    Maybe the news of this sad death will motivate authorities into better road law enforcement. Sadly I think not.

    RIP. Sad for all concerned

    I believe a proper service announcement should show a beautiful picture of her winning the title and a sobering pic of her on the steel gurney.
    "Please pay careful attention when you drive. The life you save might be yours or your best friend."

    (As with many things it might fall on blind eyes and deaf ears.)

    Even the third-world shitholes that borders Thailand are safer

    Doing a group cycle ride in that area later this month. Hopefully there won't be any re-enactments of this incident taking place.

    The major problem which Thailand will forever be dealing with will be the fact that through its long history corruption has been accepted and expected.

    Ya just had to throw a few buks a cops way and it was on and upwards at Warp speed down the road. Pissed up or not was not an issue.

    Now things are changing in Thailand and they are making an effort to get on top of the rampant corruption and horrific road toll.

    The problem now lye's with the people, they simply struggle to deal with the new rules and inherently feel they have the right as Thais to do the fuk what they want.

    It will take generations before things finally change in this shit house.

    On with the gong show we go.

    I'm sure if you put your mind to it you'll be able to work out the main reason why Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia have fewer road accidents than Thailand.

    Malaysia is the telling comparison, and the one Thailand should hang its head in shame about.

    That's cuz they've never been made to obey the old rules.
    Most days I'm out on the bicycle and there isn't one of those days where I'm not nearly involved in an accident. Boy do they not like it when you wave your arms and shout at them.

    That's right, the population have been raised to consider all crimes are OK as long as they can pay the Pigs off.

    IF ya follow the news everyday the retards are continuing on with their old ways.

    They simply do not give a fuk.

    Possibly a lesser quantity of larger motorized vehicles and automobiles in the shyteholes that border Thailand make high speed crashes rare. Additionally average speeds on their "highways" are less than 100 kph (62 mph).

    Not that it matters at this juncture. Was it a front end impact or passenger side impact ? Wondering if the victim in the OP was wearing a simple seat belt in advance of proper air bag deployment on impact ?

    Just watched it on Telli and the bint was not wearing a Seat belt as per usual.

    She placed her faith in Buddha, unfortunately he was out saving some other silly fuker at the time.
