I was going to say "Yep, easily done:-  ทางม้าลาย"

But put "pedestrian crossing" in google translation from English to Thai but then do the reverse ทางม้าลาย from Thai to English.....😆

 

translates to Crossing Pedestrian? bandenspoor op gezicht... misschien iets voor Halloween? | Face painting  halloween, Diy halloween face, Halloween costumes makeup

Most Thai drivers have no idea what a zebra crossing means. You take your life in your own hands using one.

Thai society is not mature enough to have ‘zebra crossings’ the reliance on everyone to ‘do the right thing’ is too much and those crossing the road are too vulnerable - I agree with those posters so

Totally agree they just give unwary pedestrians a false sense of security.

I've seen many westerners who walk slowly across Zebra crossing in Thailand not knowing the danger it posed.

No charges have yet been made, said Daily News, as the matter is still under investigation. 

 

The driver was named only as "A".

"A" was driving like an A

 

charge him

They should remove the zebra crossings in Thailand. The most dangerous place to cross the road. I have nearly been run over twice crossing them,

even more dangerous for someone on a motorbike that stops, the chance of getting rear ended are significant

Today you have lots of paint being used and more signs but the problem no one knows what these things actually mean and those who are supposed to enforce is part of the group from leaders, judges, police none of them ever been taught properly so the problems continue because the police will be judge and jury instead of applying the law and moving it forwards to the courts.

 

The solution, the insurance will make the pay out and the BIB will be just happy with that because they actually think they have solved the problem when in fact they are the problem.

Never trust them here 

They looked like they were in the middle of the road, he must have seen them but the speed that he was going he couldn't do anything, the student with her had a lucky escape.

As the video shows the driver is an animal.

Most drivers don't stop at all. I see this every day at school.

You go to a zebra crossing and it seems that once they see you crossing the road, they accelerate.

Also, whenever crossing a side road, cars coming out of this road never ever let you cross the road.

They probably think that they are superior because if you need to walk, you must be low class.

..well it is all about education..but when the fine is 200 baht, how ever are pedestrians going to win?...saying that, ALL pedestrian crossings should have flashing lights, clear signage on the approaches and surface painted regularly, plus a Crossing Guard provided by the Amphur Office during school hours..that should help methinks.

Oh how many times cars have raced past me on the inside while stopped at a zebra crossing very nearly hitting a pedestrian. Just to get ahead of others. Yes, they are animals and idiots. Jail for manslaughter at least. Put police patrols on the road and catch these animals like most civilized countries.

There is a pedestrian crossing in town in town that even has traffic lights and guess what .... drivers fly through them aswell. If walking or driving here I suggest activating your spidey senses because you need eyes everywhere. From driving on the wrong side of the road, on pavements, slamming breaks on and then indicating. If indicators are on, one can pull out infront of any fast moving traffic and flashing lights at someone means I am coming so you better get out of the way and allsorts of buffoonery at traffic lights. I see this and more on a daily basis and I dont see it changing anytime soon.
