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?   🤔 

Probably all at fault.

Maybe she got her first driving license in Thailand.
That would be a mitigating circumstance.

 

 Many Chinese drive on the right side of the road in Thailand
they almost rammed me at least three times.

So, happy to read that you once again found a way to blame Thailand and the Thais for a foreigners mistake.

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.

That assumes that she bothered to look.

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

 

Ok, so you agree it would be in the Thai news.

Thanks.

No, that´s totally incorrect. What you are stating is just adding a second mistake. The post you quoted said "if you can see" and "should", and had nothing to do with ignorance of not bother to do the right thing.

Sorry I said that, my mistake. Given the severity (lack of),  of the accident  - NO. However if someone had video of it when it happened  a fifty fifty chance it would make it in. Still not a lock as not that violent of collision and no fights afterwards. 

 

That is based on what local thai put up on their sites where i live now. Wants some action???

 

Hit and run from Sunday  Can you identify. ?

I actually ride that HWY, take that cut off, to Festival mall. Once a week ?! Yeah, sounds about right. I'm a cycle driver too, I would say I am far more aware and & safety conscious than that driver. It was not his fault but when you have truckers who bark at the moon, out on the HWY's, you risk your life every time you drive. 

 

The Holiday season is coming up. It may be a Festivus for the Rest of Us, but not for that cycle driver.

Again, not Phuket. Totally unrelated to this topic.

25 years driving here, not a single accident.  That's perfect, you're right!

And you think that, somehow, that makes you different from hundreds of thousands, probably millions, of Thais who have never had a accident?
