Not entirely true. Son of a Friend got busted for Drink Driving on a Motobike a while ago at night. Had to stay the night in jail, morning go to Court and his Fine (because first offense) was 3000 THB. If he is caught the 2nd time it will be much harder and also has to do community service. !

thought they sent drunks on a re hab course ???

Not for first offenders AFAIK ! I could be that is the community service my wife mentioned when they get caught the 2nd time (could be a mistranslation on my part 😉 )

Just a token gesture. Highly likely they only stopped and tested 20 drivers.

If they tested a hundred drivers, they might have found one sober. The odd one.

should this not read 200  !!!! 

They only arrested the drivers, it was hard to determine who actually  was driving and which of the other nine on the motorcycle were simply passengers.

The photo shows a perfect example that the cops turn a blind eye to traffic violations, not wearing a helmet while driving a motorcycle. 2 motorcyclist and a passenger have no helmets in the photo.
