The difference being most UK cyclists actually understand that trucks have blind spots.

 

90% of people using the road in the UK all have road sense not like these Thai people who do not seem to have the sense they were born with ?

The motorcyclist was totally in the wrong, she used a lane that was not there and then got in the blind spot of the truck driver.  90% of the problem with the road rules in Thailand is the police , they simply don't know the rules whether their not explained properly at training or their just to dumb to understand the rules, or dare I say a big brown envelope has changed hands to help said police pass the test. Whatever the truck driver was not at fault.

It seems that nobody noticed the bike in front of her jumping the red light.

Did the truck have the lower half of his windscreen covered with a curtain and the rest of the screen almost blanked out with stickers and ecclesiastical dangles ? As this type of incident is a regular occurrence perhaps the driver might like to invest in an extra 15 'wing' mirrors so a sneaky brain dead motorcyclist can be seen jumping the queue .

Any where there is a gap Thai's will go for it I dont think most of these riders know that most vehicles have a blind spot more so with big trucks

Yet another case of Me First. The woman drove right in front of the truck which had already begun to move. About as dumb and selfish as you can get, and she paid the ultimate price. Notice also in the video that the biker in front of her drove straight through before the light had changed.

Looks like the truck is going straight, not turning right unlike this lady.

I suspect that if the rear dual tire sets don't clear the curb by going out straight initially, the truck will jump the median.

Probably more to the point is that the intersection at that location wasn't designed for large trucks making sharp right-hand turns. Not a problem for a shorter auto or motor bike. I've seen Thailand  intersections where dual trailer trucks have to make a 3-point turn traveling almost through the intersection to do so.
