Krabi school 'bus' spews students all over road like cabbages (video)

As I have said a hundred times on this forum Thais have no respect or duty of care for their children what parent would let a child travel to school with an incompetent driver with no training whatsoever and in a vehicle that is designed for carrying goods not people and no seat belts or restraints in the vehicle much safer just to walk the children to school or drive them yourself.

Yes .. you have said " ... a hundred times on this forum Thais have no respect or duty of care for their children "

And each and every time, many of us find it offensive and inappropriate.

And I am being polite using those words.

Un effin believable! They were just lucky that the oncoming pickup driver swerved to the left and hit the front end... Think the driver of the black pickup, taking over the school taxi just before it turned is to blame as well since he - during his stupid maneuver (stupid assuming that the school taxi guy indicated where he was going) - blocked the view of the school taxi driver before he turned... However, by the looks of it - a crash that could easily have been avoided by driving responsibly and with foresight, but Thai can't do sad.png

foresight in Thailand....cheesy.gifclap2.gifcheesy.gif

Both drivers must be blind, but one carrying school kids should be sent to jail for that. He must have seen car coming and still turned.

The black pick up was at ;least partially obstructing the view of the oncoming car and that U/right-turn was just completely reckless, esp. with a bunch of kids in the car.

Just Thailand being Thailand. Nothing to see here folks.

And this accident will change absolutely nothing for anyone. Even if all of the kids died in this accident there would be no review of the system or any lessons learnt.

Yes this is not unusual I see every day in Chiang Mai trucks overloaded carrying School Children driving Crazy par for the course

OMG - how crazy do many Thai drivers have to be. To risk kids like that is "criminal"! The turning driver needs some immediate "attitude adjustment" training. coffee1.gif

Hope the children all make a full recovery (from adults stupidity)!

I know that the carrying of children like that is not up to "Western" standards but the driving behaviour should be better. TITS

Here was another accident waiting to happen. A total lack of safety awareness by the school, the driver and the kids. These people live on a different planet. And my wife was in a school pick-up which crashed and a kid was killed, and that was nearly 40 years ago. Nothing ever changes.

OK, children are safe, for this time, but the driver will continue tomorrow to drive like this like everyday. You can see on the video, the children are not shocked, only walk to home.

For info, This cannot happen even in Indonesia, as a pick up cannot be licensed to carry ANY passengers.

The kids very lucky, the kids driver obviously no training & possibly no drivers licence,If he has should be taken off him.

He is a bird brain like 50% of other drivers
