Until some people are severely punished, they will continue to kill without rethinking!
The child had a license ???

Are they serious? There is some idiot cutting sideways across the highway and is 100% in the wrong. Sure, a 13 year old shouldn't be riding a 1000cc in traffic and he was pretty fast too, but giving him 100% blame on the accident? Nodoby seems to be questioning "Suphalat" cutting across on central road markings, in the middle of a highway. 

 

Can you see that yellow island on the road? It's called the safe zone, for pedestrians and vehicles both to stop at to cross the road. It's a market are for cs. Lot's of thai's don't get it too here but everyone ought to slow down at market cos there's a lot going on in there. That's how you get reckless driving charges up if you don't slow down near markets, at intersections, etc.

Yet more proof they are incompetent and reckless like grown man childs - community service should be enforced lets see them go out and police the roads and get a taste of it first hand - money is nothing they should pay in time!!!!

Earlier the parents said he had been trained in how to ride the bike.

 

And my hamster fell off the wheel while reading that out loud. 

 

   How do you train a 13 year old if you can't ride such a bike? 

At a certified training school. Honda Big Wing offer such courses.

These relate to controlling the behavior of a child under the care of parents as well as the fact that the boy had no license and was speeding. 

I concur 100%. Let this serve as a lesson to other parents, thou I doubt it will.

Their ignorance demonstrated by their own words. I love Thailand, but this incident paints the country with a broad brush called stupidity.

Nah, it was misreported. Turned out to be a broken leg for the kid.

 

I am wondering if the guy described as "guardian" in the report is a lawyer or other proxy, rather than a parent or relative. I suspect this family have status. They are certainly wealthy. No other surnames in the report.

Well, I suppose the point could be....the accident might not have happened if the 13 year old hadn't been riding the m/c illegally...just a thought.

You do know why the yellow markings are there, don't you? The Thais obviously don't as they treat them in the same way as pedestrian crossings, as road decoration. Same with double yellow lines. Ask the locals what they mean and they wouldn't have a clue.

The big bike child should not have been driving on the yellow markings. I was taught to treat the area as a brick wall, there to ensure the safe separation of traffic - and in this case to provide a safe haven as the smaller bike rider was waiting patiently to cross. Perhaps she would have been better off just charging across the road in the usual Thai Me First mode.

 

But you are happy to blame the victim.

A fine example of ' How not to '  parenting.

 

I mean ...... these parents are just so dumb it beggars belief.

 

 

Obviously Darwin's theory skipped the parents generation.

 

If the parents were so concerned you would think that they would be aware that the legal age to ride a 110 cc scooter is 15 years old, and 18 years old to ride a "bigger bike".
