Southern Thailand???

According to the person signing this post, this change was recently enacted in Southern Thailand. Just so you know if you're headed that way. From this post, we assume that no change has been made in the Northern provinces...

Male pillion-riding in the south of Thailand (Yala, Pattani,
Narathiwat) has just been banned. While this has often been the
transport method of choice for assassinations in Bangkok (bike
alongside a limo in heavy traffic) and elsewhere, recent problems in
the south of Thailand have seen something of an upsurge of bike-related
terrorist activities (although the Prime Minister does not like anyone
to use the "T" word) : machete attacks, arson, bombings and the more
mundane shootings.

Females are still permitted to ride as passengers on bikes.
