Another plonker who thinks he is important riding a motorcycle without due care and attention. Yes the Taxi driver should have stopped but the jumped up prat on the motor cycle should have been driving slower and more cautiously knowing full well what the driving standards are in Thailand.

 

Its the look at me I have a General in a car behind me mentality.

post 2 what an absolutely stupid post,, taxi driver , turned across traffic, without looking left

Not necessarily. As an experienced motorcyclist I can pick out 4, possibly 5, major errors that contributed to the accident straight away. 

 

1. Look at the road position of the motorcycle. He is keeping to the far right of his lane. This is inherently dangerous. His view of oncoming traffic is restricted. Oncoming traffic cannot see him. His time to react to anyone entering his law is reduced to an impossible fraction of a second. I have no idea why he is there other than as a shield. Well, he became a shield.

2. Speed. Speaks for itself.

3. He enters a crossroads and does not reduce speed, does not cover his brakes and does not change down a gear just carries on.

4. Related to 3 and 2 and 1, when the taxi moves into his path, he fails to react in any way showing he is not paying attention.

5. This may well be a bus lane and the taxi is expecting only buses but I am not sure about that.

 

However, ultimately the taxi is in the wrong as you state. But if you think the motorcyclist is 0% responsible, then we have to disagree. I think his failures above contributed at least 20% to the accident.

After watching the video what you have written above were my immediate thoughts, particularly the motorcyclists awful road positioning - no concept of defensive riding whatsoever.
