Patong Police are investigating alleged foreign motorbike racing gangs in Patong after a viral video clip in local social media.

 

The Patong Police report that the clip of tourists who have been driving their motorbikes at high speed around the streets of Patong has been very popular and provided them with a lot of information about the locations, the bikes and the riders.

 

Police are now investigating the incident to find the people on the bikes so they can charge them and take legal action.

Hoons??

If Thai police were to have mobile police units that could catch these idiot bikers, which includes Thai as well a non-Thai, they just might advance into modern policing.

The roads are full of them "hoons".  The sad part is they don't even know it.

I hope when they get caught we'll get to see some finger points. Hoons (plural), means there are a few of them, which means there might be a lot of finger pointing. I'm excited!

Thanks. That's a new word for my vocabulary.  I certainly shall use it often as where I live it probably applies to 50% of motorcycle riders and 25% of car drivers.

I thought someone who is actually in Phuket and affected by this should comment so I have. 😍

 

My bet it that its the young 'French Arab' types who have ghettoised the south end of Nanai. They frequently use the traffic lights in Kamala as start points for drag racing as well. They don't like being laughed at (allegedly 😂) when they screw up their starts and stall their bikes.

I'd put money on that bet too...........they are bloody idiots and endanger other folks lives. If one crashed his bike and was hurt, I would simply drive by and say, "som nam na''. 

 

Having said that there are a few idiot Italians here riding in a similar manner.

used to mainly see them flying about on Yam T-Max's now seems they're preferred bikes are X-Max's, as said South End of Nanai is getting like a Ghetto with them, all with their little man-bags
