Cops helpless as illegal street-racers invade city

By The Nation




A swarm of over 100 motorbikes modified to produce ear-splitting noise shattered the peace in Prachin Buri on Thursday, as riders used the city streets as their personal racetrack.


Alerted to the illegal racing by locals, police scrambled to put up checkpoints along the racers’ route in the city, 150 kilometres east of Bangkok. However, they only managed to nab 14 of the bikers after most of the gang melted into traffic.


The detained bikers were carted off to the police station where all were identified as minors below the age of 16. Officers notified their parents and let them go.


However, their motorcycles have been seized and are parked at the station, after police found that their mufflers had been modified so that noise from the exhaust pipes exceeded the legal limit.

Crush all the Bikes...they won't be in a hurry to do it again !

Trained police officers are helpless against teenagers on motorcycles.  If I read this right they set up check points waiting for the street racers to come to them.  I guess going out to catch them wo

These kids are awesome. Glad to see some things never change.
