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

The police could actually enforce the laws about this.

Someone has to explain it to them as an untapped source of income then they might might wish to mine.

You are the one with the mental disorder, you must suffer from a 'pseudo stockholm syndrome' where you assume your host country can do no wrong instead blaming the victim. 

 

A Japanese girl recently stood her ground on the pavement / sidewalk when a motorcycle tried to ride past. Much to her acclaim there was much comment in the news and social media. 

 

This is another such issue where someone has rightly had enough, the protesting man was hit while crossing a road, that's more significant than 'I too am upset if someone does stop' - read the op again he was hit. Now, it is extreme to react when you are hit by a car which brakes the law. 

 

The Pedestrian crossing laws in Thailand are very much the same as they are in other Western Countries such as the UK. The failings in Thailand are down to the poor enforcement and the attitudes of drivers that people who are not walking are below them (i.e. if you can afford a car you don't walk).

 

 

 

 

 

The driver is to blame. But the farang has no right to sit in the middle of the road and block the whole traffic. But for you his behavior is normal like your behavior to insult me here.

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

He's sitting down and all he has achieved is looking like a numpty.

 

Maybe it's a small scale global warming protest along the lines of

the ones in London.

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.

I agree the laws are stupid (and often unenforced) and most Thai drivers are clueless   IF he wants to survive he is in their country and needs to be realistic - our old countries laws and customs do not necessarily apply here and if he thinks they should it may cost him his life.  It's not as you say "assimilated into the ranks of the dumb" it is survival.
