Road carnage: Now there are prizes for the best dash cam clips!

Daily News in cooperation with the national legislature, police and anti drink driving foundation are giving prizes for the best road carnage videos from dash cams.

 

It is hoped that they will help lessen accidents, raise the issue of bad driving and bring miscreants to justice.

 

It is part of the news media's "Volunteer Eyes of the Traffic" campaign.

 

Top prize of 20,000 baht goes to Wipawee Janthadee with "Pick Up Hit and Run". Her video from March 24th shows Nopadol Wongwongsa, 38, collide with a motorcycle on the Chonburi bypass heading for Pattaya.

 

 

Nopadol said he didn't see what happened but has since admitted all to Samet police who continue to investigate and wait for further reports on the state of the victim in hospital.

 

This video featured what looked like a chase through a red light.

 

The runners-up prize of 10,000 baht went to Thanasan Jampathai for "Benz Woman Changes Her Mind" filmed on March 26th by the bridge on Rachadapisek Road crossing the Lat Prao intersection.

 

 

A female driver decided to abort using the bridge and change lanes resulting in two motorcycles crashing into the back of her. She has admitted everything but this continues to be the subject of investigation by Suthisan police.

 

Third prize of 5,000 baht has already been seen on Thai visa back in early March. The person who filmed "Hit Once Hit Again" was not mentioned but the footage featured 22 year old Pornthep Wangkornklang running over a motorcyclist not once but twice.

 

 

He then went on a rampage of destruction in the Sri Nakharin area of Samut Prakarn damaging other vehicles admitting later that he couldn't drive.

 

Samrong Neua police have him facing the courts for negligent and reckless driving causing injury.

 

Six other consolation prizes will also be given out today (Thursday) in a ceremony at the national legislature at 1pm.

don't know if they will do any of that but these sample videos strengthen my desire to minimize driving in thailand

If the price money was collected from the driver at fault, this would "nearly" make sense. Amazing Thailand!

Oh God! Turning the whole thing into a competition for filming the best crashes? This is going to do nothing to quell the carnage, in fact it is more likely to encourage it.

it clarifies guilt and it is not likely to encourage faulty driving.

 

cameras at red light could use this technique,

always watching, and always seek out the culprit through the number,

just that the police also always need a camera pointed at them

I am not at all convinced that this is remotely a good idea. We have sufficient idiocy on our roads already. Introducing a competition to film and make public gruesome shots of people being injured and killed, makes the whole thing feel like some sort of macabre sport.

I believe it will not be too long before new cars come fitted with dash cams and maybe some time in the distant future could become mandatory.

Sensible idea lets go make a video of our appalling driving the bigger the crash the more we stash what could possibly go wrong.

I'm at a loss trying to understand how a dashcam competition can cause

more accidents, on the contrary, it will encourage people to have more

of them so road accidents will be fully documented and rouge behaviour

can be studied for better traffic management and solutions....

Off course! It´s illegal to not join the competition.
