CCTV Cameras everywhere?

Recommended Posts

Just a general question, I live in a small town (population around 40,000) near Surat Thani and over the last couple weeks have noticed hundreds of CCTV cameras appearing, mostly at round-abouts, entrances to soi's in fact every where. On one main stretch of road covering about 3 klm I have counted 22 CCTV cameras! They are goverment owned and they are all Bosh cctv so not cheap. Just wanted to know if this is happening all over Thailand?

I’m all for it. Hopefully, it will deter terrorism down south. It can also be very useful in prosecuting traffic violations, if the government ever gets to that.

yes, they are everywhere here as they are everywhere in countries like USA, China or UK where governments dont give a sh... about privacy rights and data protection...

 

and i my opinion it is BS to think that it will deterr anybody, specially here in Thailand, just watch the news how people could not care less to be on camera... and the argument "if you have nothing to hide.." is also invalid in my opinion, I have the right for privacy and never agreed to be watched 24-7

Yes true, I do not think it will deter people, look at the case of the man who robbed the gold shop and killed innocent people, anyone would know there are cameras there. Interesting programmes on youtube about China's camera sysytem and how they are linked into everything about you

Well it would appear that cctv played a big part in tracking down the Lopburi gold killer, so i am all for it .

Yes I think they have a place and use and they are part of life, I have a number of cameras around my house. But what I am surprised by is the very large number of these new Bosh CCTV installations. Just on the two sois I use to get to the local park (4minute drive away) there are 7 cameras. As mention on a 3 klm road I counted 22 cameras.

with the quality of cameras installed by the government, you shouldnt be to scared. But those frome 7eleven and shops i think is of better and why not.. Thai police have solved many cases by just following the perpetrator through cctv
