i saw them handcuffing a young thai yesterday, throwing him on their pickup while they extracted bribes from me, guess he didnt have money with him and i couldnt help him as they stole all my money either.

 

You are spot on. Stay away from Thailand at Songkran, or in general lol.

"Loud and annoying music on vehicles" 

That would apply to thousands of offending vehicles nationwide year-round. For many Thais, the level of fun and personal awesomeness equates to the sheer volume of boom-boom loud as <deleted> music. Then there are the trucks loaded down with giant speakers shouting adverts. Stopping it during Songkran? 55555 😃 

And the buses with decked out with speakers, almost the width and height of the coffins on wheels.

Police, lawyers, and government officials love Songkrang.  It's that one time of year they flex, finger-point, and threaten the public with endless - "DON'T"s. 

I have one too.  Don't come to Thailand this time of year -- it totally sucks.  And if you do come, remember - Don't have fun.

Yep Songkran sucks

Actually I just spoke to a friend of our family who’s a retired Thai cop and he said that it’s fine to have alcohol in the vehicles playing Songkran and to actually drink it in the bed of the pickup truck as long as you aren’t disorderly.  My wife’s family is always watching the local news and they haven’t heard any such thing except for no drinking and driving.  No molesting women, children, or ANYONE SHOULD GO WITHOUT SAYING!!!  

 

I swear sometimes this site loves to post as negative information as possible and overly exaggerates everything.

I don’t really like the ice cold water either but it is Songkran in Thailand.

Never mind the music. More important are idiot$ using modified exhaust systems. not to mention the (new?) trend of using some sort of 'whistles' on manual transmission pickups.

Well yeah you hear the same stuff on this site every year on Songkran yet nothing ever changes lol.

Yeah I kind of doubt it it’ll be a normal Songkran just like every other year before. At least where I live anyway.  Although I hear people get twice as crazy down south in places like Pattaya to the point of running around naked so I think a lot of this is kind of more directed towards down south.  People get crazy up here to and it’s a lot of fun but nothing like what I hear goes on down south.

So their "laws"are serious a few days every year? But I recall reading that during these few days, it's legal to have people riding on the truck bed. Makes sense...to them?

some how they are....but again this is LOS, they do as it fits
