A Mercedes-Benz sedan driven by a Thai woman caught fire after crashing into a power pole last night, November 23rd.

 

Plu Ta Luang firefighters and rescuers rushed to snuff out a fire that was engulfing a red Mercedes-Benz sedan wreckage at the entrance of the Naphaphan Land Village on Sukhumvit Road inbound to Rayong province.

 

The village was situated in the Plu Ta Luang subdistrict of Sattahip, Chonburi.

Yes. This could be before or after they flip on a straight road at 275kph.🙃🙃

Thats one of the facets of road safety here in Thailand. 

 

Road safety is not just about law enforcement, driving training and safety awareness, which of course are primary facets, but also about ‘road design’, how logical road layouts are, how clearly they are laid out, marked and sign posted.... But also ‘how safe’ the roads itself is with barriers, armco and as with this example, how close immovable objects such as power poles etc to the road itself....

 

There’s the ‘human factor’ which we can’t completely eradicate - thus, when the ‘human factor’ surfaces and there is a ’slip up’ a micro-sleep a distraction or moment of inattention a devotion from the ‘lane’ good, safe and well thought out planning and road design means there isn’t something ’solid’ to hit....  (in most cases)...  

 

In Thailand this aspect of safety is not even an after thought - hence, so many of these ‘power poles’ and 'light poles’ are impacted....

Ever thought they would not stop until they did hit something when going off road ?

Power Pole: 1

Mercedes: 0

Obviously a Mercedes design flaw not taking a Thai driver and power poles into consideration.

I suspect many other makes suffer the same design fault. I only tune into this forum to find out which power pole is on the move.

'witness saw her driving in the rain'

 

Was it an EV, did the battery get wet ... 😂

Maybe she went over a speed bump.  We all know EVs can't handle speed bumps.

That level of technology isn't available to human kind yet.

Perhaps why the police got the BMWs instead?
