A scene of utter devastation greeted Thamenchai police and rescue services after a car being driven by a Bangkok man collided head on with a municipal authority pick-up on the Buriram to Lampraimat road in Buriram, north east Thailand yesterday evening.

 

Dead in a Honda was 38 year old Minburi man Nopparat. Also deceased in an overturned Isuzu was Thamenchai municipal authority worked Worawuth. His colleague Nitaya was injured.

 

The accident happened near KM marker 97 by a chicken farm.

 

Two other vehicles were damaged and their drivers injured after they piled into the debris.

 

Locals said they saw the Bangkok car try to overtake and collide head on with the Isuzu coming in the opposite direction heading towards Buriram. The other two pick-ups were following the municipal vehicle and could not avoid the debris.

Better to be late in this world than early in the next !

 

Thai drivers always seem to have this inability to judge speed and distance of oncoming traffic, resulting in another tragic loss on the highway.

Driving school should also be compulsory and the courses offered there be correlated with the different Highway Codes of European countries which are in fact very similar.
Let them learn for example why a turn that can easily be taken at 80 an hour is limited to 60 ..
it is not to annoy motorists but quite simply because the visibility is low and does not allow to stop safely if the speed is higher than so many km / h;
if you have 40 meters of visibility, an obstacle can very well obstruct the road at 41 * meter; how fast will you avoid getting into the obstacle?

No Thai knows it; so it rolls at 80 in the bend and boom ...

because with 40 meters of visibility the maximum speed must be a little more than 60 km / h;
easy to do the math;
the stopping distance is equal to the square of the first or two digit (s);
at 30 km / h stopping distance = 9 m (3 x 3)
at 60 km / h, it will be 36 meters (6 x 6)
at 120 km / h it will be 144 meters (12 x 12)

and all that good on dry road with good tires, of course not in overload ...
because on wet roads we will double the braking distances;

Not much left of that car.

it must be worth its weight in the scrap yard; that is to say at 6 or 7 baht per kg

driving school doesn't stop stupid

Of course not ;
but behind the compulsory driving school there must be a real, a real driving test and not what exists at the moment in Thailand. A kid of 8 years, one-legged and having only one eye will succeed the exam ...
Examination with sworn examiners; but do they know, in thailand, what "sworn" means;
it means that you are going before a judge to swear an oath that you will do your job without departing from even a millimeter of the Law.
I stop dreaming, it will never happen in Thailand.
