It definitely needs to be done.   Too many tourists as well as expats feel they're immune to the traffic laws

Does this include Koh Tau ?

As if the locals don't, likely more so........ this very topic suggests they are not to be included.

Yeah, or just maybe something that needs to be done.

At least they are doing something at last... renting out the golf carts from hotels is definitely illegal.

Now need to wear a helmet when driving a gulf cart ...?

'stressing the necessity of verifying renters’ driving licences and enforcing helmet use'

 

Again, only for the tourists, b.t.w. how about this to the locals?

Or do we turn our heads, as usual, the other way.

ok let me dumb it down then.

 

foreigners act this way in thailand because when they come here they see thai doing all of the things mentioned. they soon realize what a joke the law enforcement is here regarding traffic violations. then they become comfortable just as the locals do. without a respect for the law the infractions become an every day part of life. without real enforcement the problem grows into what you have today all over thailand. 

 

daily disregard for traffic safety and overall a disregard for others lives. the irony of that coming from buddhists is another topic.   

 

so back full circle now. tourists and expats learn these habits from the locals who are setting the example. hence my original facetious question. which had a deeper meaning you seemed to have totally missed. 

 

Well put. "When in Rome, see what laws Romans ignore" and act accordingly

They undoubtedly knew the " Rapid Response " team was on the way.. Does the island not have any Cops ?

Rapid response team for foreigners, but where is that team for the Thai people?. Awareness is needed for Thai too as many tragic accidents happens. Or is it quick moneymaking? Softpower to attrack tourists

Bout 2 yrs we went to Koh Larn thinking there would be some form of easy transport to the beaches. Wrong, I didn't want to rent a MB but it was the only option. 3 of us one MB was OK going to the downhill beach but coming back had one person take a winn.

 

So, they need more options as far as transport goes.

 

Stopped for a beer at one the beer bars on Beach Rd. near the Police checkpoint just before Central Mall. They said police were charging 1000 Baht no license and 500 no helmet. Cops go there everyday like a farmer milks his cows.


i go to Koh Larn regularly since just after Covid,I use the baht buses opposite the Wat next to the market, they cover all the beaches, 30 baht one way.
