Timothy, all vehicles, in Thailand, have a major design flaw, it's the "loose nut" behind the steering wheel. :)

Yes folks. Our number one Thai apologist has decided to comment on pretty much every article and explain to us silly people how everything makes sense (to him). He has been buying into and dishing out BS for so long he actually thinks two vehicles can smash into one another and the driver or drivers weren't at fault. He fits in perfectly here.

How do you know it was the fault of the driver/s? Crystal ball?

Another nonsense head to head accident involving 2 thai drivers. Where they fit for for driving, having driving  license ( not just bought one as is so common in Thailand). Eyes sight must be discussed, or drugs/alcohol use. Any one who calls this head to head  normal? It is stupid, I dare to say.
