If a foreigner is involved it can make the English language press.

Please.

 

Just reacting to a post in which you claim that this only made the news because a foreigner was involved. Yes, that is true as far as the foreign media are concerned.

Clearly, the arrow 'points' to the one at fault here? Could I also suggest that that damage to the vehicle was 'post incident', being rear end damage, by the driver...  😉

Have a wonderful day, be safe out there.......

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

 



 

You're talking nonsense. The vast majority of accidents that are reported on this forum do not involve foreigners.

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

It amazes me how often this droplet of insipidness is spouted on this forum...

You're wrong, despite your long three years of being here and two accidents, it is not always the farang who is blamed.  To say that it is, is ridiculous.  

 

It's not just me that knows better in this case, I'm sure it's you also who knows that your claim is nonsense.  And, yes, I have had personal experience of accidents here and I wasn't blamed.

It's all from my and my friends experiences what I said. 

But if I say 99% foreigners are to blame even not them fault. Happy? 555

 

You're still wrong and now quoting some daft made up stat !!...99% of foreigners are to blame ?? - Thats still absolute rubbish and is a claim made by 'noobies' or those propping up a bar and continuing to perpetuate the same old idiotic myths about Thailand while never actually experiencing anything....

If the Western lady pulled out in front of the Mini-van then then a charge or reckless driving is quite normal. 

 

Additionally, while the charge of reckless driving seems extreme for many of us, in Thailand it is an incredibly common charge directed at the person deemed to be the cause of the accident - its so common that its hardly mentioned, I think the fine is 400 baht.

Not really big news is it?

 

Looking at car certainly not a high speed collision "just a bit of a bump"

Fair enough shes foreign she pulled out 

Why didn't/couldnt  the van "pilot"  brake and avoid?

It not like its an unusual occurrence for someone to pull out of a sideroad without looking in Thailand!!!

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

Speed limit, what speed limit? the majority of drivers here have 2 speeds fast and very fast, if she pulled out of side turning and got hit it's her fault end of, insurance will sort out providing they both have insurance!

I got hit at a u turn by a lad on a moped going well over 80kph(he admitted this to the police) because he was travelling straight and I was turning it was my fault and I had to pay, this was in the early hours, at the police stn for meeting they obviously switched drivers as the supposed driver walked in injury free followed by uncle with injuries, they sat in front of me laughing and sharing out the money, I had extensive road rash plus a shoulder that after 2 yrs is now 99% better, my experience of how you get taken advantage of.

Couldn't agree more. I got swiped by a concrete truck on the dreaded Patong Hill along with the Missus and my trusty Honda Wave. Shoulder reconstruction and various stitches and gravel rashes all paid by the driver and/or his insurance. A Thai guy actually chased the driver down and effectively carried out a citizens arrest on the cement truck driver.
