RIP. I’ve had a few crashes in motor vehicles and walked away completely unscathed ... I would never have survived if I’d been on a motorbike.

Rider of the motorbike didn't even look over her shoulder for traffic coming from behind before she had started crossing the road and was nearly halfway across.

See this all the time here and for the life of me can't understand why there is so little awareness of what is going on around themselves whilst in traffic.

Thainess, !!!

Video: Female motorcyclist dead, child critical after smash in Krabi

Caption: Couldn't brake in time

 

Shocking dash cam and CCTV footage showed two angles of an accident involving a motorcycle and a pick-up in Krabi in Thailand's south yesterday morning. 

 

The Honda Click ridden by a Thai woman with a 12 year old female relative on the back is in the far left side of the Petchkasem Road in Thap Prik sub-district. 

 

Suddenly they turn into the path of an Isuzu pick-up as they try to enter the soi leading to the temple of Wat Nai Song. 

 

Wilaiwan, 23 was pronounced dead at the scene. 

 

Twelve year old Thimaporn is in a critical condition in Krabi Hospital. 

 

The driver of the pick-up Khomsan, aged 40, remained at the scene and gave evidence that was corroborated by the dash cam. 

 

CCTV from outside a convenience store showed that Wilaiwan had perhaps glanced back - but she still tried to cross in front of the pick-up, suggests Thaivisa. 

 

Khomsan was going from Ao Nang to Surat Thani. 

 

The victim had just been shopping and was returning home with her relative on the back of the bike.

commonsense is lacking. It's so difficult to comprehend how anyone wouldn't instill such basic safety knowledge through out there generations or even just amoung there immediate family and friends. Is it just laziness? How hard is it to look over your shoulder? If you cant get off the road and don't be so dam selfish.
