Bet they were so busy laughing they did not check his licence or insurance, or whether he is old enough to drive.

You are on error: Because he is too young, he does not need license and cannot be fined.

The whole episode probably has a positive outcome.

You can wear whatever protects you, if you ain't got the cash to buy the real thing

I guess there is no need to explain it to you guys, but this kid does not seem to get the fact that his pot does not offer any protection, from anything other than flying debris! It is as likely to crush his skull and maim his face during a crash, as the pavement he will be hurled onto. Or was he just trying to be "cute"? Common sense? Let us not have any of that please.

The main cause is that they can't drive safely.

 

PS. Note the lack of mirrors.

 

Edit. And no number plate on the bike.

No. Amid the humour is the stark reality that it's not acceptable for Thai police to take a hard line, especially as the kids were showing some sign of attempting to do things right...

Recently after commenting on a video (which showed a policeman smiling - and taking no action - whilst getting Wai's from three schoolgirls in the middle of a busy junction - all on the same bike and no helmet) I was criticised by Thai's (none supported) saying that they should ALL get locked up, police first.

Which is on the back.

Ok, after my fourth attempt to view the pic, it looks like there is one.

Just as effective as the usual fruit bowls, I suppose.

why not?   

in 2019, it makes sense.  it's a joke.  it's all a joke.  imagine in "saha raht Americaaaah" the serious culture where folks from South Amerikee are labeled as "marching" into North Amerikee  ... by the president of the United States of America.... and that among them are "Mexican Rapists".   instead of "flying" like all normal people do nowadays!  or riding around in 125 CC scooters instead of 1,200 CC whatever or a car as big as a small house...... in Thailand.    

so yeah.  put a pot on your head!  it makes sense.  because it is funny,
