PHUKET: People in Phuket who report motorists violating basic transport laws can now receive nearly 50% of the fine issued, Phuket Land Transport Office (PLTO) Chief Banyat Kantha has confirmed.

 

The confirmation follows Chief Banyat holding a meeting with his own officers yesterday (Dec 11) to explain the rewards now on offer.

 

The rewards are in line with the announcement by Department of Land Transport Director-General Chirute Visalachitra on Monday (Dec 9), Mr Banyat said.

And how will they prove that Somchai is saying the truth and not just trying to rip off another foreigner in his car with falacious reporting ? ? ?

 

From the linked article:-

 

Quote

People reporting offenders are asked to provide photos and the licence plate number of the offending vehicle, Mr Banyat said.

 

“The informer must have complete evidence such as images or video clips. Also the informer must have clearly recorded the date, time and place of accident, a description of the vehicle, the vehicle’s registration and other information. It must be good enough so that officials can follow up quickly,” he explained.

 

Not foolproof but at least it's not entirely he said - she said.

So, by accurately turning in violators, a person could earn thousands every day.  Right?  So many questions.

 

Is not wearing a helmet an offense?  How much?

 

Can you set up a camera + recording system at an intersection to catch hundreds of violators?

 

Will the person who turns in a violator receive 24 hour police protection?  It will certainly be needed.

 

Would a falang need a work permit to do this?

 

Would it be safer to have the actual police do this, thus saving money and not creating violent reprisals?

 

 

 

All of these points where my exact same thoughts...Welcome the police of state. or is it the state of the police that speaks volumes.. No in fact we neeed "the eye of the pineapple" idea to strike again.. Start spying on your neighbours!! You can even earn money on it... NOT!

Is there a special set of road regulations for Phuket? Last time I went there everyone was overtaking on the inside lane.

I always thought side cars were illegal

This is also what I have often heard.
The "saleng" are vehicles theoretically prohibited on open roads in Thailand, like quads which are not registered and yet we see them on the road ...
But there are hundreds of thousands ... which are registered with the plate of the motorcycle whereas it is not a motorcycle anymore but a vehicle with three wheels ...

All this is <deleted>; the cops just have to do the work for which they are paid.
But we must not forget either that the delation is the national sport of the Thai people.

How would a person know what country a driver is from. If my brother was driving down the main Street I wouldn't know it was him because of the blacked out windows?

Interesting idea?

 

The problem here is the Thais authorities have no idea themselves as to the rules or proper execution therefore if I report a violation other than someone being drunk or something obvious they will just give you a stare What?

 

I would be rich if they knew and believe when I report an violation even then as a foreigner the police would say " No This is Thailand " what a waste of time for a foreigner and don't expect much reporting from Thais since they have no idea what the rules are?🙄👨‍✈️
