They dont use Facebook or line 

..and, yet, even though everyone isn't on FB and Line, hard to imagine people aren't (through word of mouth and television) getting up to speed that there's a big crisis going on that includes evolving public policy even policies that have to do with who can/should go where/when.

And there was a 40,000 baht receipt to show her fine.

 

The story said that Thong Lor police had issued their first fine. 

Along with their first ever receipt..

 

and so let off as non repeated offenders 🥱

Giving a  fine is  one thing, getting the money is an entirely  different  matter.

Yes, I am wondering what they do with a Thai that has no money. 40,000 baht is a year's income to many rural Thais.

Must be a great moneyspinner for the Bib while their brothels and other nefarious business activities are on lockdown. 

A 40,000 baht fine is the same as 200 motorbike riders (Thais) with no helmets.... serious kerching..

I expect everyone knows the time to stay home. But that 40000 fine is really huge.

Rightly so. but,

Everyone knows the speed limits.

Everyone knows the meaning of the colors of the traffic lights

Everyone knows the dangers of u-turns

Everyone knows about modifications to exhausts systems

Everyone knows about calling and texting while driving

Everyone knows the dangers to others when double parking on the busiest roads

And what else...

 

So let's just hope that the new order of these fines will influence the rest of the 'Mai bpen rai' behaviours in Thailand

The exact same attitude that many take every day with the laws in Thailand.

Its just selfish and arrogant.

It must be tough for the homeless people including those sleeping under the bridge.  I remember staying at a hotel in Chinatown in the late 90's.  We, Aussie G/f and I, went for a walk and to find a restaurant for dinner before dark.  Walking back to the hotel a couple of hours later after the shops were shut it seemed like every second doorway had a homeless person sleeping there.  Wind the clock forward to 2016 and my Thai wife and I stayed at another hotel in Chinatown and went for our evening walk before dinner and discovered a similar scene with homeless people.  [email protected] tough in Bangkok if you're out of luck and on the bottom of the pile!
