Yes, the driver is in trouble with red plates after sunset. Quite some damage to the minibus by the m/bike. High speed hit.

He may get a 300 or 500 Baht fine, but that will be it.

 

Insurance is valid without problems.

Gosh this is the third article I have read today about folks being killed due to high speed driving and careless bad habits, driving here in Thailand is a nightmare, not pleasant at all...

Hence the reason I drive a crap car.... But gets me from A to B ...

"... the driver is in trouble with red plates after sunset".           In view of the more relevant and serious part of this report I think the red plate element is hardly an issue.

I noted an Italian guy was also killed when his Ducati ran off the road above Centara  just north of Karon.

Happened at about 5am, no helmet, bad road conditions there. 

 

RIP

Thinning the herd.

 

Fate works it way again.

Don't worry, if this is your day to die, no matter what you do, you will die... so do whatever you want to do.  Otherwise, if not, do whatever you want to do.crazy.gif

 

We see a commonality here..... huummmm.violin.gif

Please avoid driving at high speeds, in the case of collision, your name may drop a letter due to the huge impact. You have been warned! w00t.gif

 

 

So with regards to the accident, who is right and who is wrong? The article seems to put the driver at a negative stance, by using victim for the MC, and police taking the driver for questioning.

It was my idea and the witnesses statement, the MC is wrong? No?

I don't understand, a car make a turn and the motorbike smash to it, how can the damage be on the right side of the car  ???

The car makes the u-turn, so exposing it's right hand side. If the motorbike would try to outpace the car and pass it on the righthand side but fail, it would hit the right frontside of the car.
