Wanna get 2,500 baht? Report a motorcyclist today!

Wanna get 2,500 baht? Report a motorcyclist today!

Sanook! News are so incensed that motorcyclists in Bangkok are still riding on the sidewalks of the capital that they have itemized for the public all the ways to report riders. 

 

And they said that doing so means you get half the fines - that could mean 2,500 baht for reporting both riding or just parking on pavements. 

 

Here's what to do:

 

First of all take a picture.

 

Then provide details in one of a number of ways:

 

Via LINE "Reward for informing" at ebn6703w

 

Tessakit (municipal authorities) on Facebook

 

Via email:  [email protected]

 

Call the tessakit on 02 465 6644 or on 1555

 

use snail mail: 1, Tessaban Sai1, Wat Kanya, Thonburi 10600

 

or go to one of 50 tessakit offices

 

Provide all the details and get half of the maximum 5,000 baht fine for riding or parking on the sidewalk. 

 

Try it, get money and help eradicate motorcyclist on the sidewalk, said the media. 

 

Thaivisa notes that reporting people in this way has resulted in money being given to the public for informing over about the last year. 

 

But Sanook issued the reminder after an incident involving a 16 year old female student who was injured in Lat Prao earlier this week.

Just patrol the route between Thonglor and Phrom Phong between 17h00 and 19h00, almost daily you will get rich from all the motorcycles riding on the sidewalk at high speed or deliberately forcing pedestrians out of the way which could be reported.

"Take a picture then we'll do something about it." 

I watch cops stand on the side of the road during rush hour - their job - directing traffic.  Enforcing traffic laws?  Not really.  Motorcyclists driving on the sidewalks, cars in driving on the shoulders, vehicles driving the wrong direction on the shoulders of the highway -- who cares?  Cops don't seem to.  So, no enforcement - no problem.  Drive how you wish.  The Citizen Snitch Patrol will take the place of law enforcement.

It's not a crime, it's just outta desperation, as roads are too small and packed.

i don't mind, as long as they don't hit people, let them do.

There are many motorbike taxi parking areas on sidewalks so as not to interfere with traffic. I'd be surprised if they were permanently evicted by any authority. I hope the injuries to the school girl were not too serious and that she recovers completely and soon. Now, where did I put that camera?

They tried this before but very few people actually got paid for their snitching because you dont get it until after the offender has paid the fine.  So many Thais just ignore the fines and nobody seems to care.  Back home the police would come knocking on your door if you had unpaid fines.  I guess thats difficult here because there is no "working" police force.
