problem.

Thais know that they can get away with this kind of beating without a penalty or with 500 baht and a wei.

Remember the guy kicked in the face on front of the police station in pattaya and in front of police? He didnt even get a fine. Thais get worse and worse every year. Just nasty now. I wish I had never bought a condo in Thailand.

Of course, if there were a proper meter system in place that was used properly, instead of individual fare negotiation, this kind of thing might not happen.

 

oh, but that would mean fleecing of tourists on fares would have to stop. Easier just to hand out a kicking every now and then to make sure tourists fall in line.

He negotiated the fee of 300 baht to get taken back to his hotel, but also wanted to stop at Burger King to get a meal, when arriving at the hotel the driver wanted 500 baht, that's when the trouble started, for 200 baht extra, greed over courtesy, and as Tuk Tuk's don't have metres, the driver should have said if I stop, it's going to be extra, but no, he tried him on for size, with 5 other no hopers of course, usual 500 baht fine and a wai and the matter is over, I would imagine.

 

When will people learn, do not use these clowns, walking is better and money in your pocket then the mafia's, starve I say.

Each person will be charged 500 THB for fighting including the tourist who had the tar beaten out of them.  Thais will wai the Thai public.

These groups of mindless thugs are everywhere not only Thailand.

 

in the west these groups who beat minorities to a pulp are called white supremesist nazis

 

In the Middle East these types are called isis extremist jihadis 

 

here they are called taxi drivers
