CityNews – Chiang Mai traffic police have summoned three students who were captured on a newly installed traffic violation CCTV camera going three on one bike, helmet-less and covering up the licence plate with a sandal.

 

Chiang Mai Traffic Police have installed roughly 300 CCTV cameras designed to capture traffic violators remotely, specifically focusing on bike riders without helmets. They have been publishing these photos on their Facebook page to identify the systemic problem with helmet-less riders.

I've seen twice, a more successful version of rear plate obscuring

 

A stock google shot, below:

p.s. the real ones I saw though were more effective, as the 'asian' riders at that time were shorter, & actually obscured their plates)

 

it was one of these perps which took me out whilst I was on my treddlie, years back...

More effective to fine the driver 3 times, while letting the two pillion riders go free.

Dear Buddha, please prevent me from writing something that may imply my indifference to the lives of the morons who make transportation more dangerous for all.

Great news, get more cameras operating and remove the idea that riding without a helmet will go unpunished, don't need big fines, community service picking up litter for example! Just to make people aware it is not cool to ride without a helmet.

Totally agree.. but would like to see the motorcycle impounded until the community service was successfully completed.

A lot of them? For kids like these, I doubt any of them have the legal documentation.

A stock shot evidently not in LoS. It shows an 'L' plate.

The helmet issue again...

Let them endanger themselves if they prefer to do so. Much more important to check their driving habits, knowledge of traffic rules, lights, brakes, mirrors and documents.

When I hit a biker at night without lights and drunk it doesn't really matter if he wears a helmet or not.

A friends daughter (18 years) lost a foot in a bike accident. Next time I saw her riding four on a bike. I checked the bike: no mirror, no hand brake, no lights, chain never lubed, rear brake hardly working. They just couldn't care less.

Now, let's not start another endless thread about Thai drivers and their mindset.

Totally agree. If they want to risk their life then let them do it. Up to them. If they drive in a manner dangerous to others, then pick them up and throw the book.

Fine all three for no helmets

Fine all three for overloading

Fine the back passenger for deliberately covering the registration plate, and the other two for being accessories to that act

Oh how the money rolls in

Just a very rare hope that those newly installed cameras incorporate sound recording ability.  Then just maybe someone will get the bright idea to go after the morons who are gutting their mufflers and racing around before dawn as well as at other times..... don't they need proper mufflers to pass inspection each year???
