Mini Van with Shocking Bald Tires – Just a Warning Given

A Mini Van has been stopped by police with tires so bald they could blow anytime, yet amazingly the driver was given just a warning and allowed to continue his journey.

In the aftermath of the tragic road accident involving a Mini Van recently, which claimed the lives of 25 people, police have now set up regular checkpoints in which they are inspecting the state and condition of the vehicles.

Police are also carrying out interviews at these checkpoints of some passengers, regarding the behavior of their particular driver.

Good news you would have thought. Well, hold that though, because you will be amazed to hear about 1 Mini Van in particular that was stopped on the Bang Na-Trat Motorway. After inspection, it was clear to see that the tires were completely bald, so bald in fact that they could have blown at any point.

This should have been enough to take the vehicle off the road until necessary repairs and improvements were made, yet unbelievably, the driver, who was not named, was given a warning by police and allowed to continue his journey to where ever he was heading. He told police that he would be changing the tires the following day, which was obviously enough to get him off the hook.

Police did advise him to drive slowly however, as there was an increased chance of an accident due to the current state of the tires.

    What is there to say, no body over here cares one jot about road safety and they all have a mindset of “it won’t happen to me”…….until it does of course.
    Those police officers should be fired!

    No surprise here, these brain dead people are beyond stupid. The actions of the driver and the Thai Cop are beyond idiotic but this is what they do on a daily basis.

      The warning was prolly valid for two weeks ……Im with you Ken, I find the mindset
      ineffable. My favourite BG in tears ..locked up all afternoon and fined for playing dominoes.

      • ken

        And so she should well be locked up for gambling. Disgracefull behaviour.

        I hope she feels the full force of Thai law.

    When this sub-moronic mini-van driver kills someone, if he hasn’t already. The easily identifiable police will have blood on their hands too.

    Third world country….it will never get better! Stay here Takes your Chanch….
    Still the BENIFITS are worth it!! Happy Days…..

  • xyz yer

    even with tread on the tyres they would rarely check the pressure. quote from a thai . no need to check the tyres as its a new tyre. go figure that.

  • wingknut

    Tires dont typicallty blow.

    They go SSsssssssss…and go flat.

    Told to slow down, and fix it..well, it’s the reasonable thing to do.

    Unless its a public transportation vehicle..that lives under specific rules.

    Most US laws only affect a tire shop, if they can even work on your car, if you have bad tires and refuse to replace them at that time. I dont think a cop can keep you from driving like this in the US…

    • Dr. Winston O’Boogie

      This isn’t in the US. Completely pointless comparison.

      • wingknut

        Actually…its a great comparison.

        Durr..look at the stupid Thai cops..

        But that’s what we do here, unless its a regulated form of transportation…

        It’s a spot on, comparison.

        • Dr. Winston O’Boogie

          What? You still haven’t explained how it’s a valid comparison. Also, easy on the ellipsis. A full stop works just fine.

    • USPatriot

      Depends on the state… most would concider it an unsafe vehicle. Tires will blow out if low on air they heat up and pop
