Big Joke has spoken! No more tourist rip offs by tuk-tuk drivers in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Hopefully he will come and do some talking in Pattaya, where there is plenty of scope for stopping rip-offs perpetrated by public transport drivers. Though at least we dont have any tuk-tuks here, thank God.

The Big BJ is trying to change the subject and get the media to stop asking him all those pesky questions about the young Saudi lady. Tuk-tuks are so much more his speed.

I like this Guy; he does at least try to get things done unlike those before him who were just brown envelope collectors who sat on their butt's all day.   However; i do wonder how long it will be before he is either reigned in or they find his bullet riddled Truck down some side soi ?

Don't worry about him he is on the winning team, no harm will come to him.

I think this guy is just talk with very little action.  He has his subordinates, which seems to be everyone in government, arrest or detain a handful of people and then talks about it and then sternly warns evildoers he will catch them; just like the ones his underlings caught.  Kinda stupid

This is good news for Chiang Mai, despite his name Big Joke, you can trust this guy.

He fixed your immigration problems, now it's time for the tuk tuks.

Once again, LEGALIZE GRAB!!! That will force these crooks to become more honest (not totally honest, but closer). Vietnam has the same issues, but at least with Grab you can get a ride and know what the fare will be before you accept it. I have found that hotels in Hanoi are offering car service at rates very similar to what I would get from Grab - about 50% less than what they used to charge.

If I ride in tuk tuk here in Chiang Mai I always ask first how much. I have never been charged more than quoted even though quoted price is higher than Uber/Grab. Used Uber a lot but found Grab not very good finding my house so don't use them a lot.

What's with the wall behind him,looks like dented metal,dented from the other side,were a bunch of irate Tuk tuk drivers banging on it trying to interupt his press conference.

No no no. It is tuk tuk drivers trying different physical ways of extracting extra from tourists! 😁

While he is on scams in CM he might look into 1,000 baht for a residence letter(which takes about 3 mins to do).Years ago it was free then 500 baht ,now 1000 baht,  inflation or some other reason ?
