PHUKET: A woman expat is to be charged with reckless driving causing injury and damage to property after she pulled out of a side street in Rawai leading to a van carrying tourists ramming into the side of her car.

 

The accident occurred in front of a small guesthouse on Wiset Rd, about 200 metres north of the main Rawai market, at about 11:30am, Chalong Municipality rescue workers told The Phuket News.

 

One foreign woman travelling in the passenger van suffered injuries to her right shoulder, while the other woman driving the car also suffered minor injuries, rescue workers reported.

I drive along that road at least twice a day it happens often people just pull out the worst is they come from the opposite side of the road where the U-turns are especially at night them markets attract a lot of traffic

Surely this is just a matter for the insurance companies to settle ?

Probably yes. In accidents it is sop to charge a guilty part, fine probably 1,000 Baht, can be negotiated down to 500.

 

Nothing new or special here, just SOP.

If This was a Thai driver this would not be news would it?! It would not be in the paper or the online feeds. 

 



 

It it was a Thai driver it would be in the Thai language news. The driver was not Thai, so in the not Thai language news.
