It would be a good idea on Samui too, OK it will never happen, I am not so naive. But I'm curious to know how many in % are in good standing with the law. When there is a control for helmet's wearing in Samui no paper is requested, nothing at all, just to pay the fine, I guess that would be unbelievable in any country. In addition here it is the great fashion to ride without a helmet, young people and old alike, tourists or expats. Incredible the number without a helmet.

So they will collect a little fee to allow it to continue, is that how it will work?

The big deal is that in Chiangmai one in ten fatalities involving bikes is a foreigner. The majority of these involve hired bikes!
