The Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Varawut Silpa-archa, will propose to the Cabinet on Tuesday (January 21) a number of measures to tackle the PM 2.5 dust particle crisis, which has made the capital’s air quality unsafe in some areas.

 

One of the measures is to allow trucks to enter inner Bangkok only on even-number dates.

 

The measures are proposed to last until the end of next month. New and more stringent measures will be introduced if these proposed measures fail to tackle the PM2.5 crisis, he said.

Hello,

 

I think the proposal is ridiculous , Enforce Safety and Exhaust Emission Control with all vehicles !!!

if they don’t pass testing and control they don’t drive !! And if they do not comply big fines or Driver Card Suspension Or both PERIOD !! 

You mean, actually look to a westernize country for solution?

Dumb. Total pollution will not be reduced and odd numbered days will be off the charts! Plus traffic jams.

If none of the measures include stopping the burning of fields,forests and rubbish then it will fail to tackle the crisis.

Agreed. And the same number of trucks will enter Bangkok no matter what day it is. The odds and evens scheme is used in other cities outside Thailand not to impact on pollution but to try a reign in traffic congestion

The usual pathetic solutions which do not address the root cause at all.

 

 

Impotence from the top officials, down.

It seems that you are swimming in the murky, truly senseless ideas, it begins to impose a ban on all vehicles that infest the air, in this way the traffic problem would be solved too!
