Re Lads peeing publicly. The affair teaches us two things:
Firstly – They did not know the Thai culture so they peed into a Pattaya street.
We learn: It is fine British culture to pee anywhere in the streets.
Secondly – They were drunk so they stopped the car to pee.
We learn: Fined for the peeing and not the driving, it seems to be against Thai culture to urinate in the streets but obviously nobody cares if you drive under the influence of alcohol. (I dare not say it belongs to the culture here).
