Thai Road Rage: BMW driver claims he was in the right - what do you think?

 

5pm.jpg

 

A road rage incident caught on a dash cam reached the Thai national TV news after it was posted on Facebook.

 

Bird Tanapeerakoon was driving along a road when a BMW X1 came out of a soi and cut across several lanes of traffic even impeding his progress in the third lane. 

 

Bird hooted his horn but that only served to enrage Mr BMW. 

 

He chased him down and then cut in front of him, stopped his car and emerged to confront him.

 

Bird was complaining about his appalling driving - especially as he had a child in his car. 

 

While Mr BMW countered that Bird was the one who was driving badly. 

 

As his wife protested he even told Bird: "You have no common sense".

 

The story was featured on TNA MCOT on television.

There is absolutely no question that the BMW idiot is at fault. Not that he'd see it the same way, because like so many "big car" owners he appears to be a self-entitled pr**k who can do no wrong. Book him, suspend his license for six months, slap him with a hefty fine and even charge him with illegally blocking a traffic lane and verbally abusing another motorist. I know, it's not going to happen, but it really should.

bmw failed to give right of way  and came out way too far to turn, he is totally at fault, I had exactly the same thing done to me, hit the horn as I barely missed hoim then he chased me and while I was turning into to get fuel cut across the front of me and I almost t boned him, He didnt move till I got out of my car and bashed his side window and said a few choice words, he realized I was bigger than him and pretty pi**ed off & he took off, Unfortunately many thais cant handle loss of face by being in the wrong so have to try to show how big their dicks are, tends to fall flat when they come up against someone that is more than ready to sort them out

Well there are a variety of issues here.  Firstly the BMW exited the soi, not into the nearside lane and then increased his speed which would then allow a safe filter across the other lanes, rather he drove straight out,with poor car control to actually swerve slightly back to the middle lane. He was in the main the poor driver.

 

However, secondly, the vehicle with the cam sounds like an old tractor so judging by the stupid selection of dials stuck on the dashboard it would suggest it was a tarted up old pick-up driven by a boy racer, witness the speed he was doing compared to other traffic. So whilst the BMW I would apportion 60% of the fault to the other 40% must lie with the other driver for driving to fast and not paying sufficient attention as he should have seen the exiting BMW sooner to allow him to take a smoother line of avoidance.

 

Punishment should be a Wai and give the local Monk a few baht for the BMW driver and for the pick-up driver, confiscate his pick-up until he fits a legal exhaust. Next case.  😂

A Thai driver gave me the finger yesterday. Obliviously another idiot? I was merging into a stationary U turn lane when he decided there was enough room to squeeze by thus leaving me out to dry. I inched forward a then he inched forward. Eventual to break the stalemate I opened my drivers door thus impeding his forward progress. he honked his horn so i opened the door wider.  So when the traffic started i merged as planned. he then decided he didn't want to U turn after all and passed me giving me the finger. 

 

Old age and treachery will always defeat youth and enthusiasm!

Unfortunately a lot of these road rage videos would seem to validate this sort of childish selfish road behavior, especially if Khun Somchai's car is considered "hi-so". What ever happened to "jai yen yen"?

BMW driver deserved a good slap.

A proper beating.

A real good punch in the mouth.

No respect, bad manners, rude.

Not for his initial mistake, but the chasing down of the driver who used his horn, and then cutting him up.
