It is always sad when accidents like this happen but Thai authorities do nothing positive to improve road safety and Thailand being among the highest road fatalities on the planet so not surprising to read this and its hardly news!

Thailand is always Thailand. It is the motocyclist who has to make sure that their lights are bright enough to give the brightness at night when riding in Thai roads. The darkness in certain corners and areas which pose danger to the riders necessitates the importance of additional spot lights to motorcycles for better illumination at night.

The initial assumption is that the poorly lit road and a sharp turn might have caused him to lose control

Bs, he "lost control", b/c he was driving quicker as he could see the road. It is sad, but a somnamna accident.

Of course roadwork is mostly badly illuminated and cordoned, but even if just created that day, the reason for the accident is driving. And that "a bit" to quickly

Also gruesome, you know by reading the headline, this is from westwood. Another "tragic" report about a unlucky story, person.

And good, they found his service weapon! (No sarcasm intended)
