I lost my own bet.. in the BKK post all the drivers have been fined 500 and the two who blocked the road 1000 each and they all showed up to pay the fines.

It would be more honest if drivers would be fined a percentage of the value of their cars (yes, including import tax!) 😋

Happens everywhere in the world with motorcades.

This also happens everywhere in Thailand is not limited to motorized vehicles, usually just nobody reports about it.

I saw this many times with big bikes, and also many times with groups of bicycles.

Often the police is involved in blocking the roads (which probably just means somebody paid them money, doubt they get an official permit by the city or similar), but many times some drivers / riders block the street by themself.

10,000B is short change for these idiots. Why not confiscate their cars and auctioned them for charity. 

They do that in the country where you come from, or can't you just hide your jealousy that others can afford a nicer vehicle than you?

Where else in the world are traffic fines calculated by a percentage of the car value? More sour grapes from TV losers I guess

Crap

Yes indeed you are talking crap.

 

Special Convoy Rights

The Highway Code of several European countries (Norway, Italy, Greece, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, possibly more) includes special rights for marked convoys. They have to be treated like a single vehicle. If the first vehicle has passed an intersection, all others may do so without interruption. If other road users overtake the convoy, they aren't allowed to split into the queue.

The two that held up the traffic could be jailed for three months and or fined 2,000 to 10,000 baht.

If they are not super, disgustingly rich or not well connected, they should go to jail.

The same applies to a funeral cortege, in UK anyway.
