British man launches Go Fund Me page to help with legal bills after fatal traffic accident in Thailand

Recommended Posts

Teaching English as a volunteer that’s a new one on me . I would assume his bike was insured so why is the insurance company paying up , at least he is not in prison looks like the de eased family will be looking for a far bigger sum of money as Thais think we farangs grow money in the back garden.

He's an English teacher but by the looks of the GoFundMe-page he's not a native speaker/writer. How does that work?

Likewise how does he get to wear a tag when foreigners are either bailed (££ /no tag) or held on remand?

Thx...one of the reasons I avoid as much as I can to drive a car or motorcycle here, a scary thought if it happens to you!

Just try not to kill anyone and you should be ok people tend to rely too much on insurance these days.

Money and an easy target by the sound of it 🤔

Not at all , for him to be arrested as he tried to leave means he was placed on immigration data base blacklist. I think he either not telling the truth or did not understand what was happening . He is also asking for legal fees yet stating money to pay the family

Not sure I'd go so far as to say he doesn't sound like a native speaker but for an English teacher he shows a shockingly poor grasp of punctuation and grammar. Maybe he was only teaching conversational English but I would pity any Thai taught to write English by him.

I agree.  He's really a plasterer.

200K if hit on the road by a farang and about half that (110K) if shot down in a shopping center by a Thai. Hmm..

 

I think the lesson to learn from this is always have around 250 - 500K put a side in case something like this should happen.

Always have between 1 and 3 million put away for emergencies..something like this for example..other legal stuff,health issues and repatriation if necessary.

 

Otherwise you're swingin' in the breeze.

As I understand the facts, the man was driving his motorbike and he hit a pedestrian who was crossing the road.

Where do you read this? From the article: "... driving safely but “could not avoid” the man" means for me, that the old man suddenly stepped out the street without looking (as usual in Thailand). No chance for the driver. 

He read it in the link to the Go Fund Me page, your interpretation of only what was reported in the OP is  irrelevant and wrong.
