Channel 3 reported on a Facebook video that showed a Sri Racha traffic cop give some alternative punishment to a young man on his way to pick up his mum.

 

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet and asked to do 50 press-ups instead of paying a fine. Constable Amnat Phathaisong took further pity on him and said that 20 would be enough.

 

The Bo Win traffic cop told reporters that the young man recognized that he was in the wrong and was allowed to go on his way after a talking to.

 

Channel 3 reported that netizens praised the cop for his attitude in comments on Facebook.

The teens in their current level of fitness will probably need two days to do the 50.

After being fined they ride off without their helmets also, no difference.

Nonsense.  It is not that simple, police everywhere, not only in Thailand, are allowed to exercise a certain degree of discretion about whether to issue a fine or a give a warning.   That's what happened in this case.
