Confusing traffic at Nongprue-Khao Mai Kaew intersection causes concern

1364-p2-N-Oct-18-02-Confusing-traffic-2.

 

PATTAYA:-- Problems for commuters have arisen in Khao Maikaew due to unclear traffic lines at the Highway 3240 (Chaiyapornwithi) junction with Rural Road 4095, and at Pong Interchange where people are making quick U-turns to get onto the overpass. Also, some commuters suddenly turn right to get onto Highway 36 after crossing the bridge.


Residents using these roads say these problems regularly cause accidents and annoyance.


Banglamung District Chief Amnart Charoensri visited the area with his team and predicted the problems would be easy to solve. He instructed Banglamung Highway Dept to start by erasing the yellow dashed lines on the roads that are causing confusion, and install a stop sign on Highway 3240 from Khao Maikaew to turn right to Nongprue. New, correct traffic lines can be painted next week.


The problem at Pong Interchange would be fixed by having the Chonburi Highway Dept. install traffic posts to keep people from making U-turns there. A more permanent solution could be made in the middle of next year.


In the meantime, surveys will be conducted to find the best long term solutions, followed by budget proposals to carry out plans determined by the surveys. If the budget is approved, work will begin in April 2020.

Or they could have a cop on duty to discourage poor driving habits.

Never mind discouragement.  Better to collect 1,000baht from all.

That has unfortunately not anything to do with unclear traffic lines. It has to do with that people can´t follow normal traffic rules. That´s not confusing, it´s stupid.

if they used twigs and small branches then they would be OK, I THINK !!!

that's another way of saying that they will monitor the Road Toll (but it's a bit late by then)

For a nation of drivers who don't look beyond the back of the car in-front of them whilst driving, disobey road rules, don't look in their mirrors, don't use their indicators properly, don't give-way and block junctions, shoot at other drivers who dared to overtake them, don't stop after causing an accident, etc, etc, erasing yellow lines and painting new ones next week is not going to make a blind bit of difference.

 

Until the police start policing, and the government start governing, there's little hope of reducing the daily slaughter on the roads.
