Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Bt9.6m bicycle lane ends up as roadside parking space

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately a bicycle lane in Thailand is a concept at least 5 or more decades ahead of its time. Any attempt in Thailand to widen a road only succeeds in creating a parking lane. I made this same comment a decade ago and the same is still true today. Even if you have a double lane with two way traffic with no parking spaces on either side it automatically becomes a one way by default!

 

The real culprits...traffic law enforcement of which there is none.

So you take part of the road beside a footpath where cars park, paint it and put up bike lane signs. Now cars are parking there, I can’t believe that!!!!!!

Never see bicycles on them bike lanes, never see any people on the overhead road crossings! Waste of money. Most Thais are lazy - remember that!

Are thai’s dropped on their head at birth? The things I read on here on daily basis are unreal. Can’t use the other bike lane in Hau Hin either, due to motor bikes & sidecars zooming up and down all day every day. What’s wrong with these clowns!! 

Education!  plain and simple no critical thinking just memorization then you add that with the corruption the left-hand doesn't know what the right is doing or just can't do anything about it which is what the excuse being used again this time around.

I am quite surprised it's not being blamed on pesky foreigners parking in the cycle lane. 

 

Typical worthless police saying nothing can be done. It's simple to fIx this, enforce the law, surely somewhere is the law in Thailand it says no parking in cycle lanes OR cars not to use cycle lanes?

 

Put up a clamping sign and fee for removal, easy.

Put metal posts on both side of the lane with spacing enough for a bike

How dare you bring logic into this.

They prefer not to obey rules which inconvenience them in any way. You will find this underlying trait explains a great deal of Thai behaviour. Rule-following Germans they are not.

Maybe if they towed away the vehicles and made the owners pay for the towing, storage and a fine before the vehicle is released this would maybe, and I use the word maybe loosely, this would maybe go someway to solving the problem so would getting rid of the vehicles on the other side of road

So there is no law in Thailand concerning not blocking bike paths? I would assume the fact that it is a bike path and not part of the street would be enough....

BS! Nothing WILL be done about it.

 

No CONSEQUENCES in LOS (unless you really have to pee)

 

Why they remain behind in SE Asia...bitch about this if you want...the facts are obvious.

Never mind, blocking the cycle lane has probably saved a few dozen lives so far.

 

Ooops, sorry, I didn't see you there, falang!

It is so unbelievable really, why so many departments are involved. It should just be the council or the roads authorities. The government money that is so wasted. Employ monkies expect monkey business.

To solve problems like this you treat the Thai population with some serious gene-therapy.... Or wait for the education level  to get higher in 20 - 40 years


I would bet my money on gene-therapy 😉

But if Thailand where an developed country like the west, could you afford to live here ?
