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

Recommended Posts

I've always wondered....why is it so painfully difficult for people to turn (properly) into the (close) lane without taking 1/2 of the next lane or 1.5 in this case? It doesn't even appear from simply cutting the corner too short, just plain unable to turn the wheel the another round it seems.

 

I got these 2 big intersections on my way home and for the life of mine I need to make sure I am either far ahead or decently far behind the car to my right hand side as I have no idea just how far they need to push me off my lane.

He was intentionally trying to get around the white car that entered when he did, its the Me-First mentality....he wanted to fly across all the lanes to the far right one before anyone else did, he's more important than everyone else, just another dumb ignorant Thai driver......dime a dozen here.

Most Thai drivers sit far too close to the steering wheel.

So does the NASCAR drivers in the US of A. :whistling:

I'm not sure if I would put the entire blame on the BMW driver. Marketing and instructionals have a lot to do with it as well.

Thats because it offers more control, even I do this, those who sit far back with their arms extended all the way out to look cool, have no idea what they are doing.

The BMW driver should have turned into the closest lane when he entered the highway which would have been the left-most lane, but since I cannot determine the make and year of the car from which the photos were taken, I can't make a call on this because, after all, it's the worth of the car which indicates the wealth of the driver that has the final say. 😏

Owning  a BMW or Merc they have 90% right of way on the roads 🙄,

or that's what they think,you get on the  Ferrari's and their ilk,

and its we own the roads,do you know who i am.

regards worgeordie

Its not true, the fact is everyone on Thai roads think they are in the right because no one has taught them any different, most don't have the critical skills to understand when they are doing something stupid/ignorant/unsafe

the police compound the problem as they also have no idea about road safety laws, I have explained to police about what a solid white line means internationally and they decided it was time to see my visa

until common sense such as stopping distances, keeping with the flow of traffic, joining traffic at the same speed, avoiding causing any other traffic to do any of the s's including the big shitting themselves Thailand will continue to occupy the top spot for most dangerous roads in the world/most stupid drivers

Of course he was in the right !   Can't you lot tell simply from the cut of his hair that he is obviously of superior stock ?   Probably the son of a senior judge or some such.

 

Talking of stocks, he should be put a set for a day or two and be joined by his parents for having raised such a discourteous, selfish, arrogant son.   A good birching may help them all see the error of their ways.

 

A second offence and drastic pruning will be essential in order to ensure there cannot be a further generation contributing like-minded individuals into society.

BMW drivers are the same the world over "A-Holes" except in Germany. In Germany, a BMW is a normal car. I am from the UK before anyone starts. Audi owners are not far behind BMW owners either. 

In Europe most of the taxis I saw were Mercedes so they are nothing special there Like wise BMW and Audi just run of the mill transport.Mind you Benz are bloody good cars

Careful with this. Dash cams always make it look like you're going faster than you actually are. 

 

But the bottom line is still the behaviour of the BMW driver, both during his first manoeuvre and subsequent one. What a tool.

I said compared to other traffic. It was a comparator or do dash cams only appear to make the car faster for the car the cam is mounted in ?

 Better to flash the high beams at these people than to use the horn. Gets their attention just as fast without the rage they exhibit at hearing a horn.
