It’s not a value of a life, just compensation to place responsibility and ease the pain of loss. Something that happens all over the world. Why do westerners constantly overthink things here to suit

Disgusting. Only about money for the deceased's family. Surely the authorities have a duty to punish reckless driving harshly as it is (or should be) a key component in reining in potential bad d

In any developed country it would have been 'Causing death by dangerous driving' and she would most likely recieve a sentence of 5-7 years in Jail for causing the deaths of two innocent people !

Not much of a deterrent against reckless driving. 

that surely is the real issue.  Whatever the rights and wrongs of blood money is irrelevant, but it is beyond question that current deterrents are woefully inadequate.

Did I read this right? The parents are happy with the outcome!!! 

And if she admitted fault they wouldn't have to go to court to ask for compensation?? 

If my kid was killed I couldn't care less about the money.

looks like the drowned peoples car cut off drove into the other car and fell upside down into the water thus flooding passenger compartment fast. not known if seatbelts were on. if not maybe head/neck injuries first. she could have called for help and maybe people on the street could have tried to rescue the occupants. you would need something to break the windows and the ability to swim if alone.  the black car could have also fell into the canal

The Honda CRV was not in the turning lane but was making a right hand turn across the fast lane and with no turn signal lights on. I wonder who was the real victim in this accident.

That "outside" lane is actually the shoulder, but very poor road markings, esp at night.  Most people turning right there would use the shoulder.  also, the concrete railing was in need of repair & gave way too easily.  What should have been a regular "shunt" involving 2 at fault cars turned into 2 deaths, from bad driving by both parties.  Why did the CRV continue with the turn into the bridge railing?  Or not brake harder?  Prosecution probably only went ahead because "celebs" involved.

1 million baht is what I make per hour. Literally. 1 million baht is a tiny fine for killing two people. An absolute disgrace! What is to Incentivize people to obey the law when all you have to do is pay a small fine to get out of trouble? I’m well aware that murder in Thailand is a 1 million baht fine ( know of a guy that committed 12 and paid 12 x 1 million baht fines ) but one would think that with a public case like this, they would have set the fine to at least 30 million baht. At least.

BS
