And a Covid mask is considered necessary on a motorcycle, but not a helmet, or even baseball cap. 

Oh do get off that, it is past, over, and not even the case now!

My though would be, that the laws and regulations regarding safety, will not apply to an unlicensed guy that are bribing all from God to his mother to be able to continue his business.

Oh really, it may not be a legal requirement, but, at least in my neck of the woods, more motorcyclists still seem to wear masks than don't, whilst, as you say, don't feel that a helmet is needed.  

Let them do as they wish.... not your business, not your worry, going off topic.

Just look at all the businesses and town houses with only one way in and out. If a fire starts near the entrance there's no way anyone will get out of that building.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. Or, to paraphrase Dorothy Parker "You can lead a cop to culture, but you can't make him think."

 

Law enforcement + pay off = catastrophe.

Because they aren't enforced. Simples!

The problem is that government staff like most Thais are taught that the rules are for others.  You goto school the rule says that you have to pass tests but teachers let you go to save face and so no one knows they are not good teachers.

 

Junior gets older and stopped by the police for not having a licence for their motorcycle but give me 100 baht and I will forget it.

Junior then joins the RTP and pulls over a HISO for DUI.  He charges the HISO and takes them to jail.  Sergeant walks up and gives them 1000 and says that they did not see anything

Patrolman gets promoted and now is the one giving the 100 to a patrolman

or that person gets a job working in the local government

learns that they can make more money by giving Thai businesses options.

 

Solution charge all involved find them guilty and then leave the opening for civil litigation from all the families involved as well as the hospitals against not only the people involved but the families as they benefited from the bribes.
