Study reveals shocking extent of dangerous driving

Cargo trucks and public transport buses in Thailand were found to have been speeding beyond the legal limit on more than 17 million occasions last year, according to a GPS-based study by a Bangkok-based university.

The Safety Analysis  study, by King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang’s Smart City Research Centre (SCRC), found that 250,000 trucks and buses had exceeded a legal speed limit 17,218,811 times. It also found that cargo trucks travelled at an average speed of 101.58 kilometres per hour.

 The researchers analysed the 2017 data from the Highway Accident Information Management System (HAIMS), identifying the seven most dangerous spots for crashes and fatalities.

They were:

1. Highway No. 1 between the 708th-726th kilometre markers;

2. Highway No. 2 between the 20th-36th kilometre markers;

3. Highway No. 4 between the 126th-130th kilometre markers;

4. Highway No. 9 between the 30th-38th kilometre markers;

5. Highway No. 32 between the 132nd-137th kilometre markers;

6. Highway No. 41 between the 366th-379th kilometre markers;

7. Highway No. 304 between the 165th-176th kilometre markers and between the 190th-250th markers (cutting through the national forest).

The SCRC joined with the Department of Land Transport to develop a “Smart Mobility” system using global positioning system (GPS) technology to collect data, study drivers’ behaviours, positions and travel directions, and detect vehicle speed.

The findings were revealed on Sunday after several serious road accidents involving buses.

They include the March 21 double-decker coach crash in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Wang Nam Khieo district that killed 18 passengers and wounded 30 others, and the March 30 incident in which a double-decker bus loaded with Myanmar workers crashed and burned in Tak, killing 20 workers.

 The former case involved a meth-taking driver who was speeding beyond the 60km/hour legal limit while driving on winding downhill road.

In the latter case, Dr Thanapong Jinawong, chief of the Road Safety Policy Foundation, raised questions over the bus’s condition, speed and the likelihood of it being overloaded as possible contributing factors.

Popular Nakhon Ratchasima pub closed over underage drinkers

A pub owner has been arrested, and his pub closed indefinitely, after authorities found 40 underage drinkers inside his popular pub in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Dan Khun Thod district.

District officials, police and Army troops raided the Zeed Pub, led by Dan Khun Thod chief Paitoon Mahacheunjai and Dan Khun Thod police station chief Pol Colonel Torsak Chantharakandanon.

The officials arrested owner Sarawut Hongkhunthod, 27, after allegedly discovering 40 pub-goers under age 20.

Torsak said one of the underage drinkers also tested positive for drug use.

He said the owner was charged with operating an entertainment venue without a licence, selling alcoholic drinks to underage persons, and promoting underage persons to act improperly.

Torsak said the pub would be closed indefinitely.

Motorcyclist now charged with killing old scavenger

A charge of physical assault causing death is being brought against a young motorcyclist seen on video attacking an elderly scavenger in Bangkok, after the old man died in hospital on Thursday night.

Narathorn Sodtiyang, 21, had earlier been charged with assault causing injury.

Huai Khwang police chief Kamphon Rattanapratheep said Mr Narathon would now face the harsher charge of assault causing death after Charoon Maneepan, 82, was pronounced dead at Rajavithi Hospital on Thursday at 10.50pm.

The charge was brought against him under Section 290 of the Criminal Code.

Pol Col Kamphon said Mr Narathorn would be summonsed to acknowledge the charge.

On March 14, Mr Narathorn surrendered to Huai Khwang police and admitted assaulting Charoon in a fit of anger.

He claimed the elderly man knocked down his motorcycle with his push-cart tricycle in narrow Soi Chan Muang 2 in Din Daeng area on the evening of March 13 and drove off without offering to assist him.

Mr Narathorn denied reports on social media he was using a mobile phone while riding his bike at the time of the accident, and not paying attention.

He was held in police custody on assault charges.

Charoon was hit with a high, swinging leg kick and then knocked off his tricycle cart to the ground. He was left bedridden and suffered from pressure sores. He was treated at Rajavithi hospital, but his family later took him home.

On Thursday they took him back to the hospital, suffering from a high fever.

His daughter Nida Maneepan said hospital staff gave Charoon CPR for about 30 minutes after he went into cardiogenic shock, but were unable to resuscitate him.

Doctors said he had a blood infection, she said.

Fire kills 20 Myanmar migrant workers on bus in Thailand

Bus fire kills 20 Myanmar migrants in Thailand

Twenty Myanmar migrant workers died early on Friday as fire tore through a bus taking them from a Thai border town to Bangkok, officials said.

It was not immediately clear how the blaze started on the bus — one of four others travelling together to the Thai capital. But television footage showed the bus destroyed by fire which trapped many passengers inside.

“The death toll is now 20, with three people injured,” Pollawat Sapsongsuk of the Tak Disaster Prevention and Mitigation centre told AFP.

47 people on the bus

Kittisak Boonchan, a rescue worker in Tak province, told reporters there were 47 people on the bus.

The accident took place at 1:25 am in the northwestern province of Tak which borders Myanmar, a source of much of Thailand’s huge migrant labour force.

Low status and poorly paid, migrant workers often fall victim to safety lapses and exploitation in Thailand.

The kingdom has a poor road safety record on crashes with around 24,000 people perishing on its roads each year, according to the World Health Organization. Last week 18 people died when a bus veered of the road and smashed into a tree in the northeast of the country.

The driver of that bus later confessed to being on drugs at the time of the crash.
