"What about my brand new car!?" Thai lady fusses as Frenchman lies in pool of blood

Look, Thai lady, you parked your car, it was hit by the French guy, who will probably pay for the damages. That's good.

If your car was hit by the average non-licensed, uninsured Thai motorcycle guy, chances are you get nothing, or your premium goes up. That would be bad, wouldn't it?

Further, your brand new car got it's first battle scar - it was just a matter of time. All the subsequent dings and bumps and scratches will hurt a lot less. You should celebrate, with alcohol and then drive home (with a taxi)

Yes, sure. That´s the way to go. Everybody under the same stone, and then you step on it.

I am kicking 75 in the ass, selling my scooter, I do have a truck but as much as I go to town, I would use grab or a baht bus. Good luck to the injured fellow, hope he is Ok.

I think everyone"s missing the point here, it doesn't matter who's at fault. The guy's on the ground in a pool of blood. Beggar the festering car, worry about it later. Cheez, some people.

Good to know that you would care about a totally unknown person more than your 1 week old car. I actually do not belive you, it a very normal reaction to say something quick without giving much thought about it.

Yes, the first is the worst, after that, one can relax.

Can't see the lines there, but could easily be she was parked on the street, therefor illegally. If that is the case she is responsible.

I do not think you are right, but I am unsure about Thai law but in my first year of driving I bumped into a van illegally parked, when the police arrived I pointed out that it was illegally parked, bad mistake I was told in no uncertain terms it was my fault, doesn't matter where he parked I bumped into him, suppose only defence would be if the car was parked in a dangerous place but even then basically one should never drive any faster than being able to stop for or maneuver around obstacles ahead.

Never buy a black car. Barely visible at night and a heat sink in the daytime. Oh, and smallest fleck of dirt shows up, moreso than white cars.

Yellow is said to be the safest color as far as visibility goes.

I suppose if blind drunk color doesn't matter much at night, however

So, now you say that a parked car in the road is risking to be schratched, damaged or worse, and that is her fault? She was too lazy, so she deserved it, right? 

 

Really we have a WHITE wagon parked correctly on the road in the CBD , twice in a year some Thai on a motor scooter has just run into the back of it. If not for CCTV we would never catch the runner. So we need to be careful about fault.

Thats right lady get your priorities in the correct order... Sod the French man... What about my car.🙄

Sod him?  Did you not notice that the French man was been very well attended to by the rescue services?  What could she have done to help more?

 

Being a local, maybe she knew something about his financial and insurance situation that gave her cause for concern!

He's on the ground being treated and taken care for by the rescue services, he's not being left there with no attention while the car is being fussed about.  Geez...some people.
