    Noise, there has to be noise!

    Pretty common in most countries as far as the loud exhausts on peoples motorcycles and cars. The trucks and commercial stuff makes no sense to me but maybe that explains why their trucks can barely manage 5 KPH when going uphill, although that could also be the fact that Thai's have no clue what downshifting is.

    An Annoyance for Me, What About You

    There's so much to fix I don't think they know where to start. Just a short list: 1. Develop a professional police force. 2. Minimize the rampant corruption. 3. Greatly improve the education system. It's how Japan, Korea, China, India, etc. are able to push to 1st world status. 4. Do something about the obscene wealth inequality. 99%+ of the folks here are extremely poor. When the people have no hope they can become extremely dangerous. At the end of the day, anyone who fixes 1 or 2 of these problems would be in power forever in Thailand.

    An Annoyance for Me, What About You

    Don't know about the endowment part but where I'm from in the U.S., there are laws on the books about loud exhausts and people still ride around on super loud motorcycles and never get hassled by the police. A lot of police in the area have extremely loud motorcycles and trucks/cars, so that probably has something to do with it. As for the Thai police, they don't really enforce anything so expecting them to enforce this is probably a bridge too far.
