Are any of these checkpoints perchance actually physically anywhere near to Bangkok city limits - where the best chance of nabbing those who are planning to indulge in some inter-provincial travelling would presumably lie?

Love not carrying a smart device daily, I do have one but every time I go to use it the battery is flat so I toss it back in the drawer.... My laptop covers my needs for anything a smart device could ever offer.

Mmm. Laptops make poor GPS navigation tools, especially on a motorcycle! They also are awkward for beach photography. 😎

 

On the other hand, when was the last time your friend butt-dialed you from his laptop? 

 

Still, I get your point, and you are correct. Actually I have one of each and use them both daily. Different tools have different uses.

My vehicle has navigation built in from the factory and I rarely take photo's.

 

not sure why my friends butt and my laptop need to be in the same sentence but I assume you and your friends are into that so I'll not judge.

You register on your smart phone of course, which the government assumes everyone has.  That not being the case, I have no idea what one does.

 

Many with smart phones, will, most likely, be unable to top up the sim cards, due to no work and no money!

Starting to sound more like China every day.  You won't need a smartphone once a gazillion surveillance cameras are up and running and relaying your picture to a central data base to check your social/medical status.

And in what century is that likely to happen, remember this is Thailand

I guess you have never heard of butt dialing. People put their phone in the back pocket and redial a previous call when they sit down. 

Now you know. 

Glad for you about your car and impressed that you don't take photos.

 

I guess I'm in the minority in both cases. How sad for me.

Sounds like a good way to break the screen on a phone, I have seen the phone in the back pocket thing... mostly done by girls.

 

Thinking about it now some were very cute and they can come dial my butt when ever they like.

 

Myself, I'll stick to finger dialing............................

 

But back to butt dialing, how does the butt get past the lock screen to dial a number ?
