Strap on the helmet not used?

 

See it all the time in Jomtien/Pattaya.

 

Conforms with the law but you might as well not have it on.

 

Anyhow, RIP.

How can somebody, even with poor knowledge about driving or no driver license at all, suddenly just strike a roadside barrier. Like I always said. Don´t drive blind!
Anyway, I feel sorry for he´s friend and possible family.

Come on. No evidence of drinking.
Some people don't have experience on the bikes and really have no business being on one. It isn't a toy you just play with on occasion.
Many circumstances can lead to a crash.

Business or no business is not a question for this man anymore, but he was a good driver. LOL

I am surprised there are not way more accidents by tourists on motorbikes.

 

Yesterday a typical example, four Chinese couples riding passed on bikes taking selfies, not a helmet between them, looking at the camera and not at the road.

 

Scary.

I was told about this by my taxi driver today. He said the Italian guy just slammed into the railing and that so many tourists die here because they don't understand Thai roads and all the police are interested in is money, not safety.

I understand that if I slam into just about anything on a motorbike, on any road anywhere the result will not be good, as many others have found out to their detriment before this poor chap

i fail to see the connection between someone driving their bike into a crash barrier and the police wanting money. perhaps you can explain how that works?
