Dash cam and internal footage showed the moments when an ambulance on the way to Chumpon hospital could not get past a CRV.

Yet again! Driver repeatedly fails to pull over for ambulance as heart patient rushed to Chumpon hospital | News by Samui TimesAs the heart patient in the back battles for life the selfish driver in front refuses to pull over.

Then when it looks like they are finally going over to the left they incredibly pull back in front of the ambulance again to get past a large truck.

When a clear stretch of road is ahead the ambulance manages to undertake on the left.

But two minutes has been wasted already.

The footage clearly showed the licence plate of the offending vehicle though this was vaselined out in stills from Thai Rath.

It happened shortly after 2pm on Sunday.

There have been many such cases recently.

Calls have been made to increase the fine from 500 baht to something more realistic – such as 20,000 baht wanted by one activist.
