CHAI-AM: -- An elderly German husband and wife were killed instantly at a U-turn on the Petchkasem Road in Cha-Am yesterday. Their motorbike collided with a Bangkok bound car.

 

The accident happened at the U-turn by Cha-Am granite, reported Thairath.

 

Dead at the scene were Helmut Schmidt,74 and his 64 year old wife Anna.

 

Their Honda Click was found fifty meters further down the road. They were involved in a collision with a Honda Jazz driven by Sommai Thianthat, 30, who said he was on his way to Bangkok with his girlfriend. They were both unhurt.

 

He said that the motorcycle came into the path of his car and he was unable to brake in time.

Death and loss of lives on roads is a scrooge of daily driving, you can minimize

is but impossible to avoid it and in particular with the proliferations of cars

and drivers on ever crowded and shrinking driving space.....

What a tragic loss r.i.p.

It is not how you drive here, that is the problem, it is how others drive.

Ok show police your dashcam video, but 1 think it dosent show is how fast you were going at the time.

The question is how many 74 year olds that are driving a motorcycle in their home country, and how many of those that are out on the big roads making a u-turn.
I am not blaming anybody, and off course it´s another very sad story with a bad outcome. The thing is though, that people seem to believe that they are invincible when they choose to go to or stay in Thailand.

people seem to believe that they are invincible [your referring to WHO]  when they choose to go or stay in thailand,say's you.

you need to GET REAL with a NEW BRAIN.

I don't dare to speak out for the level of knowledge of the Thai Police officers.
But the speed of a vehicle can be very accurate deducted from a dashcam footage by taking a reference distance (eg,: 2 light poles) and measure the time to do this traject.
