PHUKET:-- Patong Police have set up a new check point on Phra Mettha Rd to catch speeding tourists after a video emerged on social media showing a tourist on a motorcycle popping a wheelie on the road.

 

Patong Police Chief Col Anotai Jindamanee said, “We have invited the driver in the video and the rental shop owner to Patong Police Station this evening (Feb 21) to discuss the incident. We will then decide how to proceed with charges.”

 

“We will also tell the rental shop owner to explain the traffic rules to all future renters,” he added.

What a sensationalist over reaction, while the majority of road users, including the pseudo police break the road laws daily with impunity.

Only reason I opened the article. Thanks!
