RTP chief "satisfied" with nationwide street racing crackdown - 86,000 bikes seized since June




The chief of the Royal Thai Police Gen Chakthip Chaijinda has expressed himself satisfied with police efforts to crackdown on illegal street racers since June. 


Thousands of bikes and cars have been seized, hundreds of thousands have been fined and arrested including parents of teen racers. 


Problems remain - especially in Bangkok - but the chief has urged all forces throughout the kingdom to keep their foot on the pedal and eradicate street racing. 


Naew Na reported on a meeting chaired by assistant commissioner of the RTP Pol Lt-Gen Damrongsak  Kittipraphat at HQ on Thursday. Chiefs at all nine regional police areas were linked by video conferencing. 


Lt-Gen Damrongsak said that chief Chakthip was satisfied  that arrests were up and complaints were down. 


He singled out efforts in Nakhon Ratchasima as being a model to follow. Their data collection activities and lightning task force was making a real difference. 


Bangkok presented a challenge, he said, as the area was large and stretched into outlying districts but in the capital too there had been less complaints. 


In the four month period from June 27th to October 27th 1,157 racers had been arrested.


Some 225 parents had faced penalties in relation to their children. 


A total of 357,070 people had been fined for related traffic violations. 


Cars seized amounted to 1,180 and 86,354 bikes had been impounded. 


Thirty seven people were in line for rewards for information about street racing. Eight had received payments so far.


The Lt-Gen urged the public to keep calling on 191 or 1599 to report street racing.

Must be an initiative by the government to stimulate the economy.


Scrap all the seized motorbikes, encouraging the newly-discovered pedestrians to buy another bike. What could possibly go wrong?


Perhaps they could do the same to other law-breakers. Prison breakouts seem popular recently, they could flatten the escapees once they've been caught.


That would make it easier for them to slide under doors and escape again.

Isn't that available in an Ikea flatpack?

I knew a your from that way

Who hung by her heels from the doorway.

She shoured 'Young man, get off the divan'.

I think I've discovered one more way.
