Grab driver beaten up by ‘win’ thugs in Bangkok – VIDEO




Artit Chitnok posted a 20 second video on his Facebook page a video that showed 3 ‘win’ motorbike drivers (motorcycle taxi drivers) beating up a Grab Bike driver on the road. The incident took place on the night of October 26 under the Thonglor BTS Skytrain Station in Bangkok.

The video was taken from inside a car while they were stuck in traffic. The video shows 3 win motorbike drivers pushing and shoving the victim and trying to punch his face through his helmet. The video went viral.

‘Artit’ captioned the video “I saw this incident with my own eyes.”

“I don’t know what happened before this happened but it’s not right to use force to each other in the middle of Bangkok. This took place right under the Thonglor BTS Skytrain Station. Foreigners that were walking by shouted at the Win motorbike drivers “Let’s them stop!”. It was very embarrassing to other people, it seemed like we were living in the jungle”, according to the report in Thai Residents.

“There were 3 Win motorbike drivers while the victim was alone. I’m pretty sure he was a Grab Bike driver if it was an accident there wouldn’t have been 3 Win motorbike drivers at the scene all at the same time.

“If this is true, you’re the ones destroying your own career. Who wants to sit on your motorbike, if a customer makes you mad won’t you just beat them up too?”

Social media condemned the win bike drivers for the violent attack.

“It’s an act of violence that makes people dislike Win drivers even more. Their reputation is ruined because of their own actions over and over.”

Grab Bike, whilst already widely used, is not technically legal at this stage and awaiting the Transport Mnister’s blessing to be a legal alternative to the win drivers who have ruled intersections around Bangkok for decades.


เจอเหตุการณ์กับตัวเองจังๆ ไม่รู้เหตุการณ์ก่อนหน้าเป็นไง แต่ก็ไม่ควรใช้กำลังกันตรงใจกลางกรุงเทพ ใต้ BTS ทองหล่อพอดี ชาวต่างชาติได้แต่ตะโกนว่า Let's them stop!! น่าอายมาก เหมือนบ้านป่าเมืองเถื่อน วินมอเตอร์ไซด์มากัน 3 คัน ล้อมน้องคนที่โดนทำร้าย ถ้าให้ทายก็น่าจะ grabbike ป่ะ เพราะถ้าเป็นอุบัติเหตุไม่น่ามาพร้อมกัน3 คันได้ แต่ถ้าเรื่องนั้นจริง คนที่ทำลายอาชีพคือพวกคุณเองน่ะแหล่ะ ใครจะกล้าขึ้นรถนักเลง เกิดไม่พอใจตี ผดส.ทำไง
