No way the Minibus should have attempted to make the turn at that point in time when he could see the fast oncoming traffic.  One problem of many here is they can't seem to judge speed and distance.

There is no spatial awareness.

it turns green how SLOW Thais are to move off?

This is the reflection I make systematically;
it looks like they drive a 38 ton load

 

After watching the video; the driver of the minibus is at fault;
he must wait until all the vehicles that have a red light actually stop;
it must be customary to see his idiotic maneuver.

 

He is the only driver to start; the others, who have the green light, wisely wait for the other drivers to stop.

There is also the main point that the minibus should not have been in the road position he was in. Turning right at the junction from the straight ahead lane.

If it's done to me I usually take as wide a turn as possible causing them to end up having to push someone else behind me out of the way.

Me first no me first, six of one and half a dozen of the other..... having said this once again the Thai authorities should shoulder some blame as they did stipulate that going against the natural flow of traffic (Wrong way along a one way street) or going through a Red Light is a minor offense....!!!

Hope you dont have a driving license, or just a strange sense of humor.

 

If the rule is that you have to wait for all traffic to stop, why would traffic stop in the first place?

They have right of passage as long as they keep moving according to you, so its best to collectively keep going.

 

What does a red traffic light mean in your book?

It means there's still time for 5 more vehicles to pass through the intersection.

In Europe or maybe in USA (  I never went there ) ; but we are in Thailand where red and green lights are often some decoration on the roads ..
