The driver, who was not immediately identified, reportedly blamed a “faulty brake” for the incident.


Faulty brakes, it was raining, slippery road etc. Never ever did the drivers have anything to do with these mishaps.

 

Looking at the photo, I wonder why he needed to use the brakes? Was this the first time, after he started his journey, that he tried to use his brakes?

 

Let him personally pay for all the damages done.

But in the quest for the truth, we'll find it won't stop at anything.

Have they ever thought of prosecuting responsible people for faulty brakes or driving?  I guess they haven’t invented that yet?  No training, no enforcement, no responsibility, simply put, nobody really cares 😳

i have said before on her that I have been driving for over 48 yrs .....driven many different vehicles in many different countries AND NEVER EVER HAD BRAKE FAILURE I suppose many on here have done the same. All these Thai drivers do is come up with a very lame excuse. If brakes fail there are ways of slowing the vehicle down....but here they are NOT taught what to do !!

It is not faulty break. It's irresponsible driving by these trucks. They do not adjust their speed to the traffic flow and do not keep enough breaking distance. When these kind of accidents happen, the bad drivers always blame the faulty breaks!

Same as you - I have been driving for more than 60 years - cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, ATV's in many countries and have yet to experience a brake failure.  Any excuse, except the truth, will suffice!

Brain failure not Brake failure was the real cause AGAIN !

but to save face and try and avoid the charge of dangerous

driving,the driver blames the brakes,maybe knowing the Police

never check if that was the case.

Absolutely.

Just now, on the motorcycle dropped off my son at school. On the way home I was (as always) keeping a good distance behind the vehicle in front.

Front vehicle braked sharply twice, as it approached other vehicles too fast. I braked reasonably as I had enough distance in front of me. In my mirror I could see a delivery truck approaching me very fast. Both times it braked and stopped very close immediately behind me.

Frightening.

I'm not a slow driver, but then it insisted on overtaking my motorcycle, and less than fifty metres afterwards braked and turned right. Sigh.

I hear they're blaming the heat wave and smog on faulty brakes.

I'd suggest 'wave' needs spelling 'waive': the police constantly waive enforcing the law.

Time for another honest taxi tall tale

Yeah! And this time the taxi driver is returning a set of new brake pads that a truck driver forgot in the back seat!

I have to take the reporter to task on this occasion.

This is not an accident!!!

Accidents are by definition things that occur which are totally unpredictable and beyond our control.

These are crashes caused by morons!

UK police years ago stopped referring to them as accidents, now road traffic collisions. But here taking responsibility in any aspect of life is not common.

I’ve never understood why the insurance company or police don’t test the brakes after the event, wouldn’t that make sense?

Sense? Make sense, common sense, I rest my case.
