It's true that he, 

1. Should have had a helmet on, and

2. Shouldn't have done the under take, however,

if you look at the video, he was on his side of the road and as such was in the right, although in Thailand he would've been in the wrong. 

No he was in the wrong, he overtook when it was not safe to do so.

Just try to understand that this was a foreigner doing the wrong thing, and that it ain´t funny.

Actually...

 

The Thais were stopped where they shouldn't have been stopped. There was no legal right turn for them to make. It is a non-broken yellow line.

And how can you tell they were trying to make a turn? Just irresponsible driving by the guy on the big bike....:sad:

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.

As reported, and by watching the video.

 

Don't stop in the middle of the road, on a bend, to cross a solid a yellow line.

You're wrong.

Dividinglines

A yellow line indicates the division of a two way traffic road (it’s the center line), whether a white line indicates a lane. A solid line can’t be crossed, whereas a broken line can be crossed if it is safe to do so.

An unbroken solid line cannot be crossed.

 

The Thais were wrong to stop (on a bend) in the center of the road, in order to illegally cross a very easily seen solid yellow dividing line.

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

That's about half the Thai population disqualified from riding a bike

I just give up. Appearently just another one that comes to Thailand and make the locals wrong all the time.
Ever considered moving or visit some other places where you can fit right in.

Clearly the Thais making an illegal turn and stopped dangerously in the middle of the road also at fault here.

 

Negligent driving by both parties = accident.
