Phuket continuing for 100% helmets

Phuket continuing for 100% helmets

Phuket is still pushing hard with its campaign for 100% of riders & passengers on motorbikes to wear helmets. It is the law in Thailand that people on motorbikes wear a helmet be they foreigners, Thai, tourists, locals, young or old.

Statistics show that riders & passengers who wear a helmet have a 5% better chance of surviving an accident than those who don’t.

So please do not blame the police if you are stopped for not wearing a helmet, it is the law, and the helmets should be worn for your safety not theirs!!!
