PATTAYA: -- At 11am, on the morning of December 22, Pattaya police received reports of an accident involving a school coach and a car driven by a British expat.

 

At Baan Nongpungkae, Sukhumvit Road, the coach had front-end damage whilst a black Mitsubishi Pajero, driven by sixty-one year old Brit Mr John Dorake, was heavily damaged on the right-hand side.

 

Mr Chamnan Tipkaew, a forty-five year old coach driver said he was taking forty students from the local Personnel Development Institution to the Yannasangwararam Temple in Bangkok when the Pajero pulled out from a side soi and across his path.

 

Fortunately nobody has been seriously injured.

Only Thais have the magical ability to pull into traffic without looking. Westerners unfortunately need to look both ways.

They walk out of buildings into sidewalk traffic without stopping or looking too.

Yes quite a lot of foreigners take on Thai driving habits and its quite clear the Brit was in the wrong here. Thankfully nobody is injured and I am sure he is insured. Just a fine and the rest is an insurance thing. I hope that the guy learned from his experience.
