Thais need to slow down, or even stop to look, only compounds the backed up traffic problems..

It baffles me that a lot of Thai drivers struggle to negotiate clearly marked bends on a regular basis. The day before it was Phang Na and 4 deaths ensued as a result. its right up there with the inability to engage brain (and 1st gear) when the lights turn green.

From what I read that accident was caused by a burst offside front tyre. Mind you the pick-up must have been hammering it looking at the video. He jumped over the central reservation at very high speed. Wiped out the m/bike and hit the bus. Pax on bike died and 3 in the pick-up.

Thai has monsoon season and truck overturning season. Brake failure season must have just ended
