Most Thai drivers have no idea what a zebra crossing means. You take your life in your own hands using one.

Thai society is not mature enough to have ‘zebra crossings’ the reliance on everyone to ‘do the right thing’ is too much and those crossing the road are too vulnerable - I agree with those posters so

Totally agree they just give unwary pedestrians a false sense of security.

You can tell by the different door colours, it is not the first time this vios has had an accident!! 

Driving like that there was going to be an accident soon anyway, shame it was the schoolgirl crossing the road that took the hit and not a concrete pillar!

They see Zebra Crossing, as if the Finish Line to a Race! 

 

A Zebra Crossing is a 24/7 prescribed zone of zero tolerance... there are no options! 

 - if someone is on the Crossing, then you Stop for them;

 

and if another car approaching the Lines Stops in front of you

 - NO, he is Not Brake Checking You, for you to speed Around him, swearing at him with your head turned to look at that other drivers eyes...

to take over in an ever increasing frenzy

It is a shame that they lost their daughter at the hands if an irresponsible fool.

Little bit premature..........unless there has been further developments?

Come to think of it, when I watched the training video at DoT last week there was no mention at all about how a driver should approach or behave at zebra crossings.... and I DID pay full attention.

where & when did/does it read, that she died? 

 

but then , if she dies at hospital, it was not a death at the roadside; therefore the death would not be Tallied up as a road death...
