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

I write this as being an Emergency Vehicle Driver in the UK for over 30 years....

 

Red traffic lights on the way to an emergency should be treated as a give way sign

 

And proceed only with extreme caution.

 

Most emergency vehicles i see in Thailand do this, some even stop at red lights.

 

The biggest thing when driving to an emergency is to control the adrenaline rush that

occurs in the body as it can make you blind to obvious dangers.

 

In the UK,  Emergency vehicle drivers have to undergo an intense 10 day refresher course

every 2 years which involves driving in all conditions, you are assessed every second of the course.

 

Seems to me that this driver involved in the incident did everything wrong….but can you blame him

if he has never been trained….this is the biggest problem in Thailand.

 

 

 

 

Have a Nice Day.

But this is Thailand so just sit back, chill out and watch the carnage from a safe place

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

Passed through many times, but never seen/heard an emergency vehicle on a call out. Maybe I've just been lucky.

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

A Sawang Porn Kuson (Rayong) foundation rescue driver Natchaphon Raksakit said he had been responding to a call about an accident in Nata Khwan.

Idiotic driving!

Around this neck of the woods we have rescue service motor bikes (as well as trucks) being driven by young men, lights flashing, very fast no helmets and looking at their Phones,......no more to say really 'cept  they seem full of self importance.

Just watched the video, yes for sure the rescue truck was travelling fast, at the time the looked like he had a clear shot, but the speed the pick up came through from the left lane the rescue truck had no chance.

If I wrote what I think know you are I would either be given a long holiday or banned outright, so your status is protected by the forum rules.

 

However, anyone that has been in Thailand for more than 20 minutes will know more about Thailand than you have learned during your (supposed) 22 years here.

They will make their own mind’s up about whether they believe you or not and judging by the reactions of some of the long term ex-pats to your ‘strange’ beliefs and posts, I would not hold my breath while waiting for a fan club to form.

Oh dear! I am not here to form any fun club. And just because I do not share an opinion, means that you can compare my knowledge after 22 years to 20 minutes. You must be a very fun chap to be around.

What´s wrong with people on the street and most posters here? Emergency viechles have all the rights in the world to run a red light, if they deem that an emergency is calling for it. They are there to save lives. Blaming the rescue viechle for the carnage is total rubbish.

All that hear or see a rescue viechle shall slow down, stop, drive to the side and give way. Nothing more need to be said.
 

No, other viechles are supposed to slow down, stop and give way. That´s why nothing ever happens.

Don't post crap.

Emergency vehicles should approach all hazards with caution and allow other vehicles time to react.

What an absolute load of bull sh1t, a duty of care comes with the use of emergency sirens and lights. 

The driver is in the wrong, no if's, bit's, or maybe's.
