In a bid to ease traffic congestion outside Bangkok schools at the start of the new semester, police are providing a free motorcycle service to ferry kids to class from five designated locations.

Assistant to National Police Chief Pol Lt General Damrongsak Kittiprapas said on Wednesday that the project "Song Nong Teung Rongrian" (Sending Kids to School) would see traffic police provide free rides to pupils from five areas – Ploenchit Tollway's exit ramp, Silom Tollway's exit ramp, Victory Monument Tollway's exit ramp, the area under Rama 4 Tollway, and the Tang Hua Seng U-Turn point.

Damrongsak was speaking as he led deputy traffic police chief Pol Maj General Jirasan Kaeosaeng-ek, traffic police commander Pol Maj General Nithithorn Jintakanon and officials to inspect the free school rides outside Bangkok Christian College on Sathorn Road. 

 

Bangkok Christian College director Supakit Jitklongsap said his school would soon be using a smartphone application to students travel to school.

I think that is the family car, dropping the kid off... you know, to the motorcycle service.

Who will get the blame when the first kid is killed in a motorcycle accident?

What about all the poor, ordinary kids whose parents don’t have chauffeur-driven cars to get them to the police ‘pick-up points? Any plans for them?

So the fine police force in BKK have now become taxi bike drivers.

This is a step up for them, actually doing something 

Saves them the time for switching 'uniforms' from job to job

Yes, I noticed that none of the kids brought any helmets.

Looks more or less like a public stunt to me.
