Driver fined B400 for reckless driving, yet to face bill for fixing streetlight

Recommended Posts

Wow, a $13 US fine. That will really discourage her from driving recklessly from now on (NOT). Ridiculous.

 

As it's only a 1-series Beemer, I don't think she's at the socio-economic level to be able to pull the "do you know who I am" card with regards to repairing/replacing the light pole, but I wouldn't doubt if she avoids the full cost of that with a strategic "brown envelope".

No reason was given as to why she lost control of the vehicle.

 That's because they couldn't find her phone after the impact.

Nice, I like:  thats two with one hit. A Bangkok driver and a BMW both think they are invincible like Mercedes drivers.

Should have been 4,000 baht, 400 is just too low to change what needs to be changed!  The penalty wherever it might be must be sizable enough to deter such a thing from happening again in the future.  The police should have also determine as to the reason why she crashed into the pole instead of it being unanswered just to show you the police in Thailand have no training as to how to determine or obtain answers to any investigation. 

Phone texting might be a good start and elimination by asking for her phone.

 Should have been as in Switzerland ..

Pay according to his income or property;
many years ago a Swede had to pay a fine of one million Swiss francs for a great excess of speed because he is a billionaire in his country.

True, I guess if we were on a forum for Switzerland but we are talking about Thailand which 400 baht isn't going to deter a thing even for the poorest of the poor. Even 4000 baht would be too low even from my suggestion but you know how the Thais will whine which is the reason the police and government too scared to go higher thinking they are doing a good deed for the Thai people?

When the lady gets the car fixed if possible or a new one she will bring it to the temple have it blessed that will take care of any future accidents?😂
