Video: Just another day of "road rage" madness on the Thai roads

Recommended Posts

While Chiang Mai can be criticised for the air quality, I have yet to see a road rage incident in six years driving a car here. I drive defensively anyway.

If someone wants to kill themselves by driving like an idiot, far be it from me to obstruct them in any way.

the end of this video is a good example of how Thais focus and react while driving. 

 

even when they know something unusual is happening there is that period of time where they just "blank out" at the critical moment.

 

 

 

I would put it down to brake failure - that old chestnut normally works

When we lived in Thailand taking my children 15km to school and picking them up each day would see about 6 people try and kill me or commit suicide. I hated driving there ad we had to be so careful on our motorbikes (as Thais say Big Bikes). Love driving back in the UK.

The same happened to me on the motorway between Pattaya and Bangkok. Every time "something" happens, I save the file from my dashcam to the cloud. Just in case. Over the years, that's many files!

I think you could start deleting some of them. It's really only the 5 minutes before and after an incident you need.

Yes indeed. I only save the files with incidents + really close calls. But no accident. Each video file is 3 minutes in length. Many files in 10 years, and counting!

Difficult situation. No matter how hard  it is ‘don’t be reactive’!!! Other than to avoid. I just don’t react drive straight if not cut off, if cut off, slow down gently a tiny bit at a time get passenger to call RTP (for what it’s worth lol 😆)

try to let others pass and get behind one of them and follow that car like glue.

don’t look at the nutjob unless they come at you outside of the car.

dont stop and get out ..

Poor driver cause it’s made harder being on a damn freeway !

get off the road onto another as quick as you can without telegraphing your exit.

if you know the area drive to the cop shop or a courthouse , with your camera footage.

stopping on thai or any freeway is very dangerous so maybe not do that.

i knew a fella when I was younger (had an old car) and this other guy got all hot n started harassing him on the road, my buddy just went by the guy n totally sideswiped him deliberately then when the guy stopped in total disbelief he stopped and backed up ramming his front end in haha. Then waved smiling and drive home 😆

yes, having spacial awareness, and knowing where the copshops are! 

because the twerp will be glued to his rearvision mirrors, he would be easy meat to be tricked to steer wherever you 'hint' you are going to go... 

with plenty of your blinkers, slowing etc - as seen in his mirrors; he'll dumbly precede your exit from the freeway... and unknowingly 'lead' you to the copshop.

 - like a sheepdog pre-empting a sheep herd's movements, to the desired fence gate

They are terrible drivers but it's embedded selfishness in their genetic pool.

I always find these farmers driving those ugly japanese trucks or "SUV" very funny.

If they had a face they would be driving a German car as any decent guy ❤️

I doubt it. Police don't seem to do anything until someone dies. Very sad really. There's no law enforcement to speak of here - even less so if one is wealthy and / or connected.
