Motorbike crash: Adnan Lotia was on the Thai holiday island of Koh Phangan when he died

 

An entrepreneur was killed in a motorcycle crash a day after arriving on a holiday island in Thailand.

 

Adnan Lotia, 36, from Northolt, was managing director of Theatre Tickets Direct, an online marketplace for West End shows.

 

A keen sportsman, he had travelled to Koh Phangan for three weeks of boxing training after which he was due to attend a cricket tournament in Phuket. But he was injured in a crash on the island on March 27 and died that day.

are there statistics about the number of Thais killed on Thai roads vs. foreigners and then if possible, broken down by nationalities?

 

I expect these figures would give some insights.

As it is bad for tourism, no, there are no real statistics published.

Before or after they changed.?
10 years ago they showed everyone who died in traffic, that was not good for business.
Now if you die in hospital after accident, you didn't die in traffic accident.

Because tourists think that riding a bycycle back home is the same as a moped.
Introduce thousands of mopeds in the West at 10 bucks a day and watch the tourists bury themselves

Mopeds are 50cc and have peddles; I have yet to see one in Thailand.

 

'Chicken-chasers' are 120+cc and are full-on motorbikes.

I found the file I was thinking about and it is a data set of deaths of US citizens abroad: not all foreigners in Thailand, just Americans everywhere! 2002 to 2015
