Now it's "Rot Tit" on the sidewalk! Motorcycles - even police - adding to Bangkok pedestrian woes

Daily News laid into motorcyclists for brazenly flouting the law after a picture on the site of JS 100 Radio showed a traffic jam (rot tit) of bikes on the sidewalk at Lat Prao Soi 101. 

 

Pedestrians could not get through as the motorcycles crowded the walkways, they said. 

 

Daily News slammed the riders for their "couldn't care less" attitude saying that the law is toothless. 

 

They said that netizens responded to the pictures by saying that vendors had been cleared from the capitals pavements only for motorcycles to increasingly take over and bring more headaches to pedestrians. 

 

Some even said that police were often seen riding on the sidewalks of Bangkok as well as going the wrong way against traffic. 

 

Thaivisa notes that riding on the footpath in the capital has been going on since the invention of the motorcycle.Efforts to rein in the riders - including a rat on your neighbor campaign - have proved ineffectual. 

 

Most pedestrians in Bangkok know that they have to watch out for bikes both on and off the road.

Roads for cars, sidewalks for bikes, skywalk for people. Only in Thailand!

This is business as usual in Vietnam, and no one cares or even has a on the books for it.

It's only during the rush hour.

 

And pedestrians should be on the bus rather than walking in this heat.

Rot Tit?

 

Is this really how you say traffic jam?

Did they just figure this out? This has been going on forever.

 

If the so called police would enforce the law it would stop. Start fining people in these areas and make it a big fine like 1000 baht.

 

This is a dangerous situation. I can't tell you how many times I was almost run down by a bike on the sidewalk.

 

I'm glad to be out of that crazy town since I moved to Pattaya. Still crazy but not many bikes on the sidewalk.

I don't understand why if the problem is so serious that simple offset steel tubes that only  accommodate pedestrians are not placed at the  usual points of entry which  is usually intersections  or  vehicle access points. No so many  would  be willing to  jump the kerb to  get onto  the footpath.

The Thai government only have themselves to blame as they or the people under their control e.g. RTP are too spineless to enforce the law.

Isn't there a law against copying an entire article to make a one sentence comment?

And another one against driving on the walkways?
