Presumably she was sitting in the passenger seat, so its not surprising she's dead if you at the mess she made of the truck as left through the window.

A seatbelt would have probably saved her life

My Thai MIL refused to wear a seat belt (she explained she does not use them). So I replied no seat belt no ride. A few weeks ago my wifes cousin died when she was thrown out of her pick up driven by her husband. Another four month old girl who will not have the chance to say Mummy. Probably the father will disapear and leave the children with the poor grandparents.

RIP,

lack of airbags, seat belts not used, children un restrained, people carried in the beds of pick ups, the list is endless, road safety is well down the list of priorities 

You forgot the main problem The Incompetent Drivers.

You can blame the government, to a certain extent.

 

Lack of information about the importance of seatbelts filtering down to the masses. Lack of adequate enforcement are the obvious ones. But also, lack of effective policies. 

 

Think of most modern cars - Annoying beeping sounds will alarm when someone sits in the drivers or passenger seat without a seat-belt. Why not in locally assembled pickups ???? - because its not a Thai law. 

 

Even worse, why do these same alarms on exist for the rear seats, even in the EU ??? - because the governments have not legislated for that. In this modern age alarms for the rear seats something we really should have in every vehicle. Why not? bottom line, cost. 

 

 

 

 

Would be better if the car didnt start until you lock the seat belt

Perhaps if EVERY motoring infraction meant the vehicle was impounded for 1 month and the driver banned for a minimum of 3 months the message might just get through to those with no brains

The pickup will be in the panel shop for atleast 6months anyways.

They still find it somewhat "funny" when I urge passengers to buckle up.

I once showed the granddaughters videos about seat bealt vs. no seat belt.

I doubt I could convince them. Amulets are more effective.

From the "education" videos at the DLT I can not remember a scene of buckling up.

I'm one and that's not my view. Or are you referring to a certain nationality of truck driver? In which case that isn't restricted to trucks.

 

The ones blowing out black smoke to show off their <deleted> rides are capable to outrun a Ferrari! 😂

Why does the EU carmakers produce public road cars that mostly exceed 200kmh?  Seems a bit irresponsible?

If you remember the original post, the "1st one" was airbags. So many vehicles on the road don't have these as they're an older vehicle and they were not standard at the time. Please read full string for relevance.
