I often see bike riders not check traffic. When at a intersection they just try and turn onto

the little motorcycle lane, with checking. The thing is car and truck drivers often 

use that small lain to move over when driving slow or drunk or sleepy. 

It is a dangerous thing to just keep moving without checking traffic first.

 

Thai drivers are a funny thing, they just can't stand to see an 

open slot in traffic. They have to have it even if they are going turn

 in 100 meters.

Road space must never be wasted. 

 

You know I have never seen a cop stop a car for running a light

 or going to fast or any of 20 other driving infractions.

Thailand has traffic laws but they seem to only come into play

 in assigning blame after an accident.

Even tho the girl on the motorbike was not paying attention, The driver in the truck seems to have intentionally made contact with the motorbike.

So the girl on the bike was clearly not paying attention and in the wrong, but why did the car driver make no attempt at all to move across or brake to avoid the collision?

 

Daft question I guess - this is Thailand, BLDM - Bikers Lives Don't Matter.

..two 'air-heads' collided in cyber-space..just a ripple.

Look at the road, there are clear paint markings on the road, and if a motorcycle driver would have crossed like that in my home country the driver would have lost his/her drivers license, in UK the driver would have lost 3 points and a fine, in India 1000 Rupee and up to 3 month prison time...
Then we have people who have been in Thailand too long and think that the car driver is doing something wrong... when the one driving the motorcycle is breaking the rules and crossed a no cross area and entered the lain at a point, about 50m before the road markings shows that she can cross between the lains, and caused the accident.

Sure, there are many bad drivers out there, but I would not say that this car driver is a bad driver. It's 4 seconds from when I see the motorcycle until the collision, and the average reaction time for breaking is 2.3 seconds... and that for an object that appears right in front of you!

 

My Thai colleague pointed out that the road the motorcycle came from does not allow motorcycles, so she was in the wrong before she even got to the car.

I wasn't there, don't know anyone that was, I didn't inspect the mechanical aspects of the car and didn't interview the driver or witnesses. It's been years since I investigated a traffic accident in my country of origin, and certainly never did one in Thailand.

 

That being said, many seem to know many answers by the power watching a mere video and could apply for a know-it-all work permit. I'm happy I wasn't involved and that no one seemed to have been injured or killed.

Car driver should also have used the horn some seconds before the impact, to: "give audible warning of approach".

 

Unfortunately only used it post "incident" and, as many do, to: "vent anger and annoyance upon another road user".

 

It's designed purpose now apparently lost in Thailand..........erm.......and elsewhere.

That's what they were in the handbag for.......she has that sort of near calamity every day.

 

Learn to ride safely, or carry spare underwear?

 

A no-brainer for a young Thai female.
