These are the most idiotic U-turns to begin with.  

What genius thought it was a good idea to U-turn into the fast lane on the other side to begin with?

Show this situation to a nanny state resident (Nutbush?).

Eight lane high speed highway dividing populated area/town.

No speed limit enforced, no lights.

Brainless, careless. Here they still worship free race for free Thais (on four wheels).

Wonder how many have died over the years.

Not much different from the frigging dangerous ride on Sukhumvit Pattaya.

Pitch dark...turn on to an on-ramp to access a major hwy...there sat a motorcycle with Thai male heading in the wrong direction with no lights on.

 

It was his lucky day...I missed him by inches...did not see him soon enough to avoid a possible tragedy...still angers me...this insane idea that motorbike operators do not have to follow the rules of the road...

cheating death seems to be her favorite past-time. after narrowly escaping one lane, she does the exact same thing on the other. not to diminish her stupidity though, that pick-up with the tall load also had no business driving that fast. that area has city limits (50kph), but hey speed limits are merely prescriptive and are rarely followed.

This the very reason I have dash-cams in my Car and on my Motorcycle.

 

The atrocious road design is also the reason for many of the accidents and compounded by ineffective policing.

 

The speeds at which the traffic is passing though this town is also a major factor.

 

 

All of these traffic flaws can be improved upon with relative ease if those in the correct positions were bothered enough to do something about it.

 

Lack of budget is probably a major factor, however, the BiB could make a killing in fines if they just got up and did something.

The stupidity started the moment she drove down the wrong way

No doubt in a hurry to get to the next life

The stupidity started when she got on the motorcycle .

They do have to but choose not to, shame you missed  him, but somebody else will succeed for sure.

Several pick-ups were forced to come to a sudden halt and take evasive action as the motorcyclist crossed the road and tried to nip around a barrier.

Lucky escape this time around, seems she'll live to die another day.

I'm rather disappointed that she didn't kill herself when she tried so hard to do so. Only a matter of time until she gets it right, I'd guess. Someone that stupid really can't be expected to survive for much longer.

The reason for the 80% FATALITY RATE for motorcycles is very clear .

They have to continue that way, keep the statics high.

No further comments.

When you come from a western country, got your driving lecence after exercise for more than 1 year, and have to renew your license in Thailand, sitting in the classroom to see stupid movies, while everybody sleeping.....

What can I say more?

U turns are death traps. More traffic lights needed. Roundabouts have their place too, however, because Thais drive so poorly they don't know how to use them. Speed kills. Both Traffic Lights and Roundabouts would help to decrease dangerous speed especially in urban areas where most of the U turns are problematic

Problem is because of her stupidity innocent people could have been killed. She needs naming and shaming and banning from driving. Highly likely she had no driving license. Complete idiot.
