    Why only tourists?

    Why not make a law which says "if a driver is found to be driving without license the driver and the owner of the vehicle will each be fined 5000 THB"?

    Even if they only slightly enforce this (i wouldn't expect more from them), then many people will decide to get a driving license, parents will not allow their children to drive on bikes, and many shops will not rent to tourists without license anymore.

    Of course this means that most rental shops will have to close due to a lack of customers. But they could become taxi drivers instead, because somehow the tourists have to get arround.

    What's the betting that you'll still see kids riding to school on motorbikes, 10 years from now; but then, they don't contribute to the economy, do they!

  3. Whilst its a good idea, it will be another nail in the coffin for tourism. Riding a scooter is one of the things people enjoy when they are in Thailand (avoiding taxi rip-off fares is just one of the benefits of having a scooter).


    With so much momentum swinging Vietnam;s way on the tourism front, what are the rules there? Surely its better to restrict access by age - you can bet that its the under 23s who get into the most trouble on a scooter. Make them have a motorbike licence, and leave the over 23s at a car licence. Just sayin...
