Thai caption: Turning in front in the middle of the road

 
Stills from dash cam footage published by 77kaoded showed a green and yellow taxi cut in front of a Toyota Fortuner driven by a Japanese man in the Bang Phra area of Sri Racha yesterday. 
 
Yohei Shuto, 35, did not appear to be injured but his car hit a barrier and was smashed in at the front. 
 
The taxi driver fled the scene in the confusion. 
 
Police said the driver had attempted to make a U-turn by turning across the Fortuner from the central lane. The Fortuner was in the far right lane and had to swerve to avoid a collision. 
 
The accident happened near the Bang Phra market yesterday in the late afternoon.

Bangkok taxi drivers are the most honest in the whole world .... 

If I get in a taxi and leave my rolex, my wallet with credit cards, my bag with 2,000,000 baht cash in it, if I forget it all and leave it on the back seat I don't worry in the slightest ....   I know it will all be returned in a couple of hours.

Do you come to Chiang Mai often?

the taxi driver's maneuver was <deleted> for sure, but who else is surprised? i wonder how fast the japanese driver was going. 500% awareness required on the road - 100% for yourself and 100% each for the vehicles in front, behind, and on both sides.

600%. You forgot the need for predictive ability.

Taxis and the like are the worst ! That’s a common practice whilst on the wheel, luckily he wasn’t half asleep as most of them are swinging from right to left or just occupying two lanes, is just a standard practice in Thailand, so please stay always fully alert and particularly watch out for the blind spots since the two wheel taxi riders will surely ride across the lanes through the traffic or against the traffic as it often happens. There’s no traffic laws either regulations not to mention physical police to enforce any of it so again please do stay alert, roll your eyes and try to avoid the danger which can happen at any given moment on the roads !
