Amazing (Trusted) Thailand: Now non-mask wearers are made to do cultural dance as punishment

A video from southern Thailand shows motorcyclists being made to do the cultural dance of "ramwong" around their vehicles for not wearing masks.

 

The local Phu Yai Ban (responsible village leader) thinks this action - accompanied by a song of your choice - will stop negligence.

 

None of the people in the video are wearing helmets and one of the people is carrying a very young child.

 

Thai media 77kaoded reported that Thai netizens loved the idea and we're heaping praise on Sanan "Tu" Mengbut for his wonderful idea that he revealed on Facebook. 

 

Sanan said that he had noticed lots of motorcyclists without masks at a checkpoint. This was unconscionable so he decided to teach them a lesson in a pleasant, cultural manner.

 

People were given a free mask to wear.

Said Sanan, the village leader in Lamthap sub district: "It's much better than going further up the road and being fined by the police and raises awareness. 

 

"Some are choosing to sing the Loy Krathong song, whatever they fancy".

 

Thaivisa notes that wearing a face mask when out in Thailand on a motorcycle is not illegal, though not wearing a helmet is a no-no, sometimes dealt with by the police. 

 

Amazing Trusted Thailand is the new slogan of the Tourism Authority of Thailand that is being rolled out in October to replace Amazing Thailand in a bid to woo back tourists, post pandemic.

That's terrible, humiliating them in public.  What about their dignity and human rights

some people are thick as a brick.  You know as well as I Thais have zero respect for the laws. They drive any way they want.  Throw trash as they please.  Helmet, no helmet.  3 to 5 on a motorcycle.  You comment is laughable.  Unbelievable that this is violating there Human Rights.

I’d be happy to dance a little, as opposed to paying a fine.

Im also in favor of stocks for thieves, violent offenders etc, generally criminals not respecting others human rights. Now they deserve zero dignity.

And maybe some people will actively go out with no mask and helmet so they can put their video on tiktok in the hope of going viral.
