78 arrested with illegally modified motorcycles in road racing crackdown

Recommended Posts

This is becoming every Sat news. Why don't the police close down roads every Friday night so the clowns can race and get wasted.

It will never stop if you don't crush their bikes

fines don't help 

Plus these are mostly children so it's their parents who need punishment for allowing them to behave like cretins.  But of course this is Thailand where its not just children who get away with behaving like cretins, rather the entire administration so basically nothing will ever change.

Cue the next generation; it's like trying to hold back the tide, and King Canute can tell you all about that.

He added that police also found 18 big-bike motorcycles making noises louder than allowed by the law so they were prohibited from use for 30 days.

And then you can use it again  'till you get caught the next time.

No need to crush the bikes. Replace the illegal exhausts with legal ones and charge the bike owners for the cost. If they don't pay, sell the bikes at the fair market price after 30 days. Up to the offenders.

Funny how there is never any talk about impounding their bikes, as was the case of the two idiot foreigners doing wheelies a couple of days ago, plus fines and maybe jail time!

Street sweeping community service of 100 hours for each of them or jail for a week if they don't show up. Auction off the bikes, once stripped of modifications, and donate proceeds to a local orphanage...bet there isn't much street racing thereafter by scooter-boy. This sort of silly BS needs to be squared away.

On Soi Khao Noi the day of the week doesn't matter it's everyday just after school gets out they race home change shoes and their into it up and down the Soi popping wheelies racing each other all with their modified mufflers and where's Mr plod? holed up in his new police building. Yes Nongprue Police I'm referring to you.

Thank you for your common sense post.

I never understand these comments about crushing bikes and crushing cars. I realize that this is lawless Thailand (so to speak) but you can't just "crush" somebody else's property.

Perhaps if the law was changed to something like "confiscation if involved in road racing" and a provision was made to allow police to sell the property at public auction, this would be a deterrent.

The following quote was gleaned from a simple internet search "Asset forfeiture or asset seizure is a form of confiscation of assets by the state" and describes what I am suggesting.

The same could apply in the case of repeat drunk driving offences and/or assets used in the commission of drug pedaling/distribution cases.
