About 200 meters lower .. wheelchair or not, impossible to walk or roll on the sidewalk;

But what are the police doing ?
Nothing as usual 

You make the classic farang mistake of thinking that pavements are for people to walk on. BF ( before farang ) there were no pavements and people walked in the road with the buffalo carts. Just because the buffalo carts are replaced by cars don't think that mentality has ended.

Pavements in LOS are for food carts, restaurants to expand onto, sellers of almost anything that can be put on a hand cart, tables for outdoor beer bars, signs advertising shops etc etc etc. In short anything but walking on.

In Europe, North, Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand, China (yes in China) and other countries .. a sidewalk is part of the road used for traffic pedestrian, separate from the roadway and from all parking spaces.

Obviously some rare countries (Thailand, Vietnam ...) think that a sidewalk is made to install tables and chairs or stuff for traveling food.
So the pedestrian does not exist, is that how I understand it?

If all the pedestrians in Thailand start walking in the street, I know quite a few who, behind the wheel of their very expensive or not automobile, will not be happy.

A sidewalk is a place where you trot, or walk and where we don't  ride neither with your bike nor with your motorcycle and or do not park your stinking automobile.

I think thaibeachlovers was speaking tongue in cheek.

This is what happens when you get entangled with a baan nok Isaan bumpkin.

Although, if it makes you happy, it shouldn't matter in the least what others say.

Many here know that I am not a native Englishman;
so I had to go finding  the meaning of this expression.

It is possible that he wrote like that but without any smiley to make me understand it.
Smilies are very important on a forum; it gives an indication of what the member wants to write or respond to. :jap:

Small selection, there are dozens of abandoned houses and vehicles;
and I'm only in a very small part of the city ...

@Assurancetourix Until Owl gets his PC sorted out, can you share some about your bike riding? Are you using a bicycle or motorbike? If its a bicycle, did you buy it there in Thailand or bring it in from your home country? Thanks
