Police pick-up ends up on its roof - police was taking it to HQ for a check - rain/slippery road blamed

It was surely not a lack of skills, a lack of attention being paid to the task to driving, or a distraction of some sort that was at fault. It was the road. The road did it to him. Rain tends to make a road more slippery, reduces visibility, and makes driving more dangerous. And this is why we exercise more care, and caution while driving during the rain. Most of us, anyway.

Yawn....   Its difficult not to ‘bash’ and some will certainly (and accurately) point out the 'Thai bash here’ but when there is a car incident ( I refuse to use the world accident ) is there any Thai capable of holding up their hands and stating ‘I was at fault’ ???

Thats not just Thailand

We're taught in the UK to never admit liability for a car accident until we've spoken to our insurers.

Driver Captain Somsak Imphon - who was unhurt - said he was taking the vehicle for a check at the Loei provincial HQ.

Nice to make it easier to check the tyre tread pattern.

If you ever did a driving job in your native country - this is called "drivers privilege"

Yes indeed, and I found this unusual. The most direct route from Roi-et to Loei is 321km via routes 208, 12 and 201 with the estimated journey time just under 5 hours!!

It seems the training of police car drivers is no better than the training the average Thai gets. I am not surprised.

Road didn't look that wet, maybe a stray buffalo in the road caused it to happen, of course going to fast for the road conditions didn't happen neither did speaking on his phone or radio 🤔

I wonder what will happen now:

1. He will apologize and Walk away 

2. He will have to pay for repair

3. He will be finded 

4. He will have to attend a driving school 

5. He will be banned driving a var or Motor Bike.

🤔😶😳
