63 posts in this topic

I was in exact same situation. Stopped to a guy lying on Sukumvit as no one else stopped. Ppl were on the side of the rd looking from far. Went to check on him. Was night. Then saw car lights coming at me fast. Jumped to ditch. Gf was all screaming thinking im done. It was thai girl who finished this guy, he ended up under her car. Then i left. Since then I dont stop to incidents, thais cant be bothered why I should?

Oh and after that I was told if I touch victim and he die I would be blamed for it and most likely jailed.

Why is that "probably" the case?

Just a lot of older drivers from other countries. Some do not drive so good and are use to a different type of driving and drivers.  My neighbor had 2 accidents in 3 months both his fault   he would not have a license in America he would fail the road test

They make it too easy for foreigners to drive here and rent cars. 

If you can't read Thai, you shouldn't really be allowed to get a license. If you can't read the warning signs you shouldn't be on the road. 

 

Did they ever catch up with the British merc driver who killed the two Thai women and ran off? CHiang Mai I think it was.

Using that logic, virtually no Thai would be able to drive anywhere in the world outside of Thailand (or possibly one or two of its immediate neighbours.)

So not "probably" the case then. 

 

Apart from one person that you know, who says there are "just a lot of older drivers from other countries who do not drive so good"?

Did you bother to look at the video of the accident which showed the driver?

Then your not really driving to the conditions of the road.... personally, I fully expect these issues, as you describe, to appear without warning.... and rarely ever drive at 120, even during the day.... it's too damn risky on Thai roads

Exactly, that's why I consider everyone that is driving over 80-90 is a reckless driver in Thailand, There's just too many factors out of your control that make it too dangerous to drive that fast here. 

 

Ofcourse, you can call me a pussy and you will.... But i'm just thinking safety first.

Exactly! Damn risky driving on Thai roads!

 

whats the rule about nighttime driving and headlights?.... something about stopping distance vs headlight projection distance, isn't it? This would be why.
