Bus and pickup truck drivers fined for exhaust pollution

I don't know how the detection process works, but reading the above, it leaves me with the impression when stating a percentage of 'black smoke' they must be checking it against a colour chart?

Or has it been simplified for the readership?

 

What is the standard that should be checked against? Doesn't involve checking the amount of certain noxious emissions somehow - surely it can't be only a 'percentage of black smoke' - or am I giving too much credit to the police on this?

 

yes you are

See that's the problem Thai people don't care about 1000baht fine 

So nothing going to change 

Better traffic police and bigger fines that will be a good start 

And stop burning garbish etc 

Wake up Thailand if you really care about the next generation 

Therein lies the problem Thais don't give a flying <deleted> about tomorrow or the next generation it's all about today. The word tomorrow does not exist in their vocabulary

Isuzu pick-ups seem the worst when somchai thinks he has a fast car and guns it .

The amount of thick black smoke coming out is incredible.

Sadly , the next generation is way way beyond the end of the nose foresight they are so fond of.

the pickups that have had their ECU's modified, usually with exhaust/muffler changed.

Quite easy to spot when on the Sukhumvit, they're the ones that take off at speed and belch the black crap everywhere.

 

Its about time the law came down on these idiots.

 

Are you saying its by design ? I always thought it was lack of maintenance. They should just ban all pickups from entering BKK if they are diesel engines. I still don't get it why they let these big diesel pickups in a city. They are obviously more polluting then normal smaller cars.

The idiots have their ECU remapped, it improves horsepower by allowing more fuel into the system, the system cant burn all the fuel efficiently which is why the black crap is expelled.

Many of these vehicles are new

 

I have noticed some minivans (Hiace/Urvans etc.) are also being modified, anything Diesel powered.
