Sirichai told the media that strictly speaking motorcycles were not meant to be on the bridge but many did use it

So again Thai people just don't care about rules and 5 dead because they not respect rules and regulations 

here it is not government to blame but Thai people there not care about rules

Motorbikes aren't even supposed to be on the bridge ... but hey, who cares about the rules huh. If you disregard the law then you are rolling-the-dice (probably still rolling-the-dice if you do follow it), so deal with the downside if you get caught out as there is no nanny state here.

It's an expansion joint/shrinkage control joint.

That may be correct, but why is it running lengthwise? Back home they are always running the width of the bridge.

As a non-native English speaker I don´t understand. Makes no sense for me. I never saw a speaking motorcycle.

Slow moving vehicles are supposed to use the left lane...if a motorcycle can't use the right hand lane how would they ever do a U-turn ?

Right. And they are only allowed to overtake on the right side. If there is a very slow truck on the left lane, they have to drive on the right lane.

Ok I think  it should be

"Strictly speaking, motorcycles are not meant to be on the bridges but many do use them."

 

"strictly"   in this case meaning according to the road traffic law.

Ha, now I understand. And some people say grammar is not important. With a comma it makes sense. Thank you.

Don't know this particular place but would assume some type of structural movement joint directly underneath because it not something you would generally design on a road surface in that direction.

The width also appears to indicate excessive movement but there are many different types of flexible control joint fillers that would still allow moment without the obvious current issues.

 

Maybe this is why they banned motorcylces as the article states?
