Thankfully no one was killed. The Fortuna seems to have faired the worse. That's seems a lot of damage considering it crashed into some motorbikes.

While we can't say how the accident happened without further information, looking at the extent of damage to the car, excessive speed would appear to be a contributing factor. Very lucky that nobody was killed, because anyone getting hit by a car travelling as fast as it must have been going, would have had no chance, and one hopes the charges for the driver reflect that.

playing facebook more important than driving and lives

 

I have seen smartphones on holders right on the dash in front of the driver streaming Thai TV soaps, FB etc. The stupidity is unsurpassed, and what is even worse the police/authorities are doing nothing to stop it along with drunk driving and other moving traffic violations - the carnage continues unabated

Traffic police activity on Beach Road seems to be mostly outside the cop shop stopping motorcyclists with no helmet. They need to fan out a lot more to catch speeders and red light runners.

Brake failure meant he had to use the bikes to slow himself down. No way he could have been distracted by texting or chatting on the mobile. His phone records will confirm that.

Any members that take their kids on scooters should look at that first picture and imagine them and their child sitting on the bike closest to impact. 

Or you could be crossing the street. Will you stay indoors?

And the driver made a run as usual?

From the voice on the video "the guy" was too drunk to run.

Drunk as a skunk?

Well those 24/7 parked rental motorcycles are just a nuisance.

 

They were supposed to banned from beach rd during a 5 minute crack down a few years back.

Drivers of black SUV's with dark tint all around believe they are the only car on the rd and drive accordingly

Who is to say someone didn’t run out in front of him and he had to swerve to avoid them. Speed limit is 80 I believe. Don’t criticize unless you know the facts. 

Could be the case but the odds are stacked against it being a responsible sane act.  Of course it could be another "brake failure".

AFAIK the maximum speed limit on Beach Road is 60.

Yes, there are a dozen things that could have caused the driver to swerve. Beach Road often resembles a 4-lane race track, but at least all the traffic is going in the same direction (well, not always).

God forbid that they should move far away from the air conditioning.

There used to be (till they mostly faded away ) painted on the road 40KPH speed signs 

no one drives along there at 40 KPH.

those parked bikes serve a purpose providing seating for beach road freelancers otherwise too lazy to stand.
