Proposal for all cars and motorcycles to have GPS by law - "Big Brother" storm brewing

Recommended Posts

Just another way to extort cash from the Minnions but would never surprise me if they made it law for Farang owned vehicles, as we are apparently the evil ones in their midst !

Hang on ...hang on ... sure 'some' GPS units are becoming quite cheap and are 'personal' GPS units whether they be in a car, on a bike or in your pocket, but the GPS units that relay signals back to a Base Station are a different story ... we are looking at thousands of dollars and even more for the base station to monitor them, probably into the $100,000's ... Mining Companies often have them to keep track of their drivers etc. including where and when they may stop (when they shouldn't) ...

Surely easier just to implant a GPS chip in everybody and their dog.

You clearly forgot the busses and trabspoet van companies including taxis as these or company owned vehicles not privately. How about starting with them including getting chiped themselves being the drivers. So after they comit a crime and run theu cam be found even after they ditch their vehicle they commited the crime in.

I don't think that they're going near far enough. Everyone should be required to wear an active body cam at all times, 24/7, in or out of the house. 😎

I just posted on another thread that Thai bureaucrats solutions to problems show a pathetic lack of thought. It's strangely gratifying, saddening, and amusing -- all at once -- to be validated so quickly!

He said that if all vehicles had the technology then the DLT would be able to monitor speeds. 

 

And the added benefit would be that the location of the driver would be known at all times meaning that crime could be lessened too. 

 

monitor speeds = tickets in the mail.

So they would know who the driver is too?

Or if you want to commit crime and/or speed disable the device.

Don't disable the device. Leave it in in your shed.
