About 12 years ago, in East Pattaya, 2 people were killed only 30 minutes apart after hitting the same pothole ! Admittedly it happened at night, so the City Road Crew could not be faulted in any way :(

First case

 

Quote
The road was slippery as it was raining. So he pressed the brakes to slow down the car. This caused him to lose control of his vehicle and it went on to the traffic island and collided with a tree,” Lt Boonserm explained.

 

Second case

Quote
He said there was water on the road and the road was slippery. He lost control of his vehicle. He crashed to the traffic island and hit a tree stump. The right tire blew out during the crash,” Lt Boonserm added.

 

Time to  ban traffic islands and trees.

Probably a foreign traffic island and tree had infiltrated the road

Rain again is the cause of these crashes... as both drivers tested negative for DUI...

 

Is there such a thing as Driving without due care and attention or even Reckless/Dangerous driving in LOS, obviously speed was not a factor, oh well maybe one day when they bother with real driver training and an actual real  competence based driving test...
