A handicapped Thai woman confined to a wheelchair went on Facebook to complain about the sidewalks in Bangkok.
 
In the Din Daeng area between the Chinese Embassy and the Stock Exchange of Thailand building she said there were S-Guards to stop motorcyclists using the sidewalk.
 
But it also stopped her and forced her into the busy and dangerous main road. 
 
She called on the authorities to rectify the situation.
 
Comment was rife on social media following the post, noted Daily News.

The bollards are the dumbest possible solution to an already ignorant problem.

But, no, it's not that silly.
It is only incomplete.
Apparently there is access just before the stakes.
The motorcycles had to use it for a shortcut and happily take the sidewalk.
Now, only pedestrians can access it, without danger.
For strollers, wheelchairs, bicycles, you should widen the strip along the sidewalk, and put, why not, separation stakes.
