Japanese Woman Stands Up To Law-Breaking Motorcyclists

A Japanese woman has been hailed a hero after bravely stopping motorcyclists from riding illegally on the pavement.

Megumi Morimoto, 46, was waiting for a taxi when a stream of bikers came whizzing towards her in Bangkok evening rush hour.

The middle-age woman bravely stood her ground and ordered the riders to leave the pavement and use the road at the Lam Salee intersection.

A motorcycle taxi with a passenger agreed to move to the road while another rider still refused to do so. She then moved her body to block his pathway as he was trying to pass through. The rider finally gave up and left the footpath.

Locals have hailed the lady a hero for ignoring the risks of being attacked and enforcing the country’s law – even when police officers routinely ignore it.

Motorcyclists who ride on the footpath face a fine of 2,000 baht but the law is widely flouted, often leading to attacks on people who stand up to motorcyclists.
