This is just another of his pathetic stunts, trying to convince people that he is doing a good job.

A stunt just prior to the election for obvious reasons.

Colin, you've misspelt 'stunt'.

PC Plod was out in force yesterday outside the PathumThani University stopping and emissions checking all big trucks and buses (and causing traffic chaos which only added to the pollution).

 

There were a number of vehicles stopped with the drivers having a friendly chat to the cops. Doubtless lots of tea was being bought.

 

The actual effectiveness of these checks (other than boosting the tea fund) is debatable.

Is he going to ban loudspeaker vans slowing traffic advertising the newly closed factories?  These vans must be the most futile form of advertising in the world yet still businesses continue to pay!

Yeah. Even seen them in the countryside where only the kwae and some noi are listening!! 555😂😅😂😅

Hey, bluesofa, have you spelt misspelt correctly? I was thinking it should be 2 separate words, miss-spelt. Just a minute, I'll check. Yes, you're right . . . I think they changed it just recently 🙂

 

How about Gen. Prayuth, BSc mistargets pollution causes? No, that should be miss-targets, but he's definitely miss-taken, though.

He needs a special mask; one that will effectively block PM 2.5 particulate. The one he is wearing as well as the ones on display there are completely ineffective in blocking PM 2.5.

I was keen on the idea of getting to know miss world. Or is it miss-whirled - that well-known blender misprit.

His big Mercedes will almost certainly run on diesel and his daily blouse will almost certainly be made in a factory that emits some sort of muck. The sooner he realises that Bangkok, like the rest of Thailand under the Junta's sleeping bear of a government, is a city totally out of control from the road-planning and vehicle numbers viewpoints. That he and his cohorts can't see that, when there are half-a-million vehicles - many of them gas-guzzling hi-so carriers, crawling along hundreds of kilometres of gridlocked roads, there is bound to be a pollution cloud, pretty well says it all . . .

Exactly, plus when you add on the buses, security vehicles etc, etc. that make up these Hi-So convoys. Then the gridlock on the streets caused by police road blocks to let them through with no delays.

I can think of something else his mask should effectively block.

I hope it is a mistake in translation in the original news article. The biggest polluters are the trucks and buses that belch out 100's of times more particulates than cars and are never controlled.  Add to that a complete lack of control on factory emissions, street vendors all cooking away and zero attempts to control car use inside super congested Bangkok because of the egocentric love affair Thais have with cars that make them look good. 

 

But it can all be solved by looking in the wrong places and avoiding doing the things that need to be done because of corrupt special interests.

 

What's new?
