The committee have looked at riders, vehicles, roads, environmental conditions and laws. 

...but not law enforcement.

so how about enforcing the road rules, stopping them from weaving through the traffic, make them indicate, stop at red lights, give way, no more riding the wrong way along a road, these actions would save a hell of a lot seeing most ignore the road rules anyway, they seem to think that being on a bike allows them to do as they please

And at the same time apply the same provisions to car drivers

Rather controversially, I genuinely believe that the local custom of getting new motorbikes (and cars) blessed by monks plays a big part in Thai road safety. Many Thais actually believe that they are untouchable once they have had string tied around their handlebars. There are also a huge number who believe that accidents only happen to other people!! 

Thailand needs to wake up and smell the coffee and to realise that world is constantly evolving and sometimes old traditions become outdated. 

 

 

 

Its a cultural thing. What do you expect when they are not taught to think at school.....then you give them a motorbike..<deleted>

Create a license to feel responsibility, teach them to drive only when sober and without anger....
Job done !

With the best intention on my part. Have you been here long?

Will the bike lanes prevent them from weaving in and out of traffic??

the problem is lack of enforcement and unless you are bringing in an entirely new police force this will not change.
