I see no shame in his behaviour. Surely the shame should be on those who behaviour results in the law being broken? 

But there are laws and regulations how to handle such things. Sitting in the middle of the road and blocking the traffic is for sure not one of them.

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

It´s simply a place where people are advised to cross the road. You ever seen a jaywalking sign?

Forgive him, He not know about Thai style Zebra crossing....

He could have been forgiven, if he had been taking the explaination and advice. Hell, the Thai female drvier even wai to him. As he act showing his extreme mentality, he can not be forgiven. His face should up on posters in shame.

Same as all other road markings and signs in Thailand. To be ignored. 

No, they are not. Most drivers does not ignore them. Some, even many, do and thats the ones we see and recognize. After that it´s easy to judge a total population based on that, which is totally unfair.

Under Thai traffic laws, what are vehicles required to do with respect to zebra crossings?  Are they required to give pedestrians the right of way once they step foot in the zebra crossing?  Or are the Thai traffic laws silent on this point?

They are by law not required to do anything. Pedestrians are the ones that should use the crossings. That because it´s safer as many of them also have traffic lights, as well as they will not risk beeing fined for jay walking.

According to international agreements on the Traffic Code, pedestrian crossings must be paint in the street. The problem is that the majority of people does not respect the use of pedestrian crossings and the police do not sanction misconduct.

Yep, in fact mine was a rhetorical question.

When you start making fun of a tourist who may have been experiencing his first pedestrian crossing in Thailand instead of the ridiculous laws and stupid Thai drivers...you know you have been here too long and you have been assimilated into the ranks of the dumb.

 

Congratulations.

Oh, come on, it's just a bit of healthy cynicism.

Btw, the guy was not hurt, and his protesting with a sit-in is rather funny.

Wonder if he's still sitting there.

Arrest him for blocking a public road.

Obviously he has a right to be upset. But he has no right to block the road.
