The van is obviously trying to prevent the sedan from going around him.  The van makes a lane change without signaling.  The sedan signals but it's too late.  Trying to pass the van and cut him off resulted in the accident.  Both are at fault, but the van certainly instigated it.  This is typical Thai behavior, always trying to get ahead of people on the road, don't give way ever even to pedestrians.  Thais change into a completely different creature when they operate a moving vehicle.

They're that way all the time!

In most states, if not all, there is this thing called, "No Fault," insurance.  This would easily solve the Thai problem of shunning responsibility when they have a traffic accident.  This would allow them to retreat into the culture of, "I didn't do it." I've had so many scooter boys hit my car and do a runner.  This is the major reason why I chose to put a train horn in my car. The way I see it, I'm also doing them a favor so they too won't get in an accident. The only problem is the collateral damage it causes to others in the area, and at 160+ decibels it's super loud.

Here's what I have in my car.

http://lukashd.com/dashcam/product_info/dashcam_9370wd.html

Front and rear coverage.....not to mention parking mode, gps, wifi, and more.  It's well worth the money.  I used to use the Blackview dash cam, but I've found this one to be superior. 

It is pricey, but well worth the money.  Here is a link where you can buy one on ebay.  I've changed out the memory cards on mine to 64gig in both slots. The wifi feature is nice because you can use the Lukas app on your smart phone to program the settings of the unit.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lukas-LK-9370-Blackbox-Dash-Camera-2CH-Full-HD-Wi-Fi-3-5-LCD-Dual-16Gb-8Gb-GPS-/291584083819

I'll snap some pictures later of my setup.  Here is a video I made the other day of some fckface who almost hit my son and another student when I was dropping him off at school.  Typical IMPATIENT Thai, never aware of cause and effect.  He doesn't even bother to look for the children getting dropped off at school.  Instead, he tries to maneuver around me almost hitting my car as well.  I have the sound turned off, but this will give you a good idea of the quality of the video...And yes he got the train horn and drove away as fast as he could. 

Around 2:20 of the video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJGDf5_twrw

Here's another one of another fckface who almost broadsided me. Watch the black POS rice burner car at :32 of the video.



I've given copies of these videos to the school and the response I got was, "Mai Pen Rai."

With the shipping and everything, mem cards, around 400 bucks.  For install around 800 baht from Rangsee Sound, who I HIGHLY recommend. They are located down on the left from Save-One a few hundred meters after the Mercedes dealer. They also did the last two train horn installs for me.

Took these two pics today.  You can see the front camera and the rear camera in the rear view mirror attached to my rear window (small square which appears above the silver truck...look closely).  These pics don't do justice to the unit, but the videos they record are crystal clear.  You can pick so many different viewing modes while driving.  I usually just have it set to viewing the front camera.  Another nice feature is the parking mode one.  When you park your car and go shopping or something, it will kick in and record if someone fcks with your car, even if someone just walks around or near your car.  This is great when you get those pricks who try to do a hit and runner deal. I strongly suggest a wifi feature with a dash cam because you can download the videos and play them on your smartphone........no need to remove memory cards and find a computer, and you can stream them right there, live to the authorities and insurance company if you need to.

Thaiga...the other day I train horned some idiot talking on his phone while riding his motorbike holding up traffic.  When I blasted the train horn, he catapulted / launched himself off his motorcycle into the brush on the side of the road....kind of like what you would see when a fighter pilot has to eject from his airplane.  I've never seen anything like it. He was fine as he launched himself into the soft grass near Nong Pai Lom. That little bypass road they built near the temple. Oh...I forgot to mention...he was holding a cigarette in the same hand as his mobile phone.

You need to remember, thaiga, many of these folks have gone from the buffalo to a moving vehicle with an engine.  They're not ready for the technology yet. They don't understand the technology because they've not had time to adapt, invent it, and understand the responsibility that goes along with it. They don't understand cause and effect either. Many still have the mindset that they're still in the village / farm which is why they take such a passive attitude when they're on the road.

How about next time you 'Train Horn' somebody in your wagon, can you upload and post the video from your Dash Cam?
 
I know myself and I'm sure others on here would be greatly amused to witness the joy and satisfaction that you have and bring to your fellow Thai road users ;)
