Police in Bangkok have just started their latest crackdown. We all know it won’t last long of course, but at least the message is getting out there. Motorcyclists who are riding on the sidewalk are now being stopped by the police and fined. Personally I’m happy about this as numerous times I have been nearly hit by speeding motorcyclists. Their heavy bikes also do a lot of damage to the paths and manhole covers making it dangerous for pedestrians and impassable for people in wheelchairs. I hope they keep this one up. But, they do need to lead by example as I have seen police cops riding on the sidewalk too.
