the woman never even batted an eyelid

 

This is a very common manoeuvre pulling straight out into the fast lane, whether is be for a U turn or a junction km's further up the road, complete madness.

Absolute sleeper.

And there is no good driving but just an emergency breaking resulting in loss of control.

Nothing but luck that the other motorcycle rider was not thrown off.

From between 10 and 11 sec into the video it was clear that the motorcycle rider would not stick to the left lane but cross.

About 3 sec(!) later the pickup nearly hit the motorcycle.

 

Amazing silence: I know it's "forbidden" to honk but here it would have been absolutely necessary!!!

Dreadful driving all round.

I bet you anything you like  the pickup driver's first response was to blast her horn rather than brake and try and avoid a collision herself.

The video has sound and I am afraid he did nothing, neither honk (which he should have done!) nor break at first.

I bet he realized that the bike would come over.

And then? Being surprised that the bike slowed down?

There is a U-turn! All U-turns are clearly announced with a sign.

Complete sleepy and careless fool and not "good driving".

Not good driving, but pure luck. The pick-up should have reduced the speed already, when the motorcycle came near the middle of the road.

If that is good driving then I need to go and re-educate myself on how to operate a vehicle.

A derogatory post generalizing ALL Thais has been removed... as per Forum Rules.

Apart from the usual Thai motorcyclist, the pickup driver must have been on the phone or half asleep.

 

I can't believe this is even news!

If that is good driving, heaven help!!!

Agreed....  How is that possibly good driving ?????.....  the pickup truck had a life time to react and brake only to spin out....   utterly ridiculous that this could be consider ‘good driving’ in the looses sense of the word.... 

 

.... and the motorcyclist....  this is exactly why we all need dash-cams... 

 

How can someone pull out in the outside lane of a main road like that and so clearly and obviously put their own life in such grave danger absolutely astonishes me.

This is the reason that so many Thai motorbike drivers get killed on the roads. It's the complete carelessness and stupidity of the riders assuming that they have the right of way because no laws are enforced to make them comply with sane driving. It's a total free for all for motorbike drivers in Thailand and a reason I will never get on a bike again here in Thailand.

So true and the reason I installed both a front and back dash cam on my vehicle in Thailand.

When I taught my wife to drive in the UK I told her treat everyone as an idiot, over here it makes perfect sense to. Pick up driver wasn't a good driver he should have been looking for that to happen instead of reacting at the last minute.

Where does being unable to react quickly when something adverse happens on the road, then braking & lose complete of your own vehicle causing it to spin constitute good driving. The mind boggles. Of course TIT

Yep, lady rider has a death wish and the driver has reactions of a retard.
