Virtually no one wears a helmet in any village. I've never seen a policeman in my GF's village, so why would they? Zero enforcement.

How about idiots who try to drive while playing around with their smart phone?

 

We have to thank Steve Jobs for that.

An exhaustive list no doubt! How innovative.

that would be EVERY driver and motor cyclist in my village. They all have a death wish once on the road.

Why?

The person who does not wear the helmet has the risk and maybe the injury or he dies. If I don't wear a helmet and I crash in your car you don't have to worry about my head.

Because supposedly this is the law when I rode in the states if I was in a state that didn't have a helmet law I wouldn't wear one in my home state of Georgia they had a helmet law and it was enforced if they're not going to enforce the law then they need to do away with it

Interesting that older drivers being targetted, I wonder what theThai stats show about accidents and older drivers.

Western stats show less accidents per capita on over 55 year old drivers until age 75.

 

Yes I thought that the majority of those killed and injured during MY were youngsters.

Yesterday, I saw a police officer in full uniform being given a lift on a motorbike by a civilian who was not wearing a helmet.  Is that ridiculous or what ?

Yes, he should have his own motorbike...😁

Years ago people were not reading newspapers while driving their cars.

 

I see there that you did not know the Italian motorways in the years 70/80;
the readers of newspapers did not drive cars but what one called at the time of the "millipede",. these 8-axle trailer trucks which often weighed more than 100 tonnes with engines rarely exceeding 250 hp .. with the particularity of having the steering wheel on the right while in Italy you drive on the right.
On the mountain highways, especially the one that goes from Bologna to Firenza, they rolled in first small, the door of the cabin opened thanks to their right foot and the newspaper unfolded in front of them ...

 

and once at the top of the pass, they descended in the same way, always on the first slow in order to use their brakes very little; so in complete safety, what the Thai truckers do not do and why they often find themselves at the ravine
