Fair play for the guy for making a stand, nothing will change though of course.

Technically I think it's called a sitting!Sorry I just couldn't resist!

My Mrs never accepts she has to stop when somebody is on a crossing, her excuse is the car behind might run into us. Most dangerous place to cross because some will stop and others don't. even on red light crossings. At least Thais usually shout at drivers now who just plough on ignoring the lights

So, if the cars don't have to stop for pedestrians on zebra crossings, what is the meaning of zebra crossings in Thailand ?

Perhaps they should call them pedestrian crossing. Zebra crossing could lead to misunderstandings.

So why is he sitting there, he doesn't appear to be hurt.

 

Couldn't he just get the drivers details and report her to the authorities for hitting an endangered species on a pedestrian crossing.

 

Land Traffic Act - B.E. 2522 (1979)

 

Section 104 (200B)
Pedestrian shall not cross a way within not more distance than 100 meters from a pedestrian crossing except in the pedestrian crossing.

2 things completely perplex me:

a) the way Thais think, their own braindeadness is hilariously funny!

b) the way, some expats think everything in Thailand is so great, it doesn't even need critical thinking to happen!

Maybe...just maybe...not every white dude is an expat, living in Thailand for 20 years and then suddenly snaps at a zebra- crossing!

What about tourists, who fail to google "how batsh*t crazy are Thai- drivers", before they come on a holiday to Thailand for the first (and most likely last...) time!

Very fair comment. Having said that though, when i got to Bangkok for the first time and saw with my own eyes the driving habits, it took me a very short time to work out that I need to take extra special care crossing the road. that's more common sense than googling for info on "bat<deleted> crazy Thai drivers".

 

Also, the man is just really making a holy show of himself. childlike really.
