The Isuzu driver was trying to execute a U-turn and was coming back from a trip to a temple.

Correction, the driver was trying to execute all the passengers in the back of the pick-up.

how many times have we seen this , the drivers in this country think , once they pullout in front of you they are safe .

Does not matter how slow they are going , all they see is the road in front .

This happened near home. It is always a dangerous place as the U-turn is just over the crest of a hill on the 2 lane highway. There is also a 2 lane frontage road that gives access to a 7/11 and other shops.

 

I often stop at the 7/11 and have to go across the 4 lanes to turn right into my road. The speed that some cars come over the crest is amazing. Then you get those that make it a 2 lane U-turn from the outside lane of the highway.

There would have been a lot less people hurt IF the Cops had done their job and stopped people sitting in the cargo area of Utes and 6/10 wheel Trucks.

Why keep banging on about enforcement? Thai traffic police do what they are supposed to do, extort money from road users! Full stop!

Looks like video transfer skills about the same as driving skills🤔

Be fair, it was hard enough to find the Betamax machine

     The pick up driver obviously negligent in making such a turn, BUT, the Mazda driver appeared to be very slow in realising such a hazard was ahead, and any amount of braking seemed to be totally inadequate.

From watching this vid a few times the turning car showed no brake lights or indication so how could anyone have predicted such a stupid move or did i miss something ?
