    HEADS UP

    In the Rawai area there are Thai people riding around on motorcycles who when they see a foreigner are driving into the side of the vehicle as you pass them and claim you have hit them, they did it to me, as i passed them they hit my pickup by the rear taillight and claimed i had run into them.
    I told them if they wanted to make any problems the damage was at the rear of the vehicle not the front which meant they had run into me and to piss off
    There was only a slight mark on the paintwork made by someone hitting the side of the truck with their hand with something in it, i have been told by someone in the know there a a few couples doing this

    I think you are getting a bit paranoid there Peter.

    The textbook way the Indians do it in the UK is to wait around a blind bend and slam their brakes on so you ram them up the arse, then they claim for their car and whiplash for the 5 of them who were sat in the car.

    Peter's account seems pretty believable to me.

    At least it doesn't defy physics like waiting somewhere and then slamming your brakes on.

    Leave it there and next time point to it and ask which mark they made?

    That's fact not fiction. Mate wasn't Indian but close enough, had a smart BMW more or less on its last legs, invested a few quids in petrol looping between Marble Arch and HPC outside of rush hours when traffic flows, didn't take long to notch up two hits complete with admission and apologies. Good days them were.

    How does that defy physics?

    If you put your brakes on then you will incur more damage than without.

    Stick to English Teachy and finding typos

    How exactly does one wait around a blind corner and then slam on the brakes ..without defying The Standard Model?

    A thread about Thailand descends into a rant about magical Indians transcending the laws of physics in the UK?

    A texbook case you say?

    not commenting on anything directly related to what's mentioned in the OP, but you'd have to be crazy to drive without a dashcam here.

    I have both a dash cam and rear cam mate, they pissed off when they realized i would not fall for their scam, i happened at 11am in the morning on the way to the beach
    A lady neighbor of ours who owns a bar told me it happens quite often at night around the bars at closing time

    Way to much time on your hands teachy. I would be sure pissed of as a parent paying top dollar to have me nippers educated by a farang only to find out that the farang spends all day on teakdoor talking bollocks and sending reds. Get back to work you worthless cocksucker.

    Very common scam, except apparently for people in Wolverhampton.

    They're too busy watching out for stationary vehicles about to have their brakes slammed on.
