Thai driving: This one takes some believing!

Probably the same, but I wouldn't call it a checkpoint, more like a police box.

A police box? A bit like the Tardis in Dr Who (UK TV), insomuch as it transports you to another dimension - one that's work-free and sleep enabled.

Wholly believable- didn't bat an eyelid.  Funny though!

Wow, great stunt driving!  Hit the box square on, then whipped a left turn and parked right by the median strip.

So even if the driver was fined 300k did he/she bother to pay it? 😎

It wasn't a case of break failure though.

Probably took his eyes off the phone at the wrong time.

They speculated that the driver was either drunk or fell asleep at the wheel.

 

less speculation and more facts please?

1am and the person was drunk as a skunk, unless the person had a seizure and went into convulsions. That takes the cake for stupid dangerous award of the month.

Being drunk is the more obvious answer, however, it may be a medical condition. Our next door neighbour, a middle aged male, has had 2 main road accidents in a year as a result of convulsions. He is currently awaiting his replacement vehicle. He will continue to drive.

just as the tuk tuk driver jumps and runs;

the car's brakelights come on...

and stay on, as the driver's foot is still on the pedal...

 

so, whilst on the subject of runners

when is a runner, not necessarily a runner?

 

A pensioner drove his brand new Mercedes to 100 mph on the m1 looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him. He floored it to 140 , then 150, ... then 155, ... Suddenly he thought, "I'm too old for this nonsense !" So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him.

The officer walked up to him, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in ten minutes. Today is Friday and I'm taking off for the weekend with my family. If you can give me a good reason that I've never heard before, why you were speeding... I'll let you go."

The Man looked very seriously at the police man, and replied :- "Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman, I thought you were bringing her back." !!!

The Cop left saying, " Have a good day, Sir "...

That's a VERY Old One....

I had to watch that several times, laughing all the while, because that is a bit of pure quality.

Very lucky no one was in the box cos they would have been toast.

I suspect he was in no condition to drive. You have to be seriously pissed to cause that sort of carnage.

No. You just have to be a Thai driver.

One of the few times when it was a good time for cheap construction and shoddy materials
