Pattaya: Locking the stable door after the horse has bolted! Barriers now in place

77kaoded reported on a picture from Pattaya News that showed a Mitsubishi four door pick-up that had driven into a trench in the road between central and south Pattaya. 

 

There are roadworks there as contractors bury cables.

The media said that barriers had been put in place after the accident.

 

Fortunately the driver of the pick-up, that had Bangkok plates, was not injured.

Being as proactive Safety measures (barriers, tape, fencing) are as non-existent as preventative maintenance in Thailand, the hospitals and ambulances should be pretty busy taking care of people on Beach Road viewing the Fireworks on the 29th and 30th of this month with all the open trenches, holes and broken pavement.

Driving through roadworks at Khao Yai today we were waved through by workers at a blind corner.    Nearly had a head on with a car coming the opposite direction who had also been apparently waved through.  Crash didn't eventuate, so mai pen rai.

For a culture so worried about damaging the almighty image, there is no shortage of preventable examples fostered by those "in charge".

I am sure the Pattaya city council will pay for the repair of the damaged pick-up as well as the downtime of the vehicle - or not?

Only after an incident is Health/Safety considered. NO POLICE EVER check red light runners; they are too busy milking the motorists for soft offences.  When a pick-up plows into a coach full of Chinese tourists, then there will be some hand-wringing.

 

Chonburi (Pattaya) is the 2nd most dangerous province in Thailand yet police merely coin in the money.
