Thai road dangers: Iron girder pierces car from rear window to the console

Metal girder pierces car (from the rear window to the engine)

 
A Thai driver had a narrow escape from serious injury or even death when an iron girder came loose and pierced his car from the rear window to the front console. 
 
Sanook said it appeared that a pick-up carrying the girders had braked suddenly propelling the three to four meter long girder forward. 
 
The scary pictures of the damaged Toyota Avanza were widely shared on Thai social media.
 
Poster "Dave Natthaphon" said: "Keep away from vehicles transporting such things".

Action movie producers should seriously consider shooting their stunt scenes in Thailand.. Minimum, if not zero, cost..

sometimes there's a bit of cloth tied on to warn unwary drivers. Needless to say there's no police action.

If there is a piece of cloth , it is probably legal?

To be legal, I think the requirement might be more than just "a piece of cloth".

Logic would say (I know, TIT) that even Thai law must state that a load must be properly secured.

We might find that identifying a stopped/broken down vehicle is the law and that half a tree is deemed sufficient.

never see loads tied down properly here, they usually just get workers to sit on top of them instead, always seeing loads falling off. Its a total joke the way they fail to secure loads or simply over load and the police to stuff all to stop it, back handers they get are more important than any accidents it causes

Move on! Nothing to see here. We do not care about simple things like this. Nobody got hurt or died, so just move on.

Just a small accident. It´s not easy to fully secure all load, with a pea brain attached to the shoulders that also happened to be out of battery.

And for the soon to start sugar cane season: expect an overloaded truck to tilt over on you.
