I ain’t going anywhere! Furious Farang knocked down on Zebra Crossing refuses to budge

Thai television showed the aftermath of an accident in which a caucasian man is seen sitting on a Zebra Crossing in front of a stopped car. 

The apparently female driver of the car is seen smiling as the foreigner stubbornly refuses to get up and get out of the way. He is adamant that he is in the right.

The presenters on the TNA show say that the “farang” is “ngong” – completely perplexed by what has happened. 

They say that zebra crossings in Thailand are not the same as those from where he is from – no one bothers to stop. 

They comment that fortunately he is not badly hurt. 

The presenters discuss Thailand and its driving habits – they talk about amber lights that should mean slow down, but in reality Thai drivers speed up to get through the intersection. 

In their written report it suggested that the foreigner either didn’t know or had forgotten that no one stops for pedestrians on zebra crossings. 

They noted that in the UK, Australia, Japan and Western Europe drivers have to stop and penalties for those that don’t are severe. 

But not here.
