Chiang Mai check stops

Recommended Posts

The Aussie has been there at least a year and I think more !

No one seems to know who he is which is strange.

From the Thapae gate to Maya, 3 check stops, then hit them all again on the way back, and another near China Town to grab some fruit. 7 stops in an hour or so, what a hassle.

Several years, in fact.  But these check stops are hardly new. They just come in waves. For a while you see them every day, then nothing for a few weeks, then back again.  I ride every day and so no longer get stopped, but they certainly are making money for the Widows & Orphan's Fund!

"What a sad life for these people that could never be a police officer in their own country so they come here in hopes of acceptance.. "

 

I understand that he was quite a senior officer in Australia before coming to live here, he wants to help the the Frangs here if and when they have problems with local law.

Do some checking on You Tube, there are vids on frangs assisting tourist police.

That would be fine if they are pulling random ppl over and checking for everything but they are just pulling foreigners and strickly for a IDP. That is where the easiest access to cash on these checkpoints is. Nothing to do with safety.
