Stopping for pedestrians at zebra crossings – Can Thai Rath change Thai driving habits?

Influential Thai news media Thai Rath have posted a “training” video on Facebook in an effort to make Thai drivers stop at zebra crossings.

The video of about a minute duration asks the pertinent question:

Why don’t people stop?

They showed a person in a car stopping for people to cross saying that it won’t take more than a few seconds out of your day – and everyone will be happy including yourself!

Pedestrians – who were also urged to cross in the right places in the video – were asked if they feel irritated when drivers don’t stop?

The video – that contains one or two other tips for driving in Bangkok – ends with the noble idea:

We can be better as a society. It is up to the individual.
