Dash cam footage has been posted on Facebook that shows a foreign tourist on a big bike without a helmet smashing into Thais on a motorcycle on the Koh Samui ring road.

The footage reveals that the foreigner undercuts the car with the dash cam then swerves out from behind a pick-up. Sanook said that he then collided with two Thais who were waiting to turn right.

Officer Parinya Raksakaew of Bo Phut police said that the foreigner had driven negligently and was also in the wrong for not wearing a helmet.

Three people were left injured on the roadway after the accident in the Lamai area of the holiday island. Sanook said it was lucky that the injured were not run over by other cars.

Police urged all rental shops on the island to only rent bikes to people with licenses and to insist on helmet wearing.

The footage was on a Thai page entitled "Nai Sai Sing Team".

That sort of stupidity on the roads happens everyday here, the nationality is irrelevant.  

 

The focus should not be on the nationality, whether Thai of foreign,  but how such accidents can be best avoided in the future.

 

Unfortunately it will probably just end up in the usual blame game.

Right up the arse of the car. Pulls out to overtake around a corner at speed. Note yellow line. No overtaking. See it all the time. Really bad. No bikesmanship at all just point an go

What a total a$$h0!e... This is exceptionally careless and dangerous riding...  

 

It angers me that people can ride (or drive) like this with such disregard for the safety of others placing them in danger....  

 

I hope all parties were not seriously injured, I hope the rider learned a valuable life lesson and never rides like this again...  

 

I also hope the video can be used as education for others, its an excellent example of how poor, selfish and inexperienced riding can lead to significant injury in the blink of an eye.

Were the two Thais on the scooter wearing helmets?

 

It also looks like they were trying to make a right turn over a solid yellow line.

Why most of the reporting always referring to race and nationality? ?

"It also looks like they were trying to make a right turn over a solid yellow line."

Yes sure, but not being an excuse for the farang  himself overtaking on this same solid yellow line. 

On the other hand in Samui very few drivers respect the solid yellow lines that is why most of the time I do not overtake, being with my motorbike or my car .

So my answer could have been : A yellow what? In Samui :cheesy:
