Traffic line marking

What is of particular concern is the pedestrian crossings.

 

A pedestrian crossing near me is (supposed to be) controlled by a stop light. It's rare that vehicles even stop for that, let alone lines painted on the road indicating a crossing.

They've put brand new asphalt in the Asoke junctions but "forgot" to paint the line markings. Almost got crushed by an idiot driver going straight from the righmost turning lane.

Whilst I don't disagree with you, the problem concerning pedestrian crossings is far bigger than them not being clearly marked.

 

People have been killed on the crossing at the junction of Sukhumvit Road and Soi's 3 & 4 by drivers going through at red - right in front of a manned police box!

On a crossing in pinklao i have been almost hit by a police car and a cop on a motorbike.

I just wonder what EXACTLY is the law about pedestrians and crossings?

I don't think its any different to the law in the West.  However, the crossing I mention in Sukhumvit is controlled by traffic lights with a 'green man' and as I say, in front of a police box.  When the 'green man' shows the lights shown to traffic must be red - yet its still ignored.

The law is quite clear: Cars must stop for pedestrians at a pedestrian crossing (zebra crossing).

 

 

However, there’s no point in being dead right.....

Thanks for that.

Not being too much to ask could you quote the law number? thanks

There are no safe crossing points....

Unfortunately that is true, but you would think that a country that wants

to get out of  a third world status would look at it????

Sadly in the UK, mums often do the same with their kids in pushchairs.
