These accidents with means of transport for people, is becoming a daily thing, and still no one doing something!
 

 Indeed.

 

I doublechecked the date before clicking on this story - thought at first it was one I'd read a few days ago and a few days before that one.

 

Really they could just reprint this story every few days, just change the location of the accident.

Word to the wise...stay off Thai roads. Your life could depend on it.

I cancelled a planned stay in Chiang Rai after reading about all the accidents on the road between there and Chiang Mai. Not worth the risk of my life.

   What happened to the classic brake failure? 

The driver could claim the passenger was attempting to open the emergency exit.

I wonder if the numerous accidents both sea and land that the Chinese tourist suffer are reported in China, as there is no free press there. I also wonder if the many Chinese tourists will be covered for compensation by the bus and ferry companies insurance?

Should be named "the curve of a thousand retards" due to that so many fools don´t understand to brake before the curve.

Braking often not required  just removing foot  from the accelerator is enough but watch any Thai driver and its gas brake gas brake.

I feel sorry for the passengers and hope that all of them get well and recover from their injuries.

As for the accident and the discussion here, this is normal life here, why is everyone so upset?
