It wasn't the brakes... this time the steering wheel was to blame!

Nut at the wheel...plenty of them all over the world.

I would issue a large penalty on the company of around 3 million baht also the area that gave the all clear on last inspection of the bus would be given a penalty and full audit with a record made of the incident

The owner of the bus company would be penalised financially and be ordered to have his entire fleet serviced

Very lucky no one died and not a multiple car pile up happened, very lucky indeed.

This kind of happy go lucky approach is exactly why there are so many fatalities on the road every year and parents lose their children from this kind of stupidity the whole bunch are to blame the owner of the bus, the driver, the inspector who gave it the all clear - whole lot need to be fined and put to shame

Next time it could go through a restaurant with people sitting eating and kill an entire workforce saying 'mai pen rai krub' will not work then and bowing to a golden image of a man meditating will be counter productive as the man himself promotes mindfulness of which there is clearly non to be found here! 🤣 

Tick tock major pileup incoming tick tock tick tock

Maybe the bus will go through an entire police department having lunch next time - maybe then someone will care

Unfortunately they are always the same reasons that lead to these situations, often with a tragic end!
Incompetent drivers without due instruction and sense of responsibility, and vehicles with little or no maintenance!

It was maintained, they just forgot to fix the steering wheel properly, can happen on a bad day.

I don't see a picture with the driver holding the steering wheel.  

He hasn't loosened the bolts before the police check yet

I have heard of "free wheeling" but this is unbelievable!

Yes- it happens everywhere.  However, things like this happen often in Thailan because greedy and rich owners refuse to maintain equipment timely and properly.  And, they do not carry the proper insurance and force the drivers to continue to drive past the point of endurance.

 

Until there is an accident- the owners skirt the law because the regulatory agencies do not do their job and it is the drivers and the public who bear the blame.

 

Thailand has had a history of things like this happening- public vans having accidents; buses not properly maintained; nightclubs going up in fire due to lack of oversignt.

 

While thee things happen in other countries- they happen less and when they do there is swift action by the police and courts. Fact of life in Thailand- sorry , but the truth hurts.
