Thai bus travels ‘sideways’ along north-east highway

VIDEO: สุดจัดปลัดบอก ปลัดลาออกยังบอกว่าสุดจัด

 

A bus, making its way from Nakhon Ratchasima, to Udon Thani, has surprised the passengers in the car behind. They did what we all would do in these circumstances. Notify the police? No, post it on Facebook!

 

The bus was travelling, crab-like, slightly sideways, at reasonably high speed for many kilometres. The bus’s wheel alignment was well out of whack or something was loose. Either way, the bus was a danger for everyone on the road, and the passengers, as its journey was captured, making its way through Khon Kaen in north-east Thailand.

 

On a positive note, the passengers on the right hand side of the bus had a lovely view of the road ahead.

I saw this on the news earlier, the driver was hauled into the DLT but I don't know the outcome as my Thai is not yet good enough and Mrs BM was not around to translate.

An unsafe bus driven at an unsafe speed by a unsafe driver, who will be held responsible for the inevitable crash, probably the wet road. T I T

Exactly my thought PJP , first sharp right hander and the driver can watch himself crash by looking in the right hand mirror .  I hope it does crash if only to hear the excuse , maybe my bus is bent . If you were standing by the roadside waiting for a bus you would think this one is about to run me down !

It's purposeful: way to get a few extra km from tires that have already gone bald on normal tread section. Get a little "side action", as it were.
