Suthisan police and rescue services were called to an area near klong Bang Sue on Rachada Road in Huay Kwang, Bangkok last night after an electrical engineer was killed.

 

Twenty six year old Bunrit Phumprasert was putting out cones for electrical cable burying work on behalf of his company JNC Engineering Jacking.

 

He had a fractured skull and was lying on the road ten meters from a Mercedes Benz E-250 that had damage to its front windshield.

 

Behind the wheel was lecturer Weeda Satyarom who Daily News reported as working at the faculty of business administration at a well known university.

 

She appeared to be drunk but told police that she wasn't and that she would take care of everything.

 

Police ignored this and breathalyzed her finding that she had an alcohol reading of 133, more than two and a half times over the legal limit. 

 

She was charged with negligent driving causing death and DUI.

Thailand has many laws/rules and regulations the implementation of these is a different matter

These kinds of opinions say one thing to me: you've experienced Thailand through bar-girls, motorcycle & taxi drivers, waitresses and Thai working-class families. And even if that is not true, it'

Hence the remark to the police, "Don't worry. I will take care of everything."

People protested and the police backed down. Might have been late 90s, but its all a blur...

Not having her windscreen blacked out might have helped her in seeing him.

To do this is obviously quite stupid, but does Thailand even have a law against it?

Did anyone read that this young lady is the actual owner of this car?

 

Probably the "Dean's" car.

Maybe she has a well paid side line or else somebody may have some explaining to do as to why this lady was driving this car.

Maybe it's a legitimate family car?

There are multiple facets involved here. 

 

Safety in the work place: The Engineer putting out cones was doing so without watching out for traffic and without measures in place to prevent an idiot in a car from mowing him down. The ‘company’ are partly to blame for not ensuring the safety of its workers (I know par for the course here - life is cheap). 

 

The primary facet with this incident is of course the nationwide attitudes towards the acceptable of drink driving. 

Law enforcement regarding this issue is a complete farce and purely reactive. Beyond the law enforcement issue is the social acceptance of someone getting drunk and driving.

Friends and peers will have known this lady is getting in her car and mentioned nothing, no social judgement or pressure not to put the lives of innocent road users (pedestrians) at risk. 

 

We all write this off as ‘This is Thailand’... it is unfortunate that while Thailand is a fantastic place, in aggregate it is so heavily marred with a total and utter reluctance to accept responsibility for anything, this facet of the Thai mindset is prevalent through all socio-demographics of Thai society and is the primary contributing factor to unnecessary innocent deaths. 

 

A tragic shame that this cause and effect is so obvious yet so many are willing to take notice. 

They certainly never took a class on road safety on road works like the West

Many years ago a law was brought in covering the limit to which car windows could be blacked out.   Performing artists, who needed to change in moving vehicles while being transported (at least, I hope they were being transported) to their next venue, complained bitterly.

Though they needn't have bothered as it was later reported that the police had just 4 density measuring guns in the whole country.

Very young lecturer and already driving a Benz?

As far as I know, UNI jobs don't paid that well.

 🤔Maybe she has a rich sugar daddy! 🙄

as a Uni Lecturer, and trying to say she was not drunk...

- is a warped parody from that she Professes to be in full charge of her Faculty?
