Video: Motorist opens the door into a biker then drives off as if nothing had happened

Caption: Why did you open the door?//video screenshot

 

An injured motorcyclist has appealed to a driver from his bed to own up to what he did after he opened a car door and floored him. 

 

CCTV footage from the area of Seri Thai Soi 20/1 showed the driver of a pick-up open the door directly in the path of the motorcycle.

 

The driver then repeatedly tried to close the door that appeared damaged.

 

People come to help the stricken motorcyclist. After this the pick-up driver just drives off. 

 

The motorcyclist told Thai Rath from his bed that when he saw the footage he was disgusted. He called on the driver to take responsibility.

 

He said he was the breadwinner of his family and had cancer. 

 

He said that he often went this way on his motorcycle and said he had had no problem previously with the driver of the pick-up. He was amazed that neither the driver nor passenger offered him any help at all. 

 

A female relative said they went to the police to file a complaint. She said the police told them to find out the licence plate of the pick-up, they wouldn't do it. 

 

They managed to do with this and called the driver but got no answer. 

 

They are now preparing to go back to the police with the further evidence they have gathered. 

 

Thai Rath posed the question on their video report: Why did the driver open the door?

I go between the cars too.. but not too fast just for this reason. But there is no reason for anyone to open a car door like that. Plus if you do then looking at what is behind you is quite important. I hope they get the guy. 

Yes I agree with you but unfortunately that driver had a reason to open that door....it was his reason......and we know anything is possible here....whereas conscientious motor bike riders, like you and I etc understand this problem, most of the riders here do not. They all figure the other guy will look out for them. They ride with blinders on. Where smarter riders, to the best of their ability, will make sure no one goes where they want to go. (And no door goes where they go.)

Even at your and my slower speed, there is no avoiding a suddenly opened door at the wrong time, only the damage is less then if your going faster. So its still on the person opening the door.

"So its still on the person opening the door."  

 

Tell that to the guy in the hospital bed, especially if he's dead or paralyzed....Maybe next time the rider will wait behind the cars (kinda like a car does)....what's the rush? or go dead slow through there and if a door opens there will be no big problem. I ride like that but then I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to broken bones etc.
