A man who repeatedly blocked the path of an ambulance with its siren wailing in Chiang Mai has been fined 500 baht.

He claimed he had taken powerful painkillers for a bad back and this made him blurred and tired.

Pol Lt Col Phongsak Reuankaew of Maejo police acted swiftly when dash cam footage from the ambulance was posted on Facebook.

The 30 year driver - named only as "A" -  was fined 500 baht for not letting the ambulance pass. 

The footage showed him repeatedly cut in front of the ambulance and even brake hard with Daily News saying he seemed intent on causing an accident.

500 Baht for driving like that? Bullshit! he should have been charged with driving under the influence of narcotics, dangerous driving, reckless driving and even though I am not sure if it is a criminal offense, being a total A-Hole on the road.

500 baht for purposely blocking an ambulance through dangerous driving.....obviously not as serious as dropping a cigarette butt on the sidewalk...... where i come from judges wear wigs, here they should wear orange wigs and red plastic noses.

Why is that moron only being named as A?

He should be named/ shamed banned from driving.

He was deliberately blocking the ambulance, just being an a++e.

On average I see more people letting ambulances pass them than before. Quite a bit of improvement over the last five years. In Canada you have to pull over and stop but the ambulance is usually gone before you come to a complete stop. The whole thing takes a few seconds, no big deal.
