After reading your answer I watch again, you are right without the motorbike most likely the small red car coud have sidestep the bus

Who would have had the nerve to sacrifice the motorbike rider?

Bike rider was overtaking yellow taxi

Red car was trying to overtake m/c, while m/c was trying to overtake yellow taxi.

 

Red car in the wrong, Bus driver in the wrong.

But as per your quote in an adjacent thread wasn’t this just being 'slightly naughty '? It’s not like anyone died or anything.....

In my opinion the red car hit by the bus is not doing much better, the motobike it is overtaking is in the middle of the lane and this red car is therefore moving too far to the right!

When a motorbike is in the middle of the lane unless it is empty opposite I do not overtake.

And they never keep proper distance. Simply because they never learned to drive properly.

Yeah I’m slightly concerned because we’re going with a van driver a good driver that we’ve used before and a few family members in the morning down to Khao Yai in a van only an over night trip only a two hour drive but I’ve never really driven out there that far before on New Years before and I know it’s a risk and I know it’s at least gonna be bumper to bumper probably most of the way. Last time I was on the road here on New Years was 2009 to 2010 before we moved here 5 years ago.

Wanchai, 40, the Altis ( my words, Red car driver), died in hospital.

The driver probably didn't read the "Drive slowly if drunk" sign!

Animals that allow these criminals to drive public transport should be punished!

certainly not condoning it in anyway but i doubt many commenting haven't driven over the limit here so can't really be too judgemental.

    But you are condoning it, by your statement you are basically saying everyone does it. I have never driven under the influence of alcohol, any alcohol. I was a tow truck operator/owner for most of my life and got sick and tired of seeing the aftermath of idiots who couldn't figure out that they shouldn't drink and drive.

I feel for the motorbike guy...I've seen a lot worse here....feel even more for the guy in the car.

Very sad and sorry. Simple fix is to make sure when the driver arrives for his shift and at the end of it he is given a breath test. If positive at start, he doesn’t do the shift and looses pay for that shift and if positive at the end they call the police. Seems like a pretty simple solution to me. Companies would need to keep records though.
