1. Let's hope there's no 'Thai price'.

2. Let's also hope that retail outlets are able to satisfy the demand for helmets in sizes that actually fit non-asian heads before this actually kicks off.

Yeah I know, "Thing(k) Too Mutt" smile.png

That's not too bad, after a grace period of about 19 years since it became law in the rest of the country.

I saw a cop riding down the road here in Pattaya with no helmet on. Saw one in Bangkok last month doing the same thing. Next time, I'll try to take a picture! LOL

They are laws, in force for a long time. Why wait for 1/3 to start imp,ementing them. In my opinion the police are negligent in not enforcing these laws now. And what about all the kids riding motorbikes to school with no licence?

I hope they do it better than in Krabi.

Where they have signs put up with the fines that have to be paid.

BUT where you see MANY riders with NO helmets.

The saying LAWS WERE MADE TO BE BROKEN.

MUST have been written in Thailand.
