? on Thai Vehicle Law

Something has annoyed me for sometime now, and maybe someone knows the correct answer.  

I know in certain countries it is against the law to have any lights on the front facing of your vehicle except for amber or the white of headlights.   Does Thailand not have such a rule or ordinance?  You look at oncoming trafic at night and some look like oncoming Christmas Trees.  There are any and all colors of the rainbow.  It is most distracting particularly when you see oncoming lights flashing red or blue , for obvious reasons.  Anyone know if Thailand has any such law or reg??

And a good point to remember if you get stopped in Thailand.

 Also, don’t try to offer money to the police to let you off - even if you think this is an accepted procedure, because you could be charged with a criminal offense as outlined in Section 144 of the Penal Code of Thailand, punishable by imprisonment up to five years, a fine up to 10,000 baht, or both. By the way, police soliciting a bribe are subject to the same punishments, under Section 143. In such a case, insist on a ticket. As the fines are pretty low, the only inconvenience is a trip to the police station to pay the fine and collect your driver’s license.

If the vehicle was to attend a testing station (as is required annually after a certain age) they would FAIL.

Its merely a case, as with many things here, of law enforcement, which again, varies from place to place as with so many other things.

 

It is what it is, and it aint gonna change any time soon.

Technically YES, in practice, different story.

Yes, the colored flashing lights are very irritating but as has been said nothing will be done. Also it's trendy now for motorcycles to remove the rear (yellow) turn indicator lights and then to replace the (red) light with one that indicates turning with an arrow left or right inside the red light. This can hardly even be seen from a distance and is dangerous. Also irritating and should be illegal (maybe it is but...)
