we that will be incentive for him to make sure the vehicle he is responsible for is road worthy in the future - he doesn't want another hefty fine like that again 

 

How many thousands of baht damage did he cause ? not to mention the extreme risk to life

 

well done Thailand everyone feels much safer now ………………………….NOT
