I'm guessing someone's brother, or maid, owns a GPS manufacturing plant. 

Must increase the production of Brown envelopes!

The logic is flawed. Criminals won't install a GPS, just as criminals wont do TM30, so it will not affect crime.

 

These idiots can't get 50% of people to wear helmets or fix brake lights...how they going to enforce a 3,000 baht GPS system.

 

Fail.

That's a very generous percentage, I fear you hit the wrong key.

Anyone who would be a target for crominals could be easily tracked and shot, robbed, raped, or kidnapped. The criminals use all the tech we have and more. This wpuld play into their hans and put the general puplic at further risk not less. As said before, all criminals can change codings of GPS and remove them at will. They will not have any impact on crime or speeding but have an impact on poor peoples pockets. They are trying to use yhd technology for revenue collection rather than make people safe.

A proper driving test like in Europe, regular TV adverts showing drivers how to drive. A 20000 baht fine for not wearing a helmet or driving on footpaths or the wrong direction on a roadway. Proper enforcement of the vehicle testing with big fines for the garages that don't do the checks properly. Proper maintenance and lighting on roads. Loads of good stuff they could do but no, they wsnt to screw the people for more indirect taxes.

They can't even monitor their own police cars ,bikes and emergency vehicles. 

 

Have more than 13 million unpaid traffic offense fines.

 

So how will they monitor every single public car, bike and truck?

Minister, you can monitor speed , it is done by means of a policeman and speed gun, or, as i suspect if there are no available police officers a fixed camera is just as good or better, i get a feeling the GPS idea might not go down to well with the motorists who refuse to obey any rules.

Is there not a requirement for statements to go through a media office before released

Yet more evidence of this governments Orwellian paranoia about security. Are they insane or just insecure?

 

When they steal a car in the UK, first thing the thief does is find the tracker and chuck it in a bin.

 

If they give me a GPS I am gonna attach it to a Skytrain and they can monitor that endlessly going to and fro.

 

They would microchip all of us if they thought they could get away with it. (Note to self:- Do not feed the animals with ideas).
