Average breaking time 2.3 seconds.... really.

Saw the motorbike for 4 seconds .... anticipation / reading the road.

the driver did not see the motorcyclist for 4 seconds because she was playing candy crush on her mobile

I think this video clearly illustrates the reason why there are more daily average traffic deaths than the total covid19 deaths in this country.

From what I can see in the video it seems clear the girl was trying to take a shortcut to her far left.........something I would not have anticipated had I been the driver in that car.  I see this sort of thing all the time in Thailand and occasionally in the US.

Hey 2 women drivers met in the road way. No hair pulling, no punches, and

no fight. Other than read end damage, looks like a pretty tame accident to me.

Sarcasm.  Was the contents of the bag in preparation for this incident.

Glad no one was seriously injured.

Geezer

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.

There was a blue pick up coming on the left side of the car, for the car to move over could have caused a bigger crash.

Renewed my car D L yesterday and sat through 1 hr. of this on vid, on leaving, within 10 min of driving 2 M/C had done similar maneuvers. Nothing will ever change here in my lifetime.

..... but that still leaves the option of braking.  I do believe that the Thai car driver's view of motorcycles is that the car should never slow or divert their path for a bike, as car drivers are more important than bike riders.

 

Anyone who rides in Thailand will have noticed this phenomenon.

Bet she's going to need that clean underwear after pulling a stunt like that. 😂

My thought as well. I also re-read the article to check the color of her trousers and I note khaki, not brown!!

Didn't look while merging and didn't even look after being hit,but was conscious enough to take off from the scene like a rocket. Amazing cognitive skill!.....motorbike -1 / car -0
