Overpass for pedestrians in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai has quite alot of overpasses like this. Traffic can be quite dangerous and overpass give people a safe way to cross the road! Although,  I’ve see a couple in town, which I don’t think anyone ever uses. Locals prefer crossing the road, risking the traffic, then walking half a mile to get to the bridge and then climbing stairs. Who blames them? When its at least 30C you go for the shortest way to cross a road, not the safest:-)   ( yes yes me too)

Thai people worship the Royal Family and these crossing are another way for them to show their love and respect.
