"Jumping jacks" cop says no fines for helmet-less kids because "it will cause hardship to their parents"

Recommended Posts

you know what is even more ridiculous, I will bet money that after this stupid stunt they were allowed to continue their journey to school without helmets

But the whole idea of a fine is to cause hardship. Otherwise it's not a punishment and/or a deterrent. It ain't rocket science! In fact, this stupid copper's actions could have the complete reverse effect and result in more kids riding without helmets because, if caught, they just have to jump up and down a few times. Mental.

Unbelievable.....so having your child killed or

crippled for life with a head injury wouldn't 

be a burden on the family....Stupid is a step up!

Enforce the LAWS. Don't make up your own!!

his cop should lose his job.  He is no hero, and these kids never learned a thing about the

dangers of not having and using helmets. Wonder how many will live to be adults?

Geezer

I think a lot more hardshipo will be suffered when the kid's brains are spread all over the road.

Really it is the perfect example of the Thai mindset. When not being entirely selfish, do an apparently good deed to make yourself feel good without any thought whatsoever to the more important facts. They are still looking at the shadows in the cave and entirely miss the big picture.

 

It would be cute except this mostly affects the adults which just makes it rather stupid.

But if siht(anagram) happens then that is the will of Buddha. No amount of helmets will protect you.

I may not agree with his thinking but I do understand it. There has to be a better way of punishment than a monetary fine. Perhaps taking the motorcycle off them for a week (increasing weeks for repeat offenders)? And/or many many hours of community work? Perhaps the state could find some way of subsidising cost of helmets to make them affordable to the lower paid citizens? If this could be an answer and they didn't wear them, then a draconian punishment should be expected.
