Video: Who is to blame for this? Lucky escape for couple on expressway

Recommended Posts

Merc dangerous and premeditated manoeuvre intended to create a dangerous situation to occur, he would of clearly see the truck in the same lane when he forced the cam car to stop in front of a rolling truck... it's a manoeuvre used often in insurance claims in the uk , however but this is obviously not the case in this instance.... the truck was forced to take quick action to avert disaster in which would of been fatal for sure had impact from a direct hit happened... the merc clearly had bad intent and the police should look beyond traffic as this was a premeditated assassination attempt and way above road rage , the merc calmly booted it to avoid and impact once he knew he had set his plan in motion... 5yrs jail time is what he should get and flash motor sold off and cash given to local hospitals (or me)

The truck drivers only mistake was not to stop sooner as this was the case in the British girl where trucker stopped only after 1km ...

The couple in the cam car are your typical Thai drivers who can drive or overtake in any lane... that law must surly change in the future to stop uncertainty...

The merc was solely responsible 100% for that accident if you can actually call it that and must be made to compensate all involved for trauma and both the truck damage and can car

So the flash guy in merc 5yrs Jail on attempted murder and the loss of his car . Comp for couple repairs from merc plus £45000 bhat for each of people in the car and £20.000 plus lost time in wages...

But the worlds never fair and my guess the idiot in merc will sip on a cool Chang beer smiling smugly...

I hope cops read this and look into this merc I think theirs more here than meets the eye....

1) The Dash-Cam car was in the outside lane 'slowing' other traffic. 

- While this is not illegal, its careless of others it could be argued that this is the route cause, but not the blame. 

1) Slowing traffic. Does that mean cars going 200 km/h too?

This person in the MB deserves a very harsh penalty. I guess the flashing backlight was probably very amusing.

 

Oh! Sorry! This is not YOUR private highway on which you can drive as you please! In LOS, I guess you can ! The word "prick" does not quite do this person justice.

 

How old are those people?

 

I look forward to seeing this being addressed by the govn't to showcase their determination at making Thailand a safer place. Do insurances cover this kind of immature driving causing accidents or death?

As an  insurance auto accident investigator for 15 years in America- I can assure you that the Merc driver committed a criminal act as he deliberately stopped to cause an accident out of rage.  Anything after that was a result of what he did.  In America, he would have been prosecuted and possibly jailed , especially if there were injuries.  In Thailand, the police will only pursue this case if someone actually files a complaint against the Benz driver.  

 

Unfortunately,  in Thailand, this type of incident happens all to often.  I often drive the motorways- and when in the passing lane at the speed limit- cars come up very quickly, obviously speeding, flashing their lights.  If possible, I always give way- and always aware that there are a few that will try and initiate an accident.  I always turn on the indicator showing I will give way to avoid this type of incident. Nothing will change until the police arrest and the courts convict these type of people.

It is quite obvious that the Merc driver instigated the accident. Both the driver of the Merc and lorry are at fault for not stopping after the accident. The couple in the car are lucky to be alive IMHO.

The Merc driver needs to be neutered, simple as that.

 

I've personally seen another car do exactly the same move on that same stretch of road near the Ramindra Rd exit ramp when they didn't get their way. Either hot headed young punks or dui.

The driver who stopped in front no doubt belongs to the immensely popular Don't You Know Who I Am Club.  The Police will be contacting him  shortly, if not already. I hope he gets a BIG fine. But, if he's rich or well-connected, the driver of the damaged car will probably have to pay damages to him.

Where do you get 200 kmh from ? (yes.... we know you are just being facetious) 

 

Slowing traffic means just that... while driving less than the speed of other road users who may otherwise wish to use the outside lane to pass. 

 

As we can see from the Video the Dash-Cam car is not speeding and while the speed is not shown, for many of use who drive the expressways regularly it appears that he is traveling relatively slowly. 

 

Had the Dash-Cam car been aware of his surroundings and more considerate of those others with whom he shares the road this event would not have occurred. Not that this condones the actions of the Mercedes driver, who IMO could be charged with attempted manslaughter....    .......it does go some way to explaining how the careless and inattentive nature of many on the roads hear can lead to bigger issues when combined with immaturity, stuipidity, ego, face, inability to control temper, sense of entitlement, impatience.. etc etc...

After seeing the video again I guess the driver forgot to watch his back mirror and the Benz driver could have overtaken using the left lane. Clearly a retard who thinks he owns the the road. Wrong judgment from the victim who moved to left, he could have crashed into the retard who deliberately stopping in front and braking without any reason. The dashcam would help him for insurance claims

I am so happy that someone had the balls to do what I cannot do !

 

I cannot stand anymore all these monkeys who have no reason to be on the right lane with their shiiiitee trucks.

 

If more of us would do it they would finally learn that the right lane is only made to pass cars and not a lane where you can stay at low speed as a retarded they are !

I doubt the truck can brake on time since this is expressway. Luckily the truck driver managed to veer off to the right lane on time. The dashcam driver could have crashed on the Benz for braking for no reason.
