BANGKOK: -- About ten percent of traffic police officers in Bangkok recently failed a test on road laws and have been banned from writing tickets until they improve.

 

Approximately 370 traffic officers, of the force’s 3,719, failed the 50-question test on Aug. 27, according to Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) deputy chief Jirapat Phumjit.

 

The questioned covered general Thai laws as well as road-specific knowledge on rulings such as the Land Transport and Motor Vehicle acts he said. The ones who missed questions, tended to do so on newer traffic legislation, reported Bangkok Post.

Did we miss the point?....they pushed away the officers who had the lowest quota of entering tea-money?

Maybe being able to read is not a prerequisite either.

What was the pass/fail threshold? 60%?

I am going to guess 50% :whistling:

Maybe they will not be out there actually writing tickets, but I am sure they will still be out there collecting "fines".
