I do believe they had been drinking and were not paying attention. I also do notice that the pickup truck was parked in the lane next to the driving lanes, which is officially for motorbikes, but time and time again cars and motorbikes park there.

They are always parked there on the side of the road but at that point its wide enough and well lite and the road would have quiet at 5am not one of them noticed them parked there obviously not

There is usually 2 of them vans

I read that in Bangkok and surrounding provinces that 80% of motorbike riders wear helmets. The same article said that in Phuket only 20% of the people on motorbikes wear helmets. I am not sure why that is. It more than likely police just rarely ticket Thais here. And that is even more confusing since the police seem to want every baht they can from farangs. Seems like if they started enforcing it with Thais they would have a better life style since most police don’t write tickets if they can get the fine paid immediately to them.

I think these days it is much higher than 20%.

If there are checks everyone without helmet is fined, Thai and foreigner. And fines are paid on the spot, with receipt.

agree on a post about not fining thais, the cops were outside their cop shop on beach road Pattaya recently, (not far to go for dinner) they were targeting tourists, (dead give away, with the hire logo stuck on the front of the scooter) i not see one Thai get stopped, and literaly hundreds were ridng by  down beach road.all with no helmets. i think tourists see that many thais not wearing helmets here, and think it is not the law, not the case, then they find out too late.
