Photographer's Note

Motor bikes are utilised very well in Asia, not uncommon to see the whole family on the bike. In this photo we have kids on their way home from school in Bangkok. On the small side streets they are not required to wear helmets.
I was travelling in a car on a main road once, when I observed two kids on a bike trying to speed past a traffic cop. To my horror right in front of my eyes he lunged out at the driver of the bike with his trunceon knocking the bike and kids to the ground on a busy roadway. They had no helmet on and so were braking the law. This action could have killed them and caused a more serious accident. No escaping the long arm of the law here.(unless you have a 100 baht tip for the cop!).
