It must have been a well-embedded sign to cause that much damage to the vehicle.  Perhaps some speed was involved.

I wonder if there's any street in the world that is home to more accidents than Thepkasattri Road, especially in the early hours! Fortunately this idiot didn't kill or injure anyone.

How many tests are still needed to prove the validity of the laws in this country?

they should erase all Stop lines, Pedestrian lines etc - and repainted them at 90 degrees from the current... 

 

all traffic will then be hesitant to rush over the lines, for fear of being run over by pedestrians! 

 

i.e it is the 'crossing over' the lines that gives the locals some sort of adrenalin rush - the opposite of White Line fever
