German motorbike driver dies on Patong Hill, Phuket

Recommended Posts

Wouldn’t your reactionary response be to turn the wheel away from the initial collision? If that is the case, the driver was further right than where he ended up....

 

i don't think where the trucks rests indicates where the collision was...many factors involved need to be looked at....

 

it looks like a head on so blame needs to be assigned...

 

lets hear from more than one party....easy to blame a voiceless dead person to protect oneself....

 

xenophobia and and lack of critical thinking skills sure raises its head in a previous remark....

Was about to say the same Swiss or Brits stay in bed tomorrow 🤔

You should remember that nearly a million Brits holiday in Thailand every year. The vast majority have a great time and have no major problems. (I'm starting to sound like a British gvt dude!).😊

I'm not saying that they're all well behaved, you can see them on any Saturday night in Britain in any city center. "Men" who can't take their drink.

However, it's still not many is it?:One-thirtieth as many Brits travelled to Thailand as Spain during the year in question – or 432,000 – of which, as noted above, 194 found themselves in trouble with the law, the data shows.

 

I have a figure of 987,456 British arrivals to Thailand per annum, arrests in the hundreds isn't very many at all, which is the point I made. In fact, knowing how many drunken-neanderthals there are in my country, I'm surprised it's so few!

RIP to the guy.

 

For what it's worth, in my 20 years in Thailand I avoided riding on motorbikes. A dangerous mode of transport anyway, on Thai roads no way. (Even more so if on the back with a Thai driver, ie: motorbike taxi)

 

Maybe ok for tootling down deserted dirt tracks etc, and that's about it.

RIP to the guy.

 

For what its worth, in my 40 years in Thailand I have ridden a motorcycle almost constantly.

OK, I'm maybe just much more cautious. However:

 

"Yet, one thing remains the same; road traffic deaths among motorcyclists in Thailand are still the highest in the world. It is estimated that crashes and deaths cost the country about 500 billion baht,..."

Perhaps the CCTV will reveal how the motorcyclist and motorcycle manged to end up so far back from what seems to be the (presumed?) post-impact stopping point of the pick-up, and even further back from the presumed point of impact (which the policeman is indicating?).
