When Soi Buakhao becomes lake Buakhao the boys in brown abandon their posts. You can get away without wearing helmets during these times but you will get soaked.


Helmets are worn for a reason wouldn't you think so and they are not only to keep your head dry . Use your common sense and wear one at all times if only to keep your head dry .

I certainly do Sir and believe eveybody should. Even the kids that ride motor bikes to school everyday but don't wear helmets. They seem to be excempt from police check points. Maybe parents and police need a re-think.

just last week after playing a pool match on the dark side my wife said she would like to go for a run to jontiem on the bike, i have done this many times without helmets after midnight so was not concerned, however when we reached pattaya klang she told me to head into pattaya and lo and behold on 2nd road we were stopped at a routine check and promptly written a ticket for no helmets. after being assured they were going to be there for some time ( it would not be the first time i have returned to the same spot only to find my license and the police gone, and that can be a nightmare ) well anyway my wife asked me what i thought this would cost us and i thought 1,000 baht as i had previousley been fined 500 baht on the darkside. i was was absolutely amazed when i was asked for only 200 baht for the 2 of us, we then proceeded to talk about my homeland scotland which is always a good topic with the thais as everyone i know loves whiskey. they then started discussing my wife one of the policeman in particular saying she was very beautiful, i said we are married already, he then asked if we had any children, at that we just smiled and i told him " not easy " having a good chuckle when we left.

then 2 days ago i was at the bypass on soi nernplabwan when we were stopped again, this time we had our helmets on but i had changed shorts before i left and forgot to put my license in my pocket. that will be 400 baht he said to my wife, knowing he could not speak english i bravely told him to fuck off i would give him 200 baht, he then pointed across road and told my wife big boss 400 baht. at this i again said fuck off and proceeded to get on to a motorbike taxi with the intentions of going the 2 kilometers to my home to collect my license but was told again through my wife that this would not be acceptable as i did not have license with me when stopped, so i had to stump up left saying a few more choice words as i left.

at the end of the day it is peanuts and nothing is put on your license unlike the u.k. but these checks do appear to increasing i would say it was for there christmas funds but they do not celebrate christmas


If you have a thai mbike license its only a credit card sized license so you should keep it in your wallet. If its an International License then keep it in a small plastic wallet with your other documents inc copy of your passport,under the mbike seat, which they can ask for.

When I was resident there I got stopped quite a few times on the railway road bypass and first thing they as for is the license then the tax disc, always wore my helmet anyway as you should do.

When hiring a bike even for only a week I purchase a new helmet from Big C or one of the larger bike dealers in town.


Same here.
the rentals never fit and are dirty.
500 baht, and you get one that fits and is clean.
might end up saving your life.

have both thai driving licenses but had just changed shorts and omitted to put my card wallet in my pocket, yes the bypass junctions are the worst for reguler checks. i know i should always wear helmet and if i know i am going beyond bypass i always do but tend to be lazy like 90% of the residents in the dark side when only nipping out to the 7 / 11 etc. i very rarely drink so i am always sober but that is still no reason to avoid wearing helmet

I must say i am a culprit, although i have never hired a bike, i do take quite a few Moto taxi's, up until 10/11pm i always wear a helmet, but alcohol takes over after this time and i tend not to wear one...stupid i know...

why do you not want to wear a helmet [ it is the law] if you where back in england you would not think twice about wearing a helmet and to any piss artist who thinks it is funny to ride their bikes when they have had a skinful of beer then the only thing i hope you knock down is some fucking hard object like a lamp post etc, i don't give a fuck who i annoy with this reply, one of my relatives is a nurse at a hospital and she comes home crying sometimes because of little children rushed into casualty and wheeled off to the operating theatre because some fucking idiot decide to ride his bike or drive his car when he could barely walk straight.


eh? have you examined those helmets the moto taxis give you? in an accident they would be about as useful as tits on a bull...

I've fallen a motorbike many times (not in Thailand). Not once have I ever landed on my head. I've landed on my ass plenty of times. They should make us wear ass helmets.

i agree they are not top quality, but they save you getting a fine from the boys in brown, also it is the law - so i ask why not wear one.

Yesterday night the BIB setup a checkpoint on the corner of soi Buakhao and the soi that goes to the rear of the Avenue Shopping Complex. There were a good number of policemen on both sides of the street. They had many Thai and falangs pulled over, probably for not wearing helmets. Buakhao usually doesn't get that kind of attention from the police but there you go - just another sign of it getting more popular.


Had this sort of attention for years. Same as all the other sois. No more. No less.

They were out on soi buakeaow last night, near the turn off to the avenue but I don't think they were looking for helmets. I didn't have mine on and I thought they flagged me over, the copper looked at me and said 'go mister go'.

They were pulling Thais over left right and centre, may have been doing piss tests by the looks of it.

I got pulled over and I was wearing a helmet. The BIB couldn't stop laughing. Apparently I'd misunderstood the law, it only applies to riding a motorbike and not while driving a car.
