Rice farmers have been warned to stop drying their crops on roads or face legal action.

 

The instruction was issued today by the Nakhon Ratchasima provincial justice officer after a fatal road accident on November 10 th on a highway in Tambon Makha, Non Soong district.

 

Two pickup trucks collided when the drivers tried to avoid driving over rice laid on the road surface to dry, resulting to two fatalities and two others being injuries.

 

Mr. Wichien Chaisorb, director of the Nakhon Ratchasima provincial justice office, paid a visit yesterday to the family of one of the dead victims, Mr. Nikhom Chitklang, to offer condolences and support.

down south they put prawns/fish on the roads to dry, for some reason they think that has priority to cars and bikes using them

What would Isan in November be without rice on the road :biggrin:

But even here they will not place on any major/frequented roads.

Another case of being wise after the event. 

The police have been seeing this sort of thing all over the country since time began , but as usual , it takes a couple of deaths before anything is done.

Will not have been the first , and it will definitely not be the last.

Will the culprits be charged with causing death by illegally obstructing the highway ?

My b/f drove thru some rice yesterday here.

 

It completely covered the road & could not be avoided. He shouted first at the woman tending the rice. She was a village chief's wife so thought she was above mere convenience of others. So he shrugged his shoulders & drove on thru ...

Too bad he wasn't driving a steamroller....

They have the same issue in the Philippines since the road is the only dry place available to layout out the rice often. But over there it is common practice to drive over the rice and the farmers expect this.
