Checkpoints have no use if they just take drivers money and send them on their way. What should happen is:
1. Tell them to buy a helmet and come back to collect their bike
2. Straight into jail
3 + 4. Confiscate their vehicle until  they show proof
This is the rule in Western countries, but never in Thailand. Here it's money before safety

What a waste of time. I can imagine none of these offences, no insurance, driving licence will be followed through. Would they be asked to bring in their documents, i doubt it. Just another fine and on your way thank you, still driving about with no insurance, back lights out and so on.

At Hayek Chalong, The Chalong Police Station are doing much more better that Police Kathu checkpoint....with only 39 motorists arrested and fined on-site.... Businesses are suffering from those spontaneous checkpoints because catched foreigners go straight back to their hotels without going ahead for shopping and visiting Chalong-Rawai areas.
