Watching Thai TV News everyday, this is a common occurrence.

 

"WOMAN EXPAT" seems to be the focus of the article.

 

Wonder how many Thais are charged for the same infraction?   🤔 

 

Maybe they wrote it as it's so unusual :cheesy:

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.

 

Deflection. It would be in the thai news as one of the myriad of accidents every day, and no one would bother to look twice if at all, because little gore and no fight broke out. As for your post, perhaps a new spin, instead of the same tired out old deflections?! 

 

Cheers

Could be at fault, could be shared fault, if the other driver was going way over the speed limit. 

I don't think speed was a factor by the damage to the car it was a wonder anyone was injured

There's quite a few accidents like this daily, so besides this being an expat driver, why is this news?  Why didn't the van slow down and avoid hitting the car?  if he wasn't speeding, surely he would have been watching and able to avoid the collision.

 

I have idiots pull out in front of me all the time, but by driving proper speeds and paying attention, accidents are diverted on a daily basis.

Doesn't matter because farang involved the crash. It's always fault of farang. 

Nonsense.

looking at the damage the expat was at fault, why it isnt just an insurance job as these accidents usually are is beyond me and seems like over kill. If they are charging the driver then they should check if the injured woman in the van was wearing a seat belt, if not more charges should be laid on the passengers as well as the van driver otherwise this is just looks like a huge set up against expats, can we expect to see all the thais that cause accidents to be charged now as well

The phrase "woman expat" was used only once in the body of the report, how do you construe that as being "the focus of the article?

 

Why would you suggest that a Thai driver in a similar incident wouldn't be charged?

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

The only time Ive seen those mini bus vans NOT speeding was in red traffic lights.

 

i would like to guess this one was speeding too.

Well, if you can see oncoming traffic, you should let them pass before you enter the 'main road', no matter what speed they're doing.

Another faultless farang driver with perfect driving skills.  What a surprise.

 

"...but by driving proper speeds and paying attention, accidents are diverted on a daily basis".

Where do you "divert" your accidents to; to some other road user?

 

Using your logic, there should be no accidents anywhere as they would all be avoided if everyone could drive as well as you claim you can.

Why do you suggest that all Thais responsible for accidents are not charged?
