Double parking on major roads (without a care in the world) and causing traffic to pile up
Drivers pulling out from side road without looking
Letting dogs run unchecked on the beach
Children who refuse to give up seats for adults on public transport
Authorities allowing parking on major roads and causing traffic to slow as three lanes merge into two - in the West cars parked on major roads are towed away within minutes of parking.
Three or four people riding on one motor bike, without helmets.
Friday police collection strategy and causing traffic hold ups

Come's under JD's Noise etiquette.

Taking a huge mouthful of food and immediately making a phonecall.
Eating with the mouth open and the sounds that are produced by that exercise.
Also.
Wearing a builders hard hat as a helmet.
When wearing a proper helmet why not do up the chin strap?? (I've seen cops do this too)

Riding motorcycles whilst shopping at markets.
Riding a motorcycle along the road and just stopping without warning at a roadside food outlet, and conducting their business from the back of the bike.
The 2 above basically refer to many Thais having lost the power of their legs making it impossible for them to walk anywhere.

Holding the helmet on top of the head instead of putting on properly.

Carrying the helmet in the basket so as not to mess the new hairdo.

"Different sense" of spatial awareness, especially on staircases, escalators, doorways, etc

No use of handbrake when parking and parking across the backs of other cars in dept. stores etc

Filling and (constant) refilling drinks glass for friends/guests
