A three handed driver, there's something you don't see every day.

It's amazing how people will spend 5-10k on a night out but penny pinch on transportation.

I haven't been on one of those death buses for years 

Me neither, and it took me the comment about seat belts to realize this. They never used to have them. I would be interested to hear one of the passenger's comments as to the driving style. I use a taxi and sometimes have to complain about speed and phone use.

That driver had no idea how to control a skid, he'd be hopeless on snow or ice, if he'd turned into the skid he could probably have retained control.....it's a training thing..

Throw in the fact that it's very likely the tyres tend to be over inflated in many cases and checked using the standard pressure checker ( attached )

blow-outs are quite common.

Amazingly that's a picture of a Hanwag hiking boot from the 1990's, I know because I have a pair. They are one of the best quality hiking boots made anywhere in the world.

speeding on bald tires.  Never a good idea

 

and over-inflated tires as usual.
The manufacturer data Isuzu says 29 PSI for the four wheels of my pickup;
well even at the isuzu dealer I have to check that they do not put me 40 PSI as they have very bad habit everywhere .

 

They were lucky (in their misfortune);
burst rear tire it looks like this on a pickup that was, in my opinion, overloaded (as usual)

Probably no safety belts plus driving too fast, straight to Bangkok Pattaya where the hospital can make max profit

What do you suggest? Leave them bleeding out at the roadside?

False.

At that speed he was metal on roadway.

One cannot reset control of that size/weight van.

I disagree! If he'd blown a front tyre I might agree.

Luckily the Van has full triple A insurance and the tourists will receive full free medical care and financial compensation payment or am i too optimistic?
