Speed trap on Way to Bangkok

I guess all of you live your lives at 80 km an hour.  I feel  sorry for you...you are the rear view mirror people.

Some of us prefer a faster pace and pay the occasional 500 baht. And look back at people plodding along and say stupid you.

The important takeaway is that they allow latitude until 110 km, and that there is an active trap at that spot now.

Bye bye, rear view people!

I shall watch out for you making a comment about 'stupid Thai drivers' when the next speed related accident is reported on TVF.

In my opinion there should be many more "speeding traps" on the highways here. Stop driving like an a**hole, have less accidents, save lives.

Not having the appropriate driving licence (debatable).

How is that debatable, you either have a valid Thai DL or you don't.

One day you way lost a friend or family member because another driver decided - as you do - that speed limitations don't apply to him...

Then maybe you will understand who of us is stupid ! :jap:

I've driven many times through those parts over the years. There's always been speed traps before and after Nakhon Sawan. The wife is pretty good on talking the police out of writing me up for a few hundred baht. 

 

Speed cameras are becoming more common, those tickets go on your record. Best to keep it around 100 and 110.  

Is it proven that tickets go on your record? And if infact yes are points given?

You may have a valid licence; however, the officer may not consider it valid.

always carry a bag of small coins for when i get stopped for speeding. Tip them out on the table to pay the fine, Really pisses them off

Same as when stopped, .They say you speeding, i say no and close the window. Wait till he produces a photo, then take my time examining it before handing it back . If table for payment is across the road, always make him stand in the road, stop the traffic before i will cross, again, this seems to upset them a little

Points for speeding now ??? Since when and how ? Never had any, never seen any, never told by police about any.

All tickets through the post get filed under my desk, , "pending payment "

OP must be a new driver in Thailand as speed traps have been in use all across Thailand for years now, every city even in Issan. There are signs of a camera with a speed limit on it at most highways these days. If you follow the rule and stop speeding you wont get fined.

aren't all motor accidents "speed related", with many of them due to slow drivers too ?

Driving to suit the road conditions is the correct way, which can be at a fast speed, but perfectly safe if roads quiet, not crawling along hogging the road, forming a rolling roadblock, which so many Thais seem to do

I'm 74 and been driving and riding all my adult life. Please don't lecture me on what is and is not safe on the roads.
