Songkran crackdown nets police 240 PVC water guns and 22 loud MCs

PATTAYA:--An April 14 police crackdown netted police 240 PVC high-powered water guns and 22 motorcycles modified with loud exhausts.

 

Pol. Lt. Col. Saranpong Maithongkulthorn, Pattaya Police Station Inspector and his intrepid team of highly trained bobbies, confiscated the PVC guns with a directive from higher ups that the high-powered water ejectors could cause harm to revelers. It could also lead to accidents if shot at motorcyclists.

 

They also impounded the motorcycles and announced the “situation was normal.”


There was no mention of fines or arrests, or any penance the perpetrators might have suffered due to their inappropriate behavior.

Although I am all for removing these now numerous scooters that have no effective exhaust and are extremely loud and annoying - how are they testing them for noise compliance, I know of people who have been wrongly fined, when asked how did they measure the sound level ?, answer - they didn't

Intrepid team of highly trained bobbies must surely be in dispute unless they were having a day off during the photo op🤔

I find the bucket of water heaved at you as you ride along the road on your scooter much more dangerous than any pvc water gun.

Yep, situation is pretty normal alright - enforce the easy stuff and then gather for a photo op and some back-slapping.

Best thing would be to allow the madness and water splashing on specified roads and areas,  totally closed to trafic. Case solved.

they are a vague guide and are not calibrated for each device, as for police - they need a calibrated measuring device in order to properly enforce the law
