But a court will decide on the penalty for driving without due care and attention thus endangering others

I can see the insurance claim form already:

My car was damaged beyond repair after a collision with the other vehicle.

The delinquent teenage passenger deliberately hit and smashed my windscreen with his head, after flying through the air.

They have the power to impose a prison sentence of three months and/or a fine between 2,000 and 20,000 baht, reported Daily News.

Impose the 20,000 baht fine with a suspended 3 months... just to make the father understand his idiotic actions!

I drive everyday and see three or four on a scooter, babes in arms included. Pickup trucks drive at highspeed with hapless laborers packed into the rear bed. Large construction trucks rumble around, with some of the crew perched atop without a care in the world. Not a peep from the shocked, Thai public.

 

I would say this lad is low on the list of dangerous behaviors.

this is just more of the poor parenting skills in Thailand, they let the kids do as they please and refuse to pull them into line and chastise them. Add to that they dont even consider what is safe for the kids, in a lot of the cases it is plain laziness on the parents part. They allow their kids to rule them rather than say no, parenting skills in Thailand are basically pathetic unfortunately, really doubt we will see any improvement in it until we get a govt & police force that will enforce laws and issue big fines and penalties

First thing you learn as a parent is don't give into tantrums, as you dig a very deep hole for yourself.

No noooooooo new parents  will say its  just the child "expressing themselves" my Dad expressed his  with a thwack, worked ok for me and a thwack does not equate  to a violent beating before the child abusers  jump in, if you want to go down that path then you need to throw religion into the mix as  anyone teaching a young kid that its real is an abuser in my eyes.

Why are the drivers of these school ' buses' allowed to carry kids in this manner. Perhaps it will take a rear end shunt which puts the kids in wheelchairs for the rest of their lives before action is taken...... or maybe not !

This is what happens when parents are not allowed to reprimand/'educate'/tell their offsprings who's in charge....

What a load of bull. There's ample ways to reprimand/educate/tell offspring who's in charge without doing anything remotely illegal or morally heinous.

Does that apply to a driver that does not enforce wearing of seat belts in the car?

Stupid yes - but Is this any worse than the (probably) millions of children who ride on motorbikes or in sidecars every day with no helmets or protection ?

Or hanging on to the back of a pick-up truck or a "school bus"
