Wear your motorbike helmet

Wear your motorbike helmets in Phuket - you will be fined.

Thai traffic law states that both drivers and passengers 
without helmets can be fined up to 500 baht. 
A driver transporting a passenger not wearing a helmet is subject to 
an additional fine of up to 1,000 baht.

Does that mean that a motorbike taxi 'person' must supply the passenger with a helmet?

Then I see the police do not necessarily wear a helmet?

Under section 122 of the Land Traffic Act of 2522, Police are exempt from wearing a helmet, as are monks, people wearing turbans or other religions which require wearing headwear.
