I wonder how many stashed their helmets first, and went through a few times to get the freebies.

:cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

Nothing about the fact this has been law for decades now.

Nothing about the inability of the police to enforce a single law, except when someone has a vested interest in it for a specific reason.

Here's a game all can play. Spot the rider without a helmet in this video from Vietnam.

 

What factor makes the difference with helmet use in Thailand?

In a word - Thainess

Ever heard the phrase: "Unfortunately it led to a false sense of security"?

I think I read in Vietnam the police confiscate the bike if no helmet.

if they done it in Thailand it'll work in no time as Thais don't like to walk as it hurts as my mrs says.

You won't believe how many thai like to walk/run/jog.....but they hate the crappy sidewalks and smog....Here i see at least 100 of them every day jogging/running/biking....
