These 3 wheel abortions, I thought they were not legal to drive/ride on public roads.

Have been illegal since the early 90's.

I remain mystified and horrified with the number of drivers here who seem to flee the scene of an accident.

Not only is it lacking responsibilty, however does it also indicate no insurance, no licence?  With all the cams around areas I am surprised they think they will not be caught.

 

 

The Cams around dont work  ........Thais  dont do maintenance

so the pickup driver has no license and was drunk possibly thereby flee's.

the motorbike side car is technically illegal so should not have even been on the road. 

 

ok then .....   no one's fault.  

 

case closed.

They aren't legal to ride in, but whether something is illegal or not has absolutely no relevance in Thailand.

There was a German guy I knew here in Patts, frequently being pulled over and being told his samlor was illegal... as others rode past ..... 'not allow for falang' he was told!

The point you "missed " is the higher frequency of the jerks in pickups . Edit: in all kinds of accidents around here

Maybe the government cams don't work, but I know that intersection, there's a gold shop, a money lending place, a Audi cars sales place and a  motorbike sales shop very close by, I bet those places have working cams.

When my expat friend got into a accident with his Fortuner vs pregnant lady on a motorbike, the cops had camera footage taken from a nearby bar showing my friend at fault.

And if he hadn't been at fault " camera no work"

Simple reason for that is there are more pick-ups on Thai roads than any other type of vehicle apart from motorcycles.

Interesting, never knew they did that. How easy was it to do?

The other side of the Coin was demonstrated quite a few Years ago now.

A Driver actual did stop.

He got out of his vehicle, and looked at the victim lying in the Street.

He returned to his vehicle, assessed that the victim was seriously injured, and then proceeded to run back and forth over the victim several times.

When arrested and asked why he did this his reply was 

" I would rather pay for this only once, and not for the rest of my life by paying the Medical Bills."

Somewhat lacking compassion and empathy for his victim
