Exactly, one death, not an issue, 2nd death got  their attention, 3rd, might get fixed.

All these should have been placed under ground years ago, however, the government hasn't got a epair to force the media companys to comply, manly because Thailands hi so and politicians are the main share holders.

The location of the wound dressing on the guy's head says he wasn't wearing a helmet. That's stupid at any age.

What I read of the details, it wan not the riders fault

My father taught me you can be right or you can be dead right.

 

Riding a motorcycle is 10 x more likely to result in your death vs a car [USA]. 

 

In Thailand it has to be even riskier.

 

Thus, you might say Riding is Dead Wrong. ☠️

In the west the phrase is “ lowest hanging fruit”

Translated to Thai is “ lowest hanging wires”
