PHETCHABURI: -- Fourteen South Korean tourists on their way to Hua Hin were taken to hospital after a smash involving their bus and three other vehicles last night.

 

The crash occurred in wet weather conditions.

 

The tour bus ended up on its side next to the Petchkasem Highway between kilometer markers 151 and 152 in the Hua Saphan sub district, reorts Daily News.

 

One pick-up truck ended up in a channel leading to a U-turn while another was on its side by the road. A large truck was parked on the left side of the road.

 

The Korean victims were all taken to Prajormklao Hospital.

 

This was reported by Daily News from a Twitter source. There was no indication of the seriousness of the injuries of the tourists or others who were involved in the accident.

what is it - one or two serious bus accidents on a daily basis in Thailand, in the west you'd be pushing hard for one a year

nothing to do with anything, vehicles don't crash because of weather conditions, they crash because the driver is not allowing for and showing no consideration for the conditions, it is 100% his fault

 

PS - only for social media (twitter) we would have heard nothing about this

It's about time the Government implemented a serious course and driving test for coach drivers, on par with European standards, make it expensive; a serious investment for anyone who wants to be a coach driver, and confiscate licenses when the drivers exhibit dangerous driving behaviour...... ohhh wait, sorry, I just woke up, must've been dreaming again..... it's but a circus run by clowns and chauffeured by gibbons.

There's all kinds of safety measures that could be implemented: drug-testing of all transport employees, mandatory driver training for transport workers; bringing highways and roads up to international standards; limiting continuous driving hours with enforcement by inspection stations; higher licensing standards for commercial and public transport drivers; better policing; higher fines and penalties to drivers, vehicle owners and employers; speed limiter devices; GPS tracking, etc.

 

I could go on and on, as all of these have been put to use in the west.  But, let's face it.  This is Thailand, they don't want to be the west, and want to do things their own way.  I guess senseless carnage on the roads will be the Thai way.

That is right. I my home country we got shitty weather 1/2 of time and there are very very accidents with buses and if there are, it's small fender benders.
