PHUKET:-- Police have urged bicycle riders to take extra precautions to stay safe on Phuket’s roads after an Italian man escaped serious injury in an accident in Thalang early on Sunday morning (May 12).

 

Maurizio Solaroli was cycling with a group along Thepkrasattri Rd at about 6am on Sunday. The group was cycling north in the left-hand lane towards Heroines Monument when a white Nissan Almera suddenly moved left from the middle lane and hit Mr Solaroli’s bike causing him to fall just outside Ban Tha Rua School.

 

The driver of the car, Ploen Pookto, stopped and waited for police to arrive.

Police urge bicyclists to take extra precautions to stay safe as they themselves are doing nothing to ensure road safety !

 

I'm amazed that the motorist hasn't either claimed brake failure or simply driven off. 

 

Still, its quite incredible that the motorists didn't spot a peloton !....  could be costly, some of those bicycles are worth more than the car !

Is this place cursed or are there just a lot of bars in the area, there seems to be accidents everyday.

Walked down Soi 24 Suk last night in the dark. It was very busy and raining. Saw 2 cyclists at different times, both with no lights at all. Whilst wishing no harm to anyone, anything they get would be deserved. Just plain plain STUPID!

Some drivers can't see the back of a ten wheeled truck.. as for a cyclist he has no chance in the pecking order of things!
