Carnage in Rayong: Caused by a rescue vehicle going through a red light on way to another accident

Recommended Posts

Yes slow down entering intersection but Thai drivers do not respect and react accordingly to emergency vehicles....

 

drivers don’t stop or pull over whether emergency cars or pedestrians...

 driving as an individual not as part of a functional system working together

How long have you Physically been in Thailand?  Are you aware of Thai driving habits and world Stats?

22 years, how about you? Yes, I am, but that is not a valid excuse in my book.

So an ambulance lights flashing patiently at a red light with a patient in agony in the back, but a recovery truck going to collect a damaged vehicle ( if that was the case) goes through a red light at speed, what a mixed up place this is.

Obviously wrong amulets plastered across the dashboard and insufficient crap hanging from the rear view mirror didn't protect them or their victims.  Luckily no one died.    B+ Must try harder

But what I said must be right though as qualified Emergency Response Drivers have stated the same rulings.

understand they are supposed to slow down at intersections,  however people (walking and/or driving) are supposed to pull over when hearing a rescue vehicle siren

Something I have noticed here in thailand - sirens on emergency vehicles are very quiet.

You can sure hear them in Rayong.  I guess you have never been there.
