Long straight road, large garbage truck in full view. And still he drives into it and kills himself. Unbelievable.

 

It's possible that the rubbish truck driver did a u-turn or some other manoeuvrer  cutting across fast flowing traffic leaving the bike driver no chance..not saying that is the case in this instance  but I have seen  drivers of these larger vehicles do some crazy stuff.

Sorry to ask but why does the report of this man's untimely death need to say that he is a security guard? For me I don't need to know this and these kinds of info always influence people's comments..........the poor guy died in a terrible death whatever his job is.

Looking at where it happened and the direction, and noting it was 6.30 pm, means he would have been looking straight into the setting sun, and was probably blinded by it, so didn't see the truck.

I had an accident in the UK many years ago just as the sun was rising. I drove into the back of a mid sized truck stopped on the side of the road which I simply didn't see because of the sun, which had just been hit already by a driver who was trying to explain that he didn't see it. As the truck driver said "How could you not see me?" I arrived and drove up the back of him also with the same excuse.

Strange, in Khon Kaen,  normal motorcycle deaths are never in the newspapers. Maybe the write thinks the story is worth it because he was a security guard?

That is why you should adjust your driving and speed to the conditions at the time.

It perhaps highlights that he was a hard working guy returning home from work rather than a pi$$ed up guy etc..

It's also just as likely that he didn't when all you're doing is speculating based on nothing.

Caveat:- I'm not saying this happened in this particular instance but I am amazed more motorcycles don't run into things every 5 minutes. It's shocking to see the amount of riders who are on their mobiles whilst riding around, usually at quick speeds. They have their eyes and concentration on their phone and riding one handed whilst overtaking, turning corners, weaving around etc. I don't know what is so important on their phone that they are prepared to risk their own death and maybe someone else's for.

Yep, see it all the time out at Mabprachan lake, the roads are used like a racetrack, stupidity reigns supreme.
